Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill creates the Georgia Sheriff's Cooperative Authority. The purpose of this authority is to serve as a cooperative for the development, acquisition and distribution of record management systems, information, public safety related databases, electronic monitoring of inmates and probationers, services, supplies and materials for sheriffs so that their offices can operate more cost efficiently. The authority is made up of seven members, including a member appointed by the executive board of ACCG. It also  provides for the powers of the authority which includes the ability to contract with local governments for the use of any property, facilities or services. Additionally, it authorizes the authority to fix and collect fees and charges for data, media, and other services furnished to it by individuals or private entities, but such fees and charges are required be filed annually with the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House of Representatives and may require legislative approval. A similar bill, HB 1141, was introduced in the House.
