  • Criminal Investigations Division
    • Follow-Up: A few weeks ago, we reported that there was a crew operating in the metro Atlanta area shoplifting from Rite Aid stores. On 04-26-11, Rite Aid reported another theft from the Rite Aid at 3687 Hwy 5. A short time after this theft, the Rite Aid store on Chapel Hill Rd. reported that the same female was in there and had just left in a green Saturn. A store employee was able to provide a tag number on the car. A short time later, Deputy Goode located the car on Fairburn Rd. The driver of the car, Courtney Shannon, was found wearing the same clothes she was wearing at both stores along with a black bag containing the items she shoplifted from the Rite Aid stores in Douglas County. Investigator Gray was able to identify Tamala Stanley as another person who was involved in the thefts from Rite Aid. Through Investigator Gray's follow up on these cases, he has identified that the females also shoplifted from other Wal-Green pharmacies in Douglas County.

  • Sheriff's Command Staff Receive Advanced Training through Governor's Office of Highway Safety Grant
    • The Governor's Office of Highway Safety has drawn a line in the sand when it comes to highway safety issues in Georgia. Initiatives known as: Over the Limit, Under Arrest, Click it or Ticket, Driving Skills for Life, Operation Rolling Thunder, and HEAT are all part of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety mission: to educate the public on highway safety issues and facilitate the implementation of programs that reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities on Georgia roadways.
    • Traffic crashes are a leading cause of injury and death in Georgia and as such a major public health problem. Statistics show that (1) one out of three crashes is alcohol related, (2) nearly half of all crash victims do not wear seatbelts, and (3) teens make up 14% of all crash deaths. The tragic loss of Georgians to traffic crashes devastates families both emotionally and financially and imposes far-reaching societal cost to employees and government agencies as well as public and private insurers.
    • Highway safety is a major concern for Georgia's sheriffs' offices. Sheriff Phil Miller is committed to continuing and enhancing the collective effort at reducing these injuries and tragic deaths. In the past, limited funds were a barrier in providing specialized highway safety enforcement training for sheriffs and their command staff statewide, until the Governor's Office of Highway Safety partnered with the Georgia Sheriffs' Association to provide advanced and specialized training for deputy sheriffs as well as a forum for discussion and information exchange between sheriffs and their command staff.
    • A Governor's Office of Highway Safety grant provided an important educational opportunity at the Georgia Sheriffs' Association 2011 Command Staff Training Conference. Three days of intensive training was conducted at Lake Lanier Island, April 12-14, for the upper-level command staff of sheriffs' offices from throughout the state. More than 160 officers – including sheriffs, chief deputies, and top-level command officers – participated in the training conference. Chief Deputy Stan Copeland, Captain Jeff Nalley and Captain Tim Pounds attended and received valuable training and information emphasizing highway safety and leadership training.
    • "The Command Staff Training Conference offers an opportunity for the leadership within sheriffs' offices to attain specialized training on highway safety, leadership development and current trends in Georgia, and to develop partnering relationships statewide," stated Tonia Welch, Training Director of the Georgia Sheriffs' Association, Inc.
    • "The Governor's Office of Highway Safety is proud of our long-standing partnership with the Georgia Sheriffs' Association and the sheriffs of our state. The command staff training is another example of the professionalism of the sheriffs and law enforcement leaders who lead their respective forces. The citizens of Georgia are well served by these dedicated public servants," stated Harris Blackwood, Director of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
    • The Georgia Sheriffs' Association, Inc. is a professional organization that represents Georgia's 159 elected sheriffs. The Association relies on the support of more than 70,000 Honorary Members throughout the state who recognize and value the services provided by the Constitutional Office of Sheriff. In addition to the valuable services that the Association offers to statewide law enforcement initiatives, GSA also sponsors the Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes, Inc. which provides full-time residential care for Georgia's abused, abandoned, and neglected children.

    • We are experiencing an increase of theft of copper wiring statewide and here in Douglas County. On 04-20-11, Jonathan Ulrich and Joel Austin Payne were arrested for the theft of a spool of copper cable. Sgt.

