GCO Asks Dekalb PD to Obey the Law

GCO attorney John Monroe wrote the deputy chief in charge of permit processing for Dekalb Police, asking them to abide by the requirements of OCGA 16-11-129((d)(4). That code section requires a law enforcement agency to return a report to the probate judge within 30 days after it is requested by the probate judge (generally triggered with the fingerprint request). Dekalb PD commonly takes 30 days just to schedule a fingerprint appointment, and then does not return a report for weeks after that. A copy of the letter may be viewed here.
