Lieutenant Jeremy Taylor

In 1990 the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, the Department of Community Affairs, the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council, the Georgia Sheriff’s Association, the Georgia Municipal Association, and the Georgia Association of County Commissioners came together through a collaborative partnership and developed the Georgia Law Enforcement Certification Program. The Law Enforcement Certification program is a comprehensive set of guidelines and standards that summaries contemporary thought and best practices that are used to improve agency management and systems.
