The 5th Annual STOP THE VIOLENCE Coed Softball Tournament is now registering softball teams (from local, state, and federal public service agencies) interested in taking the challenge to take the field! We hope that your department will come and join us as we all work together to “STOP THE VIOLENCE".
The registration form, team roster and player release waiver will need to be completed and emailed to email@example.com by April 14 to reserve your slot, as only 12 slots are available.
Please mail to the address on the enrollment application, and make checks payable to Douglas County Task Force. You may bring the team release-waiver (completed and signed by each player) on game day or you may email it in advance if you prefer.
All team players are NOT required to be in public service, therefore you may recruit players from any outside source.
This year, there is a Facebook page to help promote the event: (https://www.facebook.com/douglastaskforcesoftball). We are also going to try to line up some corporate sponsors to assist teams with their registration fees, if needed.
Thank you in advance for considering participation in this very worthwhile fundraiser.
For more information, please contact:

Andrew Cade-Carmichael, a Fulton County inmate, received a new felony charge after being turned over to Douglas County last week. Cade-Carmichael was highly aggravated and began using profanity shortly after arriving at the Douglas County Jail. During his booking process, officers placed an ID band on him which contained a RFID chip for identification purposes. Cade-Carmichael immediately ripped the band off and was subsequently charged with interference with government property. On Friday, February 28th, he appeared before the Magistrate Court and was given a $2,500 bond for the new charge.

Traffic Enforcement Division
Sheriff Phil Miller is announcing a partnership with the Douglas County Board of Education and American Traffic Solutions in an attempt to save lives at school bus stop locations throughout the county. Through the partnership, American Traffic Solutions has installed motion sensing video cameras on Douglas County school buses. These cameras give detailed information on vehicles that fail to stop for loading and unloading of our children from school buses.
American Traffic Solutions then processes the videos and sends them to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. A deputy sheriff from the traffic unit reviews the videos and decides when a violation has occurred. American Traffic Solutions then mails a citation to the registered owner of those vehicles with information on how to view their violation on line and details on how to pay the civil fine of $ 300.00
All monies go back to the Douglas County Board of Education to defray costs of the program.
Along with this program the DCSO will continue to enforce school bus stop sign violations while out on patrol. Please drive with care and pay attention while you are around a school bus for stops.
Col. Jeff Nalley
