Special Investigations Unit

The Special Investigations Unit is made up of agents from the Newton County Sheriff's Office. These agents investigate cases involving narcotics and other vice crimes that occur within Newton County. The Special Investigations Unit regularly works in conjunction with state and federal agencies to target these crimes.

The Newton County Sheriff's Office has implemented an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) program to directly assist with the operational elements of the Newton County Sheriff's Office in the prevention of crime, the apprehension of criminals, the preservation of the public peace and to protect the personal/property rights of the citizens of Newton County.

The UAS program will operate in coordination with law enforcement officersdrone photo conducting a specific mission as guided by the Certificate of Authorization (COA) issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). These operational procedures are designed to minimize risk to people, property and aircraft during the operation of the UAS while continuing to safeguard the right to privacy of all persons.

We believe that drones are saving lives and changing the way deputies are approaching missions.
