GEORGIA — Driver's license bureaus and Georgia roads are becoming riskier places for illegal immigrants.

About two dozen driver's license investigators, state troopers and GBI agents have completed federal training to determine a suspect's legal status in the United States and, if necessary, start deportation proceedings.

Until now, the Cobb County Sheriff's Office has been the only police agency in Georgia to train with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Cobb began deporting inmates from its jail in July.
