Office of Professional Standards

The Newton County Sheriff's Office is committed to the goal of providing excellent law enforcement services to all our citizens. In a large part, reaching that goal depends on managing our most important resource, the dedicated employees that are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Office of Professional Standards (OPS) serves many functions within the Sheriff's Office with the primary goal of insuring the integrity of the Sheriff's Office and its employees.

OPS functions include: intensive pre-employment background investigations of all selected applicants, researching and implementing Standard Operating Procedures, documenting commendable employee performance, investigating allegations of employee misconduct, and law enforcement certification.

The Sheriff's Office encourages commendations for employees who perform their job admirably.

Each employee understands that hard work and selfless service are necessary components of being in law enforcement. Receiving recognition for a job well done is an outstanding compliment and always appreciated.

To submit a commendation or complaint, you may contact the Sheriff's Office by phone at (678) 625-1400, or come by the Sheriff's Office and speak with a deputy on duty.
