RAD Class in October
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office has scheduled its next RAD class for October 13th and October 20th. This is a two day class (October 13th & 20th), 9:00am–3:00pm each day (12 total hours of training). The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office has taught the R.A.D. method (Rape Aggression Defense) for several years. Those who are unfamiliar with RAD, it is a self defense class for women only. R.A.D. not only teaches physical defense techniques but it also enlightens women on how to spot and avoid vulnerable locations and how to detect and steer clear of risky situations. The training and knowledge are second to none. The classes are sponsored by Sheriff Langley and are free to Carroll County citizens. If you or anyone you know are interested in participating in the class you can register by contacting Jackson Lawrence at the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office 917-277-8321, or call 770.830.5916 ext2234. For more R.A.D. information visit our website at carrollsheriff.com.

Georgia Law Regarding Inmate Photos
RE: Dissemination of “Booking Photographs”
“Booking Photographs” No Longer Available On Website
Effective July 1, 2014, OCGA 35-1-18 takes effect which prohibits law enforcement agencies from posting booking photographs to a website; removes “booking photographs” from being obtained as “Open Records”; and prohibits the release of booking photographs unless certain conditions are met. In order to comply with those conditions the following procedure(s) shall take place immediately.
In the 2014 Legislative Session, HB 845 was introduced by Representatives Strickland of the 111th, Powell of the 171st, Rutledge of the 109th, Bruce of the 61st, Pruett of the 149th, and others. Both the House and the Senate passed the legislation with zero negative votes. It was signed into law by the Governor on April 24, 2014 to become effective July 1st, 2014.
Things to remember:
- The Sheriff’s Office will no longer post “booking photographs” to our jail website.
- All requests to obtain photograph(s) shall be made in person and shall be in writing on the approved affidavit
- In addition to the written affidavit, the person requesting booking photographs shall provide pictured government identification (driver’s license, military ID, etc.) and a copy of the id shall be attached to the affidavit.
- (If the requester is representing an organization or firm, proof of employment or such representation should be verified and attached to the affidavit.)
- Further dissemination is prohibited except as provided for by law.
Outdoor Warning Siren Information
We have received a electronic copy of the Outdoor Warning Siren brochure providing details to how the system works.
On September 15, 2010 the Carroll County Sheriff's Office became only the 15th Sheriff’s Office to become certified in the State of Georgia out of 159 counties. Less that 15% of agencies eligible to achieve the State Certification have accomplished this objective. We are very proud of our employees for the effort and professionalism they have displayed as we achieved this goal.
