You can request paper copies of dispatch reports and/or 911 audio recordings. They can be requested and released, as long as they are not part of an active investigation. Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 50 18, 1971(c) and (d), Laurens County is authorized to charge for the costs of producing documents requested. The cost of producing these documents is .10¢ per page and $5 per disc, as well as a charge for the "direct administrative costs for complying with a request under this code section." This means you will be charged the hourly salary of the lowest paid full-time employee who has the necessary skill and training to perform the request. However, you will not be charged for the first 15 minutes spent on your request. You will be contacted via email and sent a cost worksheet reflecting any necessary fees. Requests are fulfilled in the order they are received.
The request form (if not submitted online) may be mailed or dropped off in person at:
515 Southern Pines Road
Dublin, GA 31021
It can also be faxed to 478-275-7295. The 911 Communications Center has 3 business days (72 hours) to acknowledge receipt of the request and to inform you how long it will take to complete the request. (Open Records Act Request: O.C.G.A. 50 18, 1970.) The E911 Center will take payment in the form of cash, check or credit card. You will be provided a receipt for your records.
