Sheriff Brown applauds collaboration

On Monday, September 3 we experienced another traumatic event in Newton County involving Covington Police Department Officer, Matt Cooper being shot while in the line of duty. The law enforcement community is a family. When notification came out about the incident, NCSO deputies quickly responded to the scene and provided assistance as needed.

Our hearts go out to Officer Cooper, his family, and the City of Covington Police Department. Thank you to all the first responders who assisted at the scene and at the hospital including: Newton County Sheriff’s Office, Social Circle Police Department, Porterdale Police Department, Newton and Covington Fire Department, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, Atlanta Police Department, Georgia State Patrol, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Alcovy Judicial Circuit, Newton County EMS and Atlanta Medical Center. A special thanks goes to Atlanta Medical Center Security Team for being accommodating in every way from food, to comforting words.

It is times like these when it’s necessary for us to join together as a community; lifting up one of our own in prayer and lending a hand whenever possible.

We are called to do a job that is taxing to the mind, spirit and soul, however; it is a job that is necessary and we wear the badge proudly.

I would like to personally say to Officer Cooper, we are proud of you and we appreciate you. We are praying for you and we will be waiting with open arms for your return home.

May God bless all first responders in our community and most of all, may God bless Officer Matt Cooper.
