The January District Nine meeting will be held in Lavonia at the Historic Depot located at 1269 East Main Street. Please be advised that a good ole southern barbecue will be served at lunch so the training will begin at 10:00 am. Breakfast will not be served, but we will have plenty of coffee and light snacks for the early arrivers. I encourage each of you to attend this meeting as we share “A Case Study In a Small Town Police Shooting”. The training is focused on a six day period in December 2016 when six Georgia law enforcement officers were shot, two of those being fatal. We will examine the shootings in Lavonia as well as the aftermath followed by the tragic events in Americus. The Instructors for the training session will be Lavonia Police Chief Bruce Carlisle and Americus Police Chief Mark Scott.
