Chief’s Day at the Capitol/Goals Conference
Mar 14 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

(5 total executive hours are available – for morning and afternoon events)

Please see the memo below from Frank V. Rotondo, Executive Director:

Thursday, March 14, 2019, has been declared “Police Chiefs/Heads of Law Enforcement Agencies Day” at the Georgia State Capitol.

The location for our pre-Capitol meeting is:

Georgia Department of Public Safety
180 Central Ave SW
Atlanta, Georgia 30303

(The above location is in the Talmadge Plaza area, one block west of the Capitol, across the street from the Fulton County Courthouse at the intersection of Central Ave and Mitchell Street.  The covered, free parking is on Central Ave)

President Wirthman will begin our March Executive Board/Training meeting at 9:00 AM.

The board agenda is not yet complete, but it is expected to include, but not limited to:

  • An introduction of our host, DPS Commissioner Mark McDonough
  • Hate Crime Legislation – Allison Padilla-Goodman, ADL Regional Director
  • Several current state elected officials to speak about their duties
  • A block of instruction on “The Legislative Process” and an overview of introduced legislation

After the Board meeting/training program (ending at about 11:15 AM), we will walk to the Twin Towers (Sloppy Floyd Buildings) for lunch in the cafeteria.  We will be assigned one of the cafeteria lines where a GACP employee will be stationed to pay.  After lunch, you are encouraged to walk across the roadway to the Capitol and/or to the Coverdale Legislative Office Building (CLOB) to meet with one or more of your legislators.

At 12:45 PM, we will reconvene in the Rotunda south wing area near the staircase for a group photo (please dress professionally). If Governor Kemp’s schedule permits, he will join us in the photo and make a few remarks. Also, two resolutions related to tributes will be presented.  One Resolution will be read declaring March 14, 2019 as “Police Chiefs/Heads of Law Enforcement Agencies Appreciation Day”.  That resolution will be presented by one of our strongest allies, Representative Bill Hitchens (District 161), Chairman of the House Public Safety Committee. The second resolution will be read honoring GACP’s 2018 Chief of the Year, Mike Jones of the Suwanee Police Department. That resolution will be read by Senator John Albers (District 56), Chairman of the Senate Public Safety Committee.

After our Capitol assembly, we will return to the Georgia Department of Public Safety Building from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM for two additional hours of training. A one-hour training program will be delivered by Officer Eric King of Atlanta Police Department, followed by our in-coming President, Chief Wesley Walker, who will preside over our 2019 Goals Conference. *District Representatives, Committee Chairs, and members who aspire to be part of GACP’s leadership team, please do your best to attend this additional two-hour offering.

I would be remiss if I did not tell you we could never predict what will happen at the Capitol on any day.  Therefore, please be flexible, because one thing I have learned in my 23 years serving as your legislative liaison is that unpredictability is really the rule under the Gold Dome.

Training Hours:

9:00 AM through the presentations at the Capitol, Three CEO/POST will be granted only to those who attend both the meeting/training program and the proclamation readings.

2:00 PM through 4:00 PM (Training and Goals Conference), Two additional hours of CEO/POST training hours will be granted only to those who stay for the Training and Goals Conference.

History has dictated that the most often asked questions are:

  • Where can I park my vehicle?    This year, we have good news regarding parking.  You may park your vehicle for the day at our training site. Carpooling would be appreciated!
  • Can I wear my gun into the Capitol?  That answer is simple – if you are sworn, you can carry your weapon at the Capitol.
  • Should I wear my uniform?  You are encouraged to wear your uniform.
  • Can I bring one of my other staff members?  Simply said…Yes.
  • If my significant other wishes to come to Atlanta with me?  Family is family.

If you have additional questions, call our office at 770-495-9650.

On behalf of the GACP Executive Board, I urge you to show-up and support President Joseph Wirthman and our in-coming President, Chief Wesley Walker, as well as the other members of the GACP Executive Board.

Remember, mark your calendar “busy” for March 14, 2019!
