The State of Georgia Law Enforcement Certification process, created by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, is a voluntary, time-sensitive, rigorous review of law enforcement policies and procedures and those seeking recertification must meet or exceed some 118 standards. Inspectors recently spent two days inspecting the files and records of the Conyers police.
The CPD reportedly had discrepancies in three areas out of the 100 standards that applied to Conyers (the other 18 were waived because they did not apply): training, courtroom security and property and evidence.
"We needed more time to get all that information together to meet those standards and we didn't have that time," said Lucas.
