Sheriff Brown and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the successful completion of the 2013-2014 CHAMPS school year.  This school term, 1,469 students completed the program.  Lesson plans are tailored for particular schools based on the school’s needs. The course is facilitated by Deputies who are certified to teach by the Georgia Sheriff’s Association. It is the goal of the Deputies to teach the students what they need to be successful in the future and how to avoid the obstacles they will face along the way. The Deputies are charged with leaving a lasting positive impression on each student with hopes to counteract the negative image often projected by the media. 

Sheriff Brown attends each CHAMPS graduation to extend words of encouragement to the students.  He challenges “all students to become NBA stars in life, Never Be Arrested”.  Since the inception of CHAMPS in 2009, under the administration of Sheriff Brown, 7,461 students have successfully completed the course.

The program is funded by local businesses, companies and individuals in the community without the use of any tax revenue. —Contributed by Cpl. Wade Freeman
