  Sheriff Brown photoNewton County Sheriff’s Office Host its 8th Annual Halloween Shut-In

Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its 8th Annual Halloween Shut-In on October 31, 2014. The annual shut-in was started in 2006 by Sheriff Ezell Brown; Georgia State Board of Pardon and Parole; and Georgia Department of Corrections Probation Operations. Sex offenders who are currently on parole or probation are required to be under supervision at the mandatory event from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., which is considered peak “trick-or-treat” hours. The intent of the event is to keep the high risk sex offenders from having any contact with children on Halloween night, update official records, review compliance issues and inform them of any new and/or revised laws.

The program has included guest speaker, the Honorable Judge Horace Johnson, Jr., since the program’s inception. He explains the prosecutorial process of sex offenders. The District Attorney’s Office explains laws related to sex offenders and facilitate a question and answer session. Sheriff Brown address sex offenders’ behavior and the impact on family, friends, the community and the lawmakers. 

Sheriff Brown is credited with creating NCSO Sex Offender Residential Mapping System and has traveled throughout Georgia to advocate for implementation of a statewide mapping system. Sheriff Brown “believes education and cooperation is the key to safeguard some sex offenders from incarceration.” 

Newton County currently has 235 registered sex offenders. All registered sex offenders are listed on the NCSO website, Sex Offender Registry.

Newton County Sheriff’s Office Annual Halloween Candy Patrol

Candy is a huge part of what makes Halloween special. Unfortunately, harmful individuals can dampened the spirit of the night CHAMPS, Community Outreach and Community Policing Divisions joined forces to support this effort with treats at Covington Square, Newton Plaza and the Ellington’s Community, so parents can feel safe to bring their children out to enjoy a day designed for family fun. We passed out over 50,000 pieces of Halloween candy on Friday, October 31, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. 

Sheriff Brown believes “it is important that NCSO connect with children; so as they grow up, they have a positive image of law enforcement.”
