The Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council has discretionary authority by law, to discipline officers. Disciplinary action is taken in the form of sanctions against an officer's certification. Action is based on the preponderance of evidence that conduct was exhibited which is deemed to be in violation of the P.O.S.T. Act (O.C.G.A. 35-8 as amended.)

Agents are assigned to the Investigations Division to investigate the involuntary terminations of officers, suspensions of more than 30 day, and alleged criminal involvement of any officer. The investigator then makes a report to P.O.S.T. This report is reviewed and may be submitted to the P.O.S.T. Probable Cause Committee (PCC) for further action/recommendation. The PCC recommendation to Council may include:

  1. Revocation of Certification

  2. Suspension of Certification

  3. Probation

  4. Other Sanctions as Permitted by Law (O.C.G.A. 35-8-7.1(11))
