Protecting the public with police, fire, emergency, and criminal justice systems is one of the primary responsibilities of local government. SPLOST dollars have helped pay for many new police precinct buildings, fire stations, and a new courthouse for Recorder's and Juvenile Courts.
The earliest SPLOST funds paid for the main courthouse, the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, and more recently built our new police training facility.

| ||SPLOST funds built nine new stations (#22-30) and relocated several others to new buildings in better locations. These stations not only provide fire protection but also offer medical emergency and rescue assistance.|
By providing the bricks-and-mortar facilities, SPLOST funds have enabled the County to use tax revenues to hire and train record numbers of new officers-133 in 2006 alone plus another 113 sheriff's deputies for courthouse and jail security.

The current four-year SPLOST program is expected to raise at least $87.5 million designated for public safety capital improvements.
