Griffin Police Department and the Media - PART I
By Editor Becky Watts

GRIFFIN - Pike County Times has covered news for Griffin and Spalding County when time allowed over the past several years. This investigation began because the Griffin Police Department (PD) began issuing press releases only on Facebook and not to the press at the end of January of 2019. The policy has since changed, then changed back, and then changed again, but lately Griffin PD has begun issuing regular press releases to the press again. In the course of this discussion over whether something can be called a “press release” if it is not issued and sent to the press, Pike County Times decided to investigate whether there was a difference in how the local and Atlanta media were treated as well as seeing if any news media were singled out for special treatment. This is the first part of a series of articles. Click here for more.

[Note from the Editor on 5.1.19: Grady's ambulance contract was on this agenda, and commissioners chose not to act on Grady's options in the meeting. If Grady chooses to sever the contract, it had to be done today because there is a 60 day clause that says, "Either party may terminate this Agreement by notifying the other party in writing not less than sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term." I've already put in an open records request for this information, and my breaking news subscribers will know it first. Keep an eye out here though because I'll likely upload it tomorrow night.]
