The Newton County Sheriff’s Office, Choosing Healthy Activities and Methods Promoting Safety (CHAMPS) Program, is approaching the completion of another school year. The CHAMPS program is a curriculum designed by the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association tailored to meet the unique needs of students by equipping them to resist destructive behavior. CHAMPS addresses subject matters to include Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Abuse Prevention; Gangs and Violence; Peer Pressure and Bullying; Internet Safety; Consequences and many more important topics.

This year, 1,633 students successfully completed the program from 16 schools. Two of those schools are new additions to the program. NCSO believes it is important to provide valuable educational services to all children of Newton County.

Since program inception, we have noticed a substantial difference in the behavior of the students who completed the program. They have increased academic engagement and an overall improvement in their behavior. We have every reason to believe CHAMPS is providing core value to our students, families and county. Many of the first participants are now 10th grade students. Some of these same students are a part of NCSO Explorer program, who are interested in a career in law enforcement.

We continue to receive great support from families of the students and the community. This program is another way of extending police services. By starting early with our youth, we build sound relationships that transfers to a long-term, successful relation between the community and law enforcement.
