Chief Ray Grossman of the Cohutta Police Department was recently donated a laser speed detection device by the Varnell Police Department Chief of Police Lyle Grant. Varnell Police Chief Lyle Grant decided to donate the laser to the Cohutta Police Department, which previously only had radar speed detection devices.

"The more Chief (Ray) Grossman can do up there, it will affect us down south," Grant said. "Grossman has a reputation of getting out here and enforcing the traffic laws and it helps us. That's what it boils down to - keeping the roads safer."

Grossman said the lasers make it easier to pinpoint which car is speeding.

"You get a good individual reading," Grossman said. "It is much more efficient."

The gift was a continuation of the good relationship between the Varnell and Cohutta police departments, Grossman said.

"We are neighbors here," he said. "We back each other up on calls. At times the traffic on Highway 71 is pretty high. What we do affects what they do down there."
