Ordinary citizens can train to be part of a community emergency response teams or volunteer law enforcement officials. Some South Georgians say the citizen corps is a step in the right direction.
"It will let us as citizens believe that we are doing something a little more than just sitting back and watching and then maybe playing an active role in what is happening to us as a country," says Sherry Branch.
