Description


Litter Law Enforcement Training/Workshop

Presented by Cpl Scott Carroll of Ga DNR Law Enforcement Division, the workshop is hosted by Keep McIntosh Beautiful in cooperation with McIntosh County and City of Darien governments, McIntosh County Sheriff's Department and City of Darien Police Department. The workshop has been made possible by a grant from the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation and is free of charge to all participants.

3 hours of POST credit is available for certified law enforcement officers that complete the workshop in the subjects of Environmental Law Enforcement, Tactics, and Solutions in the state of Georgia.


“Litter is a Crime”

Learn how to make your community safer by taking the time to enforce Georgia’s Comprehensive Litter Prevention and Abatement Act. The Act passed during the 2006 Legislative Session makes it easier to cite someone for littering or illegal dumping and has authorized additional Courts to hear those citations. Attendees will learn how the law has changed, how aggressive litter enforcement has been used as a deterrent to additional crimes, and how to work with the Courts and others to successfully deter littering and illegal dumping.
