In an effort to meet the training needs of dedicated Marshals Offices across the great state of Georgia, four marshals made the decision to form the Georgia Marshals Training Network on September 10, 2010. Marshal Greg Countryman (Muscogee County), Marshal Antonio Johnson (Fulton County), Marshal Steve Mann (DeKalb County), and Marshal Steve Smith (Richmond County) met and formed the network. We would like to congratulate and welcome two (2) new Marshals. In 2017, Ramone Lamkin was elected Marshal of the Richmond County Marshal’s Office in Augusta and Richard Berkowitz was appointed Marshal of the DeKalb County Marshal’s Office. Welcome Marshal Ramone Lamkin and Marshal Richard Berkowitz.
Out of the network came the Georgia Marshals Training Network Conference. The first conference was held in Columbus and hosted by the Muscogee County Marshal’s Office under the leadership of Marshal Greg Countryman. The Muscogee County Marshal’s Office hosted the conferences in 2012 – 2017. The next conference will be held in Columbus, GA on October 2, 2018 – October 5, 2018. The conference site and hotel is the DoubleTree by Hilton at 5351 Sidney Simons Blvd, Columbus, Georgia 31904.
