Albany-- Troy Conley’s last day with Dougherty county police is Friday. He plans to take charge of the school system's police force Monday morning.
There is concern that Conley was pushed through without notice to the public and that he doesn't meet the recommended qualifications.
Conley received his degree from Columbus University, an online college the U.S. Separtment of Education says is not properly accredited. Despite that, the board says Conley is the best choice for the job.
There has been confusion over whether state law required the school board to release the names of up to three finalists and then wait 14-days before making hire.
The opinion of the State Attorney General's office is "no." Darrell Robinson, the counsel to the attorney general, says that statute does not apply to the school police chief's job.
The School Board can hire a chief without the waiting period. All of the applications for the job fall under the state's general open records law, and WALB has made a formal request for all of those files so that we can examine the qualifications of all applicants.
