A Georgia police officer was fired in June following disturbing allegations about his contact with several women.
WTVC reports that least four women came forward to accuse Sergeant Scott Martin of the Ringgold Police Department of sinister behavior. Police Chief Dan Bilbrey called for an internal investigation into the claims in June. The subsequent investigation, which can be viewed here, uncovered a pattern of stalking, sexual advances, and abuse of authority by Martin.
The first victim told investigators that she was contacted by Martin after he found her on Facebook. Martin told her that both he and his wife thought she was “cute” and repeatedly suggested that she sleep with his wife. She repeatedly denied his advances. When she messaged “oh my God STOP” on one occasion, he blocked her.
Martin found the second victim, a college instructor, through her Linkedin page. He located her at her college one day and sat in her class about gender and sexuality for about 15 minutes. He used pet names like “sweetie” and “stinker” in his messages to her and advised her to keep their conversations private from everyone, including the police. She feared that the demand was abusive as she had witnessed similar silencing tactics during her previous work with the Department of Family and Children’s services. She also reported that he watched her on campus and that she tried to avoid him.
The third victim told investigators that she met Martin when he walked into the bank where she worked to request a change in address and a new debit card following his divorce. Though Martin knew she was married, he added her on Snapchat. Their innocent message exchanges turned inappropriate after Martin requested personal pictures from her. He also reportedly sent an unsolicited picture of his genitals. She deleted him after stating that she would not be cheating on her husband.
Martin continued to be present in her life after he tried to visit her at work. He eventually married one of her former coworkers and added her as a friend on their joint Facebook account. He repeatedly asked her on a double date, which she and her husband refused in light of the Snapchat incident. He also continued to ask for sexual favors. The victim said she feared for her job since she worked alongside Martin’s aunt at the bank. She also expressed feelings of intimidation since Martin told her that he was a police officer.
The fourth victim told investigators that she met Martin as part of her job cleaning city properties. She said Martin continuously followed her at work and even to the gas station. At one point, she asked Martin if she broke any laws. He told her that she hadn’t. Martin repeatedly asked her questions about her intentions when he saw her at work. She also stated that he questioned her intentions when he saw her at the grocery store or gas station. The victim told investigators that the situation creeped her out even more because Martin was supposed to be one of her points of official contact if she ever experienced discomfort at work.
The investigation’s search into Martin’s work history found that he was fired from a school while working towards his teaching certificate. During the incident that led to his termination, he illegally used a student’s disciplinary record during a mock trial in a classroom. He was also found to have exchanged inappropriate messages with a female student. At another job, where he was employed as a counselor in training, he reportedly made an inappropriate sexual remark toward a head female counselor.
Administrators at that job also expressed concern about the idea of Martin becoming a police officer, speculating that he would possibly retaliate against others. Martin did not disclose his termination or this concern when he applied to be an officer.
As reported by WTVC, Martin was found to have violated five internal policies of the Ringgold Police Department, including “not conducting himself toward the public in a civil and professional manner as a police officer.”
Luckily for the women of Georgia, state law considers police disciplinary records to be public records. Should Martin seek employment at another police department in the state, the history of his firing and alleged behavior should not be difficult to uncover.

WHEN THEY “FIRED HIM”, DID IT MAKE A ‘POPPING SOUNDS” AND SCARE THE HELL OUT OF EVERYBODY? WAS THERE PANIC IN THE STREETS?
DID “OFFICERS OF THE LAW” “FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES”?
JILL SAID, “THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE ARE RUNNING DOWN THE STREET, PULLING OUT THEIR OWN HAIR WITH BOTH HANDS AND SCREAMING, “OH MY GOD SOMEBODY IS BEING SHOT!!!!!”
Well this hits home
I cant go into it too deep yet ..as Im the one investigating a Pig .. well because you know theres no point in reporting it to another Pig
He was a School liaison officer in my area that got fired due to the delinquency of a minor , and a shit ton of lies , we are also suspect hes a pedophile or another sick fck preying on kids (minors) I have his court papers , so I have a good idea what this POS is
well as we all suspect , he just goes to the next county over , or next town and gets a job because the school board , his union , and the city suits saw no reason to forward his shit to the next department and they sure as hell wont look into it . they would have hired him anyways because they like his kind ..this proves to me everything i thought i knew about the pigs .. yes its true
well Before we took our kid out of Public School and home schooled her , My kid went to where this pig was a school officer , so she knows him , and knows what he did ..and He knows her , and remembered her name ( yeah all these years )
fast forward 5 years or so ..
hes seeking out our kid on line , Face Book etc ..yes shes hip to his shit , and blocked him ( shes no longer a minor either and soon to be among the armed )
so Her dad(YVT) and Guardian of her life ( yes i take my role seriously until they throw dirt over me), says .. thats a NO ,, she told him NO
so were waiting to see if he knows what f-kin NO means
.. were just waiting to see what if any , is his next move ..(yup i did say “We”)
HANG IN THERE MAN. YOU DRIVE, ILL SHOOT……….
Oh I know you will
We’ve had this conversation
Koyote ( rides shotgun )
Awesome attitude concerning protecting you children till they throw dirt over you!
I’ve talked to my family on how I can protect from the grave
So , our move is to get as many of us armed
We’re taking the ladies to my range and getting them all qualified
Glad we have woke some of them up
Drag the fk through court right? Make this piece of shit pay! Sue the fk out of him, if nothing else. stick his ass in a cage.
Well our courts didn’t do shit about it the first time ( first I know of ) who knows what other priors this POS has
Nahh if it comes to it
He will get recorded and personally visited
With an ultimatum , leave her alone
I guess he will have a choice to make that could change his life forever
Like that idea much better, that’s the way it was done when real men got shit done. Nothing like a good dose of “shit your pants”.
We are watching closely , shes been instructed to watch for “bogus” FB account trying to contact her ( it being him , but a made up acct ..a kid, a fake girl etc )
She wont talk to just anyone on FB ..shes a Mom ( and My kid) so shes not naive about the stalkers ways
Were just in the mode of ..”lets hope he understands the word No”
Its better off for him if he does ..move on pal my 20 YO doesnt want anything to do with your 56 year old government goon ass , hell she sent a suitor packing when she was younger that was interested in dating her, over him saying hes going into the military to “follow orders” , so shes not looking for his kind of attention , shes got a man ..and a Dad
Again, I love it! “and a Dad”
She’s more than likely the reason I’m still here (alive)
So , I’ll take that job and everything that It comes with ,and love every minute of it
Fired… NOT CHARGED? WTF???
“Should Martin seek employment at another police department in the state, the history of his firing and alleged behavior should not be difficult to uncover.”
In which case he’ll be hired IMMEDIATELY.
