  Sheriff Brown photoSomething to Talk About:

Our C.H.A.M.P.S. Program is taught to every fifth grader in Newton County Schools. C.H.A.M.P.S. stands for Choosing Healthy Activities and Methods Promoting Safety. The program is tailored to fit the individual school needs. The instructors assigned to C.H.A.M.P.S. teach subject matters that include: Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Abuse Prevention, Gangs and Violence, Peer Pressure/Bullying, Internet Safety, Methamphetamine and Cocaine.

At the conclusion of the course, the students participate in a very rewarding graduation ceremony where they receive rewards for various activities and they enjoy their final formal time with the instructors. In addition to receiving various recognitions, some students are allowed to share essays and other projects completed during the duration of the program. Deputy Susan Young, Deputy Kimberly Cox and Deputy Favel Edwards are certified instructors that share a passion for teaching this course and they are able to relate to the students in so many ways because they teach them for weeks and they focus on the character of the students and gain their confidence.

Since the inception of C.H.A.M.P.S. in 2009, under the administration of Sheriff Ezell Brown, over 18,000 students have completed the course. Sheriff Brown and members of his staff attend each C.H.A.M.P.S. graduation to extend words of encouragement to the students. He challenges “all students to become NBA stars in life, which stands for Never Be Arrested and Never Be Absent from school.

The C.H.A.M.P.S. Program is funded locally by business, companies and individuals in our community without the use of any tax revenue.
