The Act authorizes district attorneys in each judicial circuit to appoint one additional district attorney whose primary responsibility will be the prosecution of violations under the Georgia Controlled Substances Act. The Act calls these newly appointed attorneys special drug prosecutors. These prosecutors will be the same classification, compensation, benefits, and policies as other assistant district attorneys. Each special drug prosecutor will complete an initial training program prescribed by the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of the State of Georgia within twelve months of their employment and any other in-service training that the council shall prescribe.
