(12-20)(4)(p)(aff) Grand Jury Presentments December Term 2016 Lamar Superior Court To: Honorable Judge Thomas H. Wilson, Chief Judge, Lamar County Superior Court Towaliga Judicial Circuit The Grand Jury chosen and sworn at the December Term 2016, of the Lamar County Superior Couirt, submits the following presentments: We wish to commend our Judge Thomas H. Wilson for the clarity and thoroughness of his charge to our body and for the dignity and efficiency with which court proceedings are conducted. We wish to express our appreciation to the District Attorney, Richard Milam, and his staff for the competent and courteous manner in which they have handled all matters brought before us. Also, we wish to thank our Bailiff Jim Jimmerson for his courteous help. We wish to commend the Clerk of Superior Court, Caleb A. Tyson and his staff for their assistance to the Grand Jury. We wish to commend Sheriff Brad White and the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office; Chief Chuck Keacle and Barnesville Police Department; Chief Jake Sutton and Milner Police Department for their outstanding protection of the people of Lamar County and their assistance to this Grand Jury. We wish to commend Wayne Jones, our Foreperson and Kirby Kale Kump our Clerk, for the work they performed during our deliberations. We also wish to commend all Officers, Deputies and Investigators who were proficient and professional in the explanations of the cases that were presented to this Grand Jury. We recommend that these presentments, Inspections and recommendations be published in the official organ and the regular fee be paid for publishing. Grand Jury Inspections: 1. Sheriff Brad White/County Jail: The facility was clean, orderly and professionally ran. The staff was friendly and helpful. The inmates we encountered were respectful, busy and appeared to be well treated. However, the age of the facility limits our County from having a state of the art facility. The safety of staff and inmates is a matter of supreme importance and our inspection of the control room left us with great concerns: 1. The control room needs major technological upgrading, especially with antiquated control panels and cell to control room intercom system. 2. Although we were encouraged to see the 911 system has been technologically upgraded recently, the GPS system in the patrol cars still needs to be added. 3. To increase the safety of the staff and inmates the ENTIRE internal security system needs to be on emergecy back-up power. 4. Some inmate showers are in desperate need of upgrading for the safety of prisoners. Given the age of the jail, the Sheriff is doing a great job administrating it. HOWEVER, we recommend serious consideration be given to building a new Jail facility as part of the next SPLOST budget. The location of the Magistrate Court inside the jail curtails transportation of inmates. The Magistrate Judge’s sense of respect and fairness toward the inmates was refreshing. 2. Caleb Tyson/Clerk of Superior Court: We the Grand Jurors went to the Clerk’s Office at the Lamar County Courthouse, we found a couple of things that needed adjusted like being overcrowded, but everything else seem to be in order. The Clerk made one specific comment, he would like to see the County give a $1.00 an hour raise in pay to entry level employees. 3. Andrea Anthony/Tax Commissioner: We found that the building is in need of new carpet; AC repair; Security glass for front counter. Security personnel on duty full time. Rear bathroom in need of repair (plumbing). Better internet for faster Customer Service. 4. Judge Kathryn Martin/ Probate Court: Planning stage for new Web based traffic system which requires a separate internet connection. Currently the Office shares Internet services with other Offices. No other specific needs or requests at this time. 5. Richard Milam/District Attorney: After investigating the DA’s Office we found everything to be in order and neat. We are encouraged that the DA’s Office will have a new Office in the Courthouse in order to add an additional Assistant District Attorney to help with caseload. This the 13 day of December, 2016. Respectfully submitted, Wayne Jones, Foreperson; Kirby Kale Kump, Clerk. Received in Open Court, ordered, filed and published. This the 14 day of December, 2016. /s/ Honorable Thomas H. Wilson, Judge, Superior Court, Towaliga Judicial Ciruit. Filed in Open Court, this the 14 day of December, 2016. /s/ Caleb A. Tyson, Clerk, Lamar Superior Court.
