Yes. Police of any jurisdiction has the authority to cite a vehicle for any violations, as long as, vehicle is being operated in the jurisdiction where the police officer is sworn in and has police powers.

That would generally mean the same state where the citation was issued and would not give any real legal grounds to contest the validity of the citation based on the fact that police officer wrote "this state" instead of GA Code.
How long have you been a resident of GA and do you have GA driver license?
Was your vehicle registered to your name?
Unfortunately, the vehicle is required to be registered at the primary resident of the person who it is registered to, so my answer would remain the same and the vehicle that is owned and registered by a person who has primary residence in GA and also is licensed in GA, would be subject to all of the GA registration requirements, even if the vehicle is currently registered in another state somehow.
So, it is important to make sure that the vehicle registration under similar circumstances complies with GA Code.
It would depend on whether any issues / errors on the ticket would be considered serious enough to render ticket invalid and simple mistakes, such as misspelling of a name or date or birth, etc... would not be grounds to get the ticket dismissed based on the such minor errors.
I wish you the best of luck!
