Oconee County Sheriff's Office announces the creation of a local Logan's Law Database.
Logan's Law (HB 631) went into effect on July 1 and provides a system for local governments to maintain a database with information to alert first responders that there are individuals in the home who may have special needs. This is a voluntary database, so each county can decide if it wants to participate. We feel this will be a great resource for our dispatchers and any responding personnel, giving them additional information prior to arriving on scene. This information is for emergency personnel only and will not be shared with others.