  • Douglas County Sheriff's Office - Employees of the Year
    • Jail Employee of the Year - Matthew Vaughn
      • Matthew has been employed with us for less than two years. In that length of time, he has only called out sick one time. Early on he distinguished himself as a take charge type person who displayed the character traits of an excellent employee. He has demonstrated a high degree of loyalty and trustworthiness and because of this he was given the responsibility of training new employees. Although this has effectively made his job more difficult and time consuming, he has never asked for anything in return. He is now scheduled to go to Field Training Officer School in June so that we can compensate him for his performance. Matthew teaches martial arts in his off-time and has competed in several tournaments. These tournaments frequently take place on days after he has worked all night but he still manages to come to work that night. In his short tenure, he has earned the respect of his co-workers and supervisors. He is frequently called upon to answer employee's questions and concerns without calling on his supervisors. He has been referred to as a supervisor's dream employee. We are very proud of Matthew and the job he has done for us.
        ~ Lieutenant Robert Collett
    • Law Enforcement Employee of the Year - Matt Gray
      • Matt Gray has been with us, all told about 8 years. He left us once to work for the State then came back and left again to work with the D.A.'s Office. He came back to us, again, in January of 2010. This time we made him sign a life time contract. Since he came back in 2010, he has distinguished himself as one of the hardest working investigators we have. He has twice been selected as C.I.D. Employee of the month. Matt has the distinguished reputation of having the most cases cleared by arrest in C.I.D. He polices the old fashioned way; by getting out, beating the pavement, and knocking on doors. He is always willing to assist other investigators if the need arises. Matt has never complained about his assignments, whether it's a background investigation, petty theft, domestic, or an armed robbery. He works each case with the same diligence and perseverance. Matt Gray has been described as a supervisor's dream because he does his job well and he always treats people with the utmost respect. We are extremely proud that Matt finally got his head together and came back to us.
        ~ Lieutenant Jamie Harrell
    • Civilian Employee of the Year - Mrs. Barbara Sonderegger
      • Miss Bobbie has been with us for 6 years. She started out working in Records then moved into the position of C.I.D. Secretary. Excellence in performance is something that we all strive for, but for Miss Bobbie it is a piece of cake. She is one of those rare and precious people that actually work hard every minute of every day. On top of her routine daily assignment,s she is frequently given special tasks with strict deadlines and she always comes through. I do not believe you can inundate her with too much work. Her computer skills are extraordinary and she will quickly accept extra work to assist the Investigators. On her yearly performance evaluation no one, in her chain of command, could find anything negative to say about her performance. Miss Bobbie is the epitome of an excellent employee and her attitude and performance reflects great credit upon her and this agency. We are very fortunate to have Miss Bobbie working with us.

  • National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week - April 10 - 16
    • Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. It was first conceived by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County (CA) Sheriff's office in 1981 and was observed only at that agency for three years. Members of the Virginia and North Carolina chapters of the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) became involved in the mid-1980s. By the early 1990s, the national APCO organization convinced Congress of the need for a formal proclamation. Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) introduced what became H.J. Res. 284 to create "National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week." According to Congressional procedure, it was introduced twice more in 1993 and 1994, and then became permanent, without the need for yearly introduction. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office employs 20 full-time Communications Officers within the Uniform Division. They are charged with handling the incoming emergency and non-emergency phone lines for the Sheriff's Office; are the central communications hub for all radio communications with the deputies, provide Georgia Criminal Information Center (GCIC) / National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) data entry services, and provide customer service directly to the public. Out of all of our Communications Officers: 18 work in the Communications Center, 2 work in the Gammill Building Lobby, and 1 works at the Lithia Springs Precinct. For 2010, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Communications staff answered approximately 248,579 phone calls, dispatched 64,632 calls to the deputies, logged 30,057 traffic stops, provided customer service to 6,262 walk-ins, and entered 4,445 warrants onto GCIC/NCIC.
