The Georgia House of Representatives passed a bill Friday that would
allow voters to decide whether they want to abolish county police
departments, putting the fate of the much-maligned Glynn County Police
Department in jeopardy following its handling of the Ahmaud Arbery
Friday's bill, which passed 152-3 and now goes to the Senate, would
allow Peach State voters to determine whether to eliminate their county
police departments, moving authority to county sheriff's offices.
The Sheriff Department does not have the men to police the city and
I want to see how the vote turns out, because I don't believe the
majority of people in any county would dissolve the police department.
