There’s a lot of good reasons why the Georgia Highway Patrol is the slowest in the country.
The road patrol is only the sixth state agency to use a fixed-gear vehicle to enforce traffic laws.
In 2015, the agency used its fleet of fixed-grader trucks to slow down a single car on Interstate 40 in a major accident.
It also hasn’t had the best relationship with its own troopers, who are routinely deployed to more than 200,000 motorists a year, including those on a daily basis.
There’s also the fact that the Georgia Department of Transportation, which manages the highway patrol’s fleet, hasn’t done much to improve its performance in recent years.
That’s where the Georgia State Patrol comes in.
In addition to its fixed-wheeler vehicles, the Georgia state patrol has its own, more capable vehicle: a military-grade patrol truck.
The GSPT is the only law enforcement agency in the nation that uses the military-model TOW missile to shoot down missiles.
That means that the troopers can get the job done much more quickly and effectively than their civilian counterparts, and at a lower cost.
The Georgia Department is currently in the midst of buying the TOW missiles, and the State Patrol has already signed contracts to purchase more of the weapons, with the hope of fielding them on state highways by the end of the year.
The state’s road patrol also has a reputation for being very good at stopping speeding cars, a practice that’s made the troopers even more valuable to the highway police force.
But for some reasons, it’s not as easy as you might think to get to work on the job.
For starters, the state highway patrol has a very tight budget.
According to state officials, its troopers have to make up for any lost money from the sale of military equipment by getting more drivers to work the roads.
That makes them vulnerable to being squeezed by the state legislature or their constituents, which is why they often work overtime and work overtime hard.
“The troopers have a very high turnover rate,” said John T. O’Brien, the GSPP’s general manager.
“And so we’re very dependent on them to do that.
They are a very large part of the budget, and they’re a very reliable source of revenue for the highway department.”
The road cops’ workload is also quite demanding.
Every day, more than 500 troopers must be on the road, according to the state’s Highway Patrol Association.
That number is expected to increase to more that 1,000 by 2021, as the agency gets more vehicles into the state and the cost of the Tow missiles continues to drop.
The highway patrol also relies heavily on manpower.
For a variety of reasons, the department has a difficult time hiring and training new troopers.
In a report last year, the Department of Human Resources found that the agency was hiring only about 60 troopers per year, compared to more over 300 for other agencies in the state.
“When we do try to hire a new trooper, it takes a long time,” said Sgt. John Geddes, a spokesman for the Georgia DOT.
“That’s when we get some turnover.”
In addition, there are several factors that prevent the Georgia road patrol from doing its job.
First, the highway officers are often assigned to other agencies.
“I’ve never seen one of our troopers be assigned to another agency,” said Tanya L. Kall, the head of the highway troopers union.
“It doesn’t make sense to me, and I’m not sure I can support that.
And secondly, the troopers don’t know where their next assignment is going to come from.”
And third, the road patrol has to work alongside some of the most dangerous roads in the entire state, and that can make it difficult to communicate with one another and with the rest of the state when the state has to respond to a potential roadside bomb.
“We don’t even have a common vocabulary to refer to things like the highway, because we all know it’s a dangerous thing to do on the highway,” said Trooper Mark J. Smith, who is now on the state patrol.
“In some ways, the highways are like a playground for our troopers.”
It’s also not uncommon for troopers to encounter a dangerous situation while on the roads, either.
Last year, a Georgia trooper was injured when he tried to stop a speeding car on the interstate.
The trooper was eventually transported to a local hospital, where he was placed on a ventilator for 24 hours.
But he was so weak from the injuries he received that he didn’t even receive an ambulance ride to the hospital.
“You’ve got to be very careful about where you’re going to stop and what you’re doing,” said Smith.
“There’s a certain amount of adrenaline involved.
It’s not good.”
While the highway cops are able to work overtime, it can also be challenging for them to stay on the same
