The Special Services division, commanded by Capt. Greg Post, is responsible for handling many of the administrative, support, and specialized duties for the department.  Capt.

Included under Capt. Post's command are the Professional Standards Unit (Training, Evidence and Records Department), Glynn Brunswick Narcotics Enforcement Team (GBNET), SWAT, and the Community Services Unit (Code Enforcement, CAPAC, Animal Control, Recruiting/Public Information, and GREAT).   

In addition to the many duties listed below, the officers in this division transport detainees from the Glynn County Detention Center to Municipal Court for appearances before the Municipal Judge; participate in community safety fairs and other public events;  and address community and civic groups on various topics such as crime prevention and how to begin a Neighborhood Crime Watch program.  They also coordinate community affairs such as the Citizens' Police Academy, the Citizen Observer Program and other special community events. 

Professional Standards Unit

 

 

 

 

 

 
This section provides members of the department with in-service training through a program that is recognized as a standard of excellence throughout the state.  Together they ensure that all employees receive the required training for their job assignment.  All officers in the state of Georgia are required to complete yearly training in order to maintain peace officer certification.  The Brunswick Police Department is committed to providing officers with state of the art training in all areas of law enforcement and communication.  One of the tools used to accomplish this is the FATS system, a highly advanced computerized system that helps officers prepare for the many scenarios they may encounter and aids them in the development of "shoot or don't shoot" skills.  These two officers are also responsible for the in-depth training of new recruits before they are released to a Field Training Officer (FTO) in the Patrol section for evaluation and further development of street skills.  New recruits are required to ride with their FTO until they have mastered all the skills required to perform patrol duties.
