Sheriff announces his new command staff

Newton County Sheriff Ezell Brown has formally announced his command staff which will help the citizens identify those people at the NCSO whom they can go to should they need assistance in any specific area. It will also allow the new sheriff to have a group of people he can rely on to carry things through.

"It's very important to have someone you can rely on," Brown said. "It's not that I don't have the utmost confidence in our other officers but it is someone that you can, for lack of a better expression, hold their feet to the fire to ensure the day-to-day operations and the vision for your community is carried out so that we can continue to deliver and to have a positive impact on the community and in the sheriffs office. It is very important to be able to delegate and to know that things are being carried through."
