U.S. Highway 441 and State Highway 246

Dillard, GeorgiaJan 03, 20101 Comments

This is a three officer dept. which does not provide 24/ 7 police protection which is a requirement for operating speed detection devices in GA. The officers drive units which are not legally marked patrol vehicle as required by GA law. On Hwy. 441, watch for them hiding behind bushes and signs or blending in with other parked vehicles in parking lots. On Hwy. 246, watch for them to be hiding off the side of the highway under the RV park sign. They are legal there but just barely visible. Officers have been told they can hide the car as long as the officer with a handheld device is visible. This is not correct at all but it is in practice in Dillard. Latinos beware. You are easy prey and they will stop you without cause because of your race.

24/7 code section applies to part time officers not full time. 40-6-91 bottom subsection covers marked vehicles makes code section N/A. This applies to traffic units not patrol cars that answer calls and work traffic. This Department has been checked by DPS and results found that the Dillard Police Dept was not in violation of any of above comments. In car videos showed no violation of Racial profiling all P/C for violation were documented. Further checking The Dillard Police Dept was the only Department in Rabun Co that had a policy that forbids Racial profiling. I think before you comment and miss led people you should report the facts not fiction. The information I got came from my attorney when I plead guilty to 75 in a 45 after he tried avenues to protest from these comments. Some people think they know Georgia Law but until you hire an attorney you find out they blow smoke.
