On May 8, 2017, Governor Deal signed HB 292. Here we are in December of 2019 and Ga POST Council is still non-compliant with this law. The agency which oversees compliance of state law, training, and investigates officers for violations is itself not following state law. "In part, the bill clarifies that certain active and retired law enforcement officers shall be authorized to carry a handgun on or off duty anywhere within this state, and mandates that the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Council shall issue retired identification cards to those retired officers with at least ten years of aggregate service as a law enforcement officer. The bill also requires POST to establish criteria for determining a separation from service in good standing. POST Council is currently discussing the matter with the Attorney General’s office and developing written standards for ensuring compliance with all provisions of the law. POST Council will adopt rules to comply with the provisions of the bill. Rules are adopted in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act. The time line for implementation of these rules is unknown. " https://gapost.org/pdf_file/update_regarding_HB292.pdf The hold up is they are trying how to determine "In Good Standing", but every officer record says on the bottom if they are in good standing with POST. My record says, "Status: Good Standing". Not sure whats to figure out.
