Investigations Division

The Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council has discretionary authority, by law, to discipline officers. Disciplinary action is taken in the form of sanctions against an officer’s certification. Any action is based on the preponderance of evidence that officer conduct is in violation of the POST Act (O.C.G.A. 35-8 as amended).

POST Investigators are assigned cases of involuntary officer terminations, suspensions of more than 30 days, and alleged criminal involvement of any officer. At the conclusion of the investigation, the investigator makes a report to POST. This report is reviewed and may be submitted to the Probable Cause Committee (PCC) for further action/recommendation. The PCC recommendation to Council may include:

  1. Revocation of Certification
  2. Suspension of Certification
  3. Probation
  4. Other Sanctions as Permitted by Law (O.C.G.A. 35-8-7.1(11))
