Today is a difficult day for the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department. Today, Captain Steve Blevins retired after 29 years of outstanding service to our community. Its difficult because for many years Steve has been the heartbeat our department, he's dedicated his life to helping those who can not help themselves and to chasing the bad guys. There is no way to measure the amount of good that has come from his tireless service but each and every police officer in our department and in surrounding agencies will agree that the community is a safer place as a result of his service. Captain Blevins not only served his community but he served his fellow officers as well. He was and will always be a mentor and a true friend to all of us who carry the badge. Steve, it won't be the same walking through the doors at the P.D. and not seeing your smiling face or hearing your laughter fill the halls. You have served us well and your legacy lies within each and every officer who's life you've touched, who had the privilege to work with you and learn from you. You taught us all to be kind and fair but stand up and stand your ground when the situation calls for it. Thank you Captain Blevins for 29 years of dedicated service. Happy retirement!

National Bus Safety Week is October 22-26, but we believe bus safety should be recognized every day. Officers will be stopping cars and writing tickets to drivers who illegally pass a school bus while it is unloading/loading children. We will continue to do this for the remainder of the school year. Illegal passing of a school bus includes any time the red lights of the bus are flashing or the stop sign is visible, for all lanes of traffic in BOTH directions.* The fine for passing a school bus for the City of Fort Oglethorpe is $375 and includes 6 points on the offender's license. License suspension for one year occurs with a total accumulation of 15 points in a 24-month period.** We have included a video of a bus being passed while unloading children. This video contains very disturbing content; viewer discretion is advised. --- *- unless 4 lanes or more with a median separation. Traffic behind bus must stop. **- What are the Consequences of Unlawful Passing of a School Bus? The consequences of unlawfully passing a school bus include any lawful punishments allowed in a misdemeanor traffic offense. This can include 12 months jail or probation, $1000 in fines, community service, defensive driving school, alcohol and drug counseling, and/or any other class a judge believes that will correct the driver's behavior. In addition, the offense carries 6 points. Any person under the age of 21 convicted of a traffic offense having 4 or more points shall have their license suspended for 6 months. For drivers under the age of 18, accumulating 4 total points before age 18 will also result in a 6-month license suspension. For drivers over 21, their license can be suspended for accumulating 15 points in a 24-month period. However, a judge can hand down a “court-ordered” suspension of the driver's license to anyone convicted of a misdemeanor traffic offense. Many Georgia traffic ticket lawyers do not realize that a judge can suspend the license of a person, even for offenses that do not carry an automatic license suspension or result in 15 accumulated points. Passing a school bus also carries a minimum fine of $300 for a first offense, $750 for a second offenses, and $1000 for a third offense. All Georgia fines carry additional court costs and surcharges. A $300 fine will usually increase by 60% when the surcharges are added to the base fine. These consequences are for simply passing a school bus unlawfully. Should a crash, injury, or death occur as a result, the consequences would be much heftier. (Courtesy Richard Lawson)
