Sheriff Brown photoNewton County Sheriff Issues Appeal to Citizens In Fight Against Crime

Responding to the increasing number of people who want to assist law enforcement officials and build a stronger partnership in the fight against crime, Sheriff Brown announced today that Newton County citizens are being invited to become Honorary Members of the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association. 

Membership invitations go out in the mail shortly. Individuals who choose to join the voluntary program can do so for as little as $20, while businesses can show their support for a $50 contribution. The contributions provide critically important technical resources, training and legislative support on key criminal justice issues.

Contributions are tax-deductible and unlike other organizations in our state, the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association does not solicit membership by telephone. 

The membership program was formed to provide citizens with an opportunity to lend their support to more effective law enforcement and to help local law enforcement officers protect the lives and property of citizens.

“As the need for building stronger public-private law enforcement partnerships in this country continues to escalate, programs such as this continue to grow in importance,” said Sheriff Brown. “I encourage everyone receiving a membership invitation to consider joining forces with us by becoming an Honorary Member. It is a valuable investment in our future.”

Individuals that do not receive a membership invitation by mail and would like more information can do so by visiting www.georgiasheriffs.org or contacting the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association, PO Box 1000, Stockbridge, GA 30281, phone 770-914-1076.
