Lumpkin County law enforcement adopts Logan's Law database access

By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

Law enforcement in Lumpkin County is taking another step to advance its protection and services for its residents with a newly created database.

Sheriff Stacy Jarrard announced this week that his staff has partnered with the Georgia Emergency Communications Authority (GECA) to create the Logan's Law database for Lumpkin County residents.

Sheriff Jarrard says on social media pages that they encourage Lumpkin County residents to register any individual in their home who may have special needs. 

The feature helps 911 operators alert and inform first responders for the sake of being more compassionate before being dispatched to situations.  It also would allow law enforcement agents to identify any triggers that may overwhelm individuals with special needs by reducing any burden that could potentially arise.

You can find the form on the Sheriff's Office website at the following link:  https://www.lumpkincounty.gov/677/Logans-Law-HB-631 or contact 911 Communications Director Carlton Chester at: [email protected]
