  Sheriff Brown photoSomething to Talk About:

Happy New Year!

I’m excited to report we ended 2017 with a very successful year here at the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, and I am thankful to all of our employees for working together to accomplish our desired goals. We’re ready to move forward in 2018 with new goals and objectives, and we plan to be “an active voice” in our communities.
Goals for 2018 include:

  • Allow the Sheriff’s Office the flexibility to be more competitive with compensation
  • Better retirement plan for Newton County Sheriff’s Office employees
  • Continue to maintain and build a bridge of trust between the Sheriff’s Office and the community by participating in community forums and events, cleaning up communities, embracing various projects,  mentoring children in the communities throughout the year, and devising a task force to address high crime neighborhood concerns
  • Properly staffing and expanding the West Side Precinct to provide excellent services to the Newton County citizens without overworking our employees
  • Erecting a new Administration Building at the main Sheriff’s Office site
  • Host annual leadership trainings
  • New pay rate classification plan to include career path steps
  • Provide necessary equipment and uniforms needed to effectively operate in the capacity of a mandated officer
  • Provide on-going training in leadership, staff development, and technological advances for all employees
  • Reinstate annual cost-of-living (COLA) and merit increases for all county employees

Thank you and I am looking forward to working with EVERYONE in order to accomplish the goals above in 2018.

Newton County Sheriff’s Office Camera Registration Program

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office recently rolled out the CrimeReports Camera Registration Program. This program allows citizens and businesses within the county to register their cameras with the Sheriff’s Office, in order to identify cameras in areas where crimes are committed. The cameras will provide valuable visual information in solving crimes. There is no active surveillance and no cost associated with registering your camera with the Sheriff’s Office.

This program allows citizens and businesses to register the name and location of their cameras, along with contact information that is useful for collecting information to potentially solve crimes.  Citizens create their own login using their own private password, and if they decide not to participate in the Camera Registration Program, they can delete their information and will be removed from the system.
 
In addition, this program allows Newton County Sheriff’s Office to have eye witnesses throughout the county.  It allows citizens to play an active role in helping local law enforcement use technology to keep neighborhoods safe and potentially solve crimes and close active cases.

Registration is easy by logging on to the Newton County Sheriff’s Office website (www.newtonsheriffga.org).  Once you log on, look on the right, under Quick Links and click on CrimeReports.  Along the top menu to the right, click on Register a Camera, and click on the blue Register Your Cameras button and follow the instructions.
Sheriff’s Winter Training Conference

Sheriff Ezell Brown attended the annual conference held at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center (Cobb Galleria) in Atlanta, GA, January 22-24, 2018. He was delighted to be joined by Monica Pearson who is a “VOICE” for the Georgia Sheriff’s Association in supporting compensation packages for Georgia Sheriffs and Deputies.

Sheriff Brown was inspired by Herschel Walker, former UGA and professional football player because he shared life experiences with the group that detailed his career from high school, to professional football, to the world of business.
