Cost Savings on NCSO Vehicles

Newton County Sheriff’s Office has saved significantly in the area of Patrol vehicles. Criminal Investigation Division (CID) black Crown Vics were reissued to Patrol to allow cost cuts in purchasing additional vehicles. In addition, we have changed the vehicle design, utilizing the “Ghost Look”. This allows a more covert appearance when attempting to detect suspicious criminal activity.

Special Olympics

Deputies with the Newton County Sheriff's Office participated in the 2016 Newton County Special Olympics, which was a 2-day event held at Sharp Stadium on May 4-5, 2016. The Special Olympics is an international competition, modeled on the Olympic Games, in which mentally and physically handicapped athletes compete. A few of NCSO’s Project Lifesaver program members participated in the event, and deputies were on site to encourage support.

C.H.A.M.P.S. Graduation to Conclude the 2015-2016 school year

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office held its last CHAMPS graduation for the 2015-2016 school year on May 19, 2016 at Mansfield Elementary. The graduation was a heartfelt closing event in which students raved of their experience in the program. A few students spoke on how the program has changed their lives, detailing home life with drug addicted family members and how the knowledge attained helped them make better life choices. A banner signed by all the CHAMPS schools and students was presented to Sheriff Ezell Brown as a special bestowal of thanks for bringing the CHAMPS program to Newton County. The Newton County Sheriff’s Office successfully graduated over 1,600 5th graders during the 2015-2016 school year.

Sheriff Ezell Brown and Investigator Jack Simpson Invited to Speak to Mississippi FBI

On May 25, 2016, Sheriff Ezell Brown and Investigator Jack Simpson traveled to Jackson Mississippi as special guest speakers for the FBI Leadership Development Conference. Sheriff Brown and Investigator Simpson have roughly 60 years of law enforcement experience combined. Coming up on his 92nd birthday on July 4, 2016, Investigator Simpson is the eldest serving Investigator in the U.S and Sheriff Brown is the longest serving member of the Newton County SWAT Team. During the trip both were greeted by Mississippi FBI staff: Deborah Madden, True Hammer, Don Alway and David Eiseinieich.

Newton County Sheriff’s Office Career Fair

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its first ever job fair on Thursday May 26 and Friday May 27 from 08:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m. at the law enforcement facility located at 15151 Alcovy Road Covington GA. Event fliers were sent to local churches, department of labor, Courthouse, and newspapers to assist in recruiting Detention Officer and Deputy Sheriff positions. Recruiting personnel conducted application screenings and on-site interviews. The event was a success, and resulted in bringing in other agency recruitment members to review the process in hopes of hosting their own career fair in the same format. With the turnover rate becoming so high in law enforcement with the past 2 years NCSO needed to fill roughly 20 vacant positions. The outcome of the career fair resulted in over 27 eligible candidates being considered for hire.

Youth Explosion  

On May 28, 2016 CHAMPS Deputies participated in the Youth Explosion and Community Outreach and Fair event hosted by WGFS Radio. Deputies spoke about youth empowerment, conflict resolution, internet safety, peer pressure and choices and consequences.
