Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its 4th Annual Back to School Supply Giveaway in conjunction with The Salvation Army, Washington Street Community Center, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Chi Tau Omega Chapter, Baxalta Inc. and Covington News. The program was founded on the belief that all children deserve to start their first day of school well prepared. The goal of the drive is to provide students with
the necessary supplies they need so that they are equipped to receive an education.

This year, 4,101 students were provided with book bags
filled with school supplies for Pre-K thru 12th grade. Last year, 2,925 students were serviced. The drive has grown tremendously. Several agencies and organizations were present to lend their assistance to the many families who came out.

A special thanks to Matt Crowe and Clay Newman for use of the building as the distribution site. We could not have responded to the needs of our community without the support of more than 150 individual volunteers and more than 23 representatives from youth and adult community organizations. We extend a heartfelt thanks to all who so generously donated time, money and an assortment of supplies to make the drive successful. The thoughtful donations enabled us to provide for our students, and had a dramatic impact on Newton County families. Our sponsors,  donors, and contributors demonstrated generosity and kindness.

Critical Initiative to Forge Partnerships Between Cops and Communities

In the wake of several controversial police-involved incidents around the country, key law enforcement executives, civil rights advocates and faith-based leaders are becoming mutually invested in deterring fatal exchanges between cops and citizens. On Saturday, June 6, 2015 in downtown Atlanta, the cradle of the American Civil Rights Movement, law enforcement officers and citizens of every race marched silently side-by-side from the gravesite of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the Atlanta Civic Center to promote and foster a culture of concern, cooperation and reciprocal respect. Several agency officials from around the state were in attendance including Sheriff Brown (Newton), Sheriff Jackson (Fulton), Sheriff Mann (DeKalb), Sheriff Hill (Clayton), Sheriff Sills (Putnam), Sheriff Long (Butts), Sheriff Babb (Fayette), Executive Director Terry Norris (Georgia Sheriffs Association), City of Atlanta Police Chief Turner, DeKalb County Police Chief Conroy and Clayton County Police Chief Porter.
