YES we have enough of them. This can be assured during lunch and buffet times throughtout the city. HEll can even eat lunch or get a parking space at local resturants without bumping into overweight
heros that know evrything but have never been anywhere in there life except the academy and the courthouse. But please remember there fightng the terible WAR ON DRUGS What is the score this week heros ARE you winning? If your not i quess u need to have another roadblock. Check those tags and insurance keep us safe.

We need more. I for one would hope there would be an officer or a deputy available and close by if I were to need assistance one day. This is a very large and for the most part rural county. If you divide the amount of law enforcement by the square miles they cover, you would give them all more credit for the job they do. I hate that somewhere down the line you had a bad experience with law enforcement, but to blatantly disrespect someone who would give his life to save yours is truly sad.I try to find something positive out of even the bad, so to you, I'll say thank you. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to give my children an example of the worst in society so that they may strive to be otherwise. Perhaps they may even do that by buying that Deputy's lunch. We'll make it in your honor.
To the Gilmer Deputies,Ellijay and East Ellijay Officers,Georgia State Patrol,GBI,DNR,DTF and all those who wear a badge so that we may be safe although others may seek to do you harm, THANK YOU!

Even when I was a teen and pretended to hate all cops, I understood the need for them when it mattered.

I don't think we have too many, here, but I do think people make wasteful calls to them.

I'd like to see more on 515, both on the north and south side of town, to slow these people down coming into Ellijay. Some times we have to be in the left lanes to make left turns and these idiots pass on tne right and then cut you off even if you are doing the speed limit.

Florida tags, Fulton, Dekalb, Cobb, Cherokee. Give em tickets and let that revenue help pay for the cost of law enforcement.

Plus it would be a lot safer through town.
