The Opposite of Government Accountability: Department of Community Supervision
Action Alert: On Monday, March 23rd, at 1pm in Room 310 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, the Senate Public Safety Committee will be hearing HB310, which would create the the largest, most powerful, and most Orwellian law enforcement agency in Georgia: the Department of Community Supervision. We can’t reform the criminal justice system by making it bigger and more dependent on policing for profit! Email the Committee members today and insist that they vote NO on this dangerous expansion of government power that would put us all one traffic ticket away from tyranny. Please come to Monday’s hearing to join other citizens standing against this overreach. We successfully fought no-knock search warrant legalization with common sense, facts, and persistence – let’s do the same with HB310. Read more on HB310 here; watch the full hearing before the House Committee here. We don’t need “reform” that makes the problem worse. Thank you for helping get that message out on this beautiful weekend.

Sample letter: To the members of the Public Safety Committee: I respectfully request that you vote against HB310, which expands government power significantly by creating expensive new agencies that will make criminal justice outcomes worse. This is much more than a “consolidation,” as bill supporters have claimed – this would create the largest law enforcement agency in the state of Georgia (and it would have legislative and judicial powers too), as well as a direct conduit for federal funding and control through the Governor’s Office of Transition, Support, and Reentry. This bill should not be rushed through session against the wishes of many rank-and-file employees of the system. Vote NO to protect our freedom and safety. Thank you for your consideration.
