There is no doubt there are four fine candidates for sheriff, but please watch the video of the sheriff's forum and debate.

Look at the comparison sheet of qualifications. After researching this election, Jimmy Callaway has stood out as the superior candidate. He is a police chief of Morrow n Clayton County, has several criminal justice degrees including graduate level studies and is the president of the Georgia Gang Investigators Association.

He would create a special CAGE – Coweta Anti-Gang Enforcement – unit with a full-time enforcement team with detectives, analysts, and K-9 units. A “287 (g) Delegation of Immigration Authority” will be established for the County to deter illegal immigration crimes. School safety would be enhanced with additional School Resource Officer programs such as a “Guardian” program and a Reserve Deputy program.

He will employ technological innovations to deter crime and Six Sigma processes for continuous improvements. Jimmy has a unique skill set urgently needed for Coweta County now to take the sheriff's department to a superior level that is needed to address our explosive growth.

“Status Quo is a No Go” for Coweta County. Stop accepting crime in Coweta County, and vote for Jimmy Callaway.
