I have never had a ticket or an arrest. The "citizens patrol and academy" are simply an election year ploy. Yes, there are many good cops; it is simply the leadership and pressure from the politicians that have forced them to spend the majority of their shifts trying to raise revenue. I also do not have a problem with traffic enforcement, but it should focus on traffic safety and problems areas and behavior: Not just trying to nail any minor violation 24/7.
I agree with the part about the Citizens patrol and academy , it is just a election year stunt. Somebodies tring to get everybody to think how good a guy he is and forget about the fling.

All you here that are putting down East Ellijay police and Ellijay police obviously don't pay too much attention to YOUR OWN SHERIFF and some who work within the "system". Tell me how the past election had such a huge gap with vote numbers in between first place and second lead??? Sounds RIGGED to me. That's a huge stretch between votes. And guess what? I know one female that works for Stacey that was posting all over her facebook about how she was "so happy that Stacey got re-elected. Now we can keep our jobs" and making a mockery out of the election like it was some sort of game. Bowman was ready to sit in that chair and get rid of all the "crooks and cons" that make the sheriff's department look like a joke. I still think Bowman should have won that. I know A LOT of people in Gilmer County, I probably know most of you, and everyone I talked to voted for Bowman!(now back on topic) There are MANY police officers, East Ellijay, Ellijay, and county deputies that are good police officers. They take their oath and careers seriously. You might have dealt with a bad egg or two in the mix but that doesn't mean the entire police force should get slandered for it. Our police help keep meth off the street, Drunk drivers from KILLING PEOPLE, and your children safely to and from school. SO shut up about our police force.

Why is this odd? I know an entire White House full of subjects that are happy they get to keep their jobs, also. While I would have wished them unemployed, it's the way it rolls.

Seems like your obsessed with the Pourhouse. The Pourhouse is a BAR the East Ellijay Police officers are COPS do you see the difference or should I get out my crayons. As much as your talking about the cops and the Pourhouse looks like you might be jealous or maybe evena fan. If you wwould like I might could go to both the Pourhouse and East Ellijay Police Department and see if I can get you an autograph or maybe even a T Shirt which ever you would prefer since its obvious...everythings about you.

I am so sick of people bitching about the LEO of this town. No one likes them untill they need them. They work horrible hrs for very little pay. They come in on their days off to help when needed and most of them are in general good people. They cut the people who deserve a break one when warranted. Get over it. In my life I have found the only people who don't like law enforcement are the ones that deserve the treatment they get. By the way I am not a cop nor do I wish to be bc I wouldn't give my time or life for most of you people!

Couldn't have said it better myself. Team COPS! I think anyone who downs/bashes the cops should use their real names on here so the law enforcement can read every negative thing you have to say and when you need help and they don't show up don't ask why. They put their lives on the line to protect all of us. You all complaining about our local police let alone any government law employees yet if one of your loved ones were injured or killed by a drunk driver you'd wish they stopped more DUIs. Think hardly about that one.

So the sheriff can deny service to people who didn't vote for him if that's the way it works? Correct?

All officers and locals will make all establishments close their doors for business. Bad to say but true. Heard someone who works at the Pourhouse also informs officers when someone drinks and leaves. Maybe they get a cut back or other privileges that are hush hush... I don't believe all of our officers are corrupt but is there a few? Most definite!

Doing 70mph between Walmart and Burger King isnt a minor violation on that dangerous stretch of road, Slow yourself down.
Doing 70mph is not a minor infraction becuase the state says it is a big deal. But the truth is that is perfectly sagfe to do 70 there. There are no roads coming into or off of 515. There is plenty of time to accelerate and decelerate. The only reason it is a problem is if people arent paying attention and if they are not then they are dangerous at every speed.

Ya know I've known a lot of cops around this town, deputies, Ellijay, and East Ellijay. No not because I've been arrested, or even ticketed (pulled over once though). I have been thinking about checking out the academy thing, and since Voter is dead set against it, I'm gonna go for it.
Hell Voter lets sign up together, maybe we'll both learn something. I do see you post a lot of nonsense about police that gets corrected frequently on this board.
I am a retired cop from Washington D.C.
