I currently reside in Michigan but have just been hired with the Georgia Dept of Corrections. I read that Correction Offiers are sworn peace officers but If Im not mistaken they still have to obtain a carry license. My question is, does it take the same amount of time for your lisense to be issued or is it a sooner process. Also do the same carry powers apply to them as normal citizens or are the carry powers different. Any info would be much appreciated. I have a ccw permit hear in Michigan and would also like to obtain one in georgia. by the way the county i will live in is Dekalb, if that matters. Thanks all.
