Where does it say that you have to have a cause to fire someone? If you look on the Georgia Secretary of State webpage under;
EMPLOYMENT AT WILL:
"Georgia recognizes the doctrine of employment at will. Employment at will means that in the absence of a written contract of employment for a defined duration, an employer can terminate an employee for good cause, bad cause or no cause at all, so long as it is not an illegal cause."
You go firing cops, firemen or EMTs and your gonna get sued...... period. An they win almost every time.

I never said to fire everyone. I hope nobody loses their job. However it always happens when a new sheriff takes over. If you read my post all I was doing was correcting someone that stated they could not be fired with out reason. I have worked in Military, Fire and Law Enforcement over the years and have seen it happen. It has happened in Georgia and courts have thrown out the cases due to Ga being a "AT WILL" state. Now if the person(s) let go were let for Illegally then they have a case.

Is the 911 Center under the sheriffs dept.? Most 911 centers in Georgia are under the Emergency Management or they are their own department within the county. The 911 center is usually staffed with non-sworn personnel not employed by the Sheriff. The 911 center should have their own policy and procedures. These policies should be established with input from the sheriffs dept along with fire and ems. There should also be a strict policy on what information should and should not be disseminated via radio for John Q public to hear. Names of complainants are not necessary on most calls dispatched.
