Social Circle's new police chief

After months of searching for the right person, Social Circle has picked a police chief. GBI Special Agent Terry Sosebee of Monroe will take over the position Dec. 1.

A press release from City Manager Doug White shows that Sosebee has 30 years of public safety, investigation and management experience. Sosebee has received hours of specialized training in areas such as homicide, theft, assault, sex crimes, narcotics, arson, surveillance, evidence collection, insurance fraud, computer-related crime, interview techniques, statement analysis, health care fraud, identity crimes and mortgage fraud investigation. He is also considered an expert and POST certified trainer on topics related to theft and arson investigations, public records transparency and management, identity crimes and mortgage fraud investigations.

Sosebee has worked at the GBI since 1983, beginning as a special agent and working his way up to special agent in charge which is his current title. He started his career with the Dalton Police Department in 1981 after graduating with a master's of public administration from Jacksonville State University.

White said Sosebee was one of close to 30 applicants who put in for the position, including former Public Safety Director Tom Fox, whose position was eliminated by the city council. Sosebee will make $65,000 annually.
