Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to Hold Pinning Ceremony for Service Members and Veteran Officers

Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 10:00AM, Sheriff Tim Pounds and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will hold a pinning ceremony for veteran officers at the DCSO Complex, located at 8470 Earl D. Lee Blvd., Douglasville, GA 30134.  

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is proud to recognize and honor its brotherhood of service members and veterans with US Military lapel pins. The officers will wear them on their Class A and B uniforms.  There is a total of 77 service members and veterans that serve with the DCSO. These men (and women) have served a combined total of 630 years in military service to our country.   Forty have served in the United States Army; six with the branch of the Navy; 17 with the  Marines;  five with the Air Force; and nine are National Guard veterans.

The Pinning Ceremony will pay tribute to these service members and veterans and honor the Veteran’s Day holiday. The DCSO is blessed, honored, and proud to have these men (and women) serve as officers. Their service to our country and locally is not taken lightly. These men and women have trained and served on the front lines of war and now risk their lives daily to protect and serve the citizens of Douglas County.  Unfortunately, every day, these officers encounter citizen veterans. It is with great hope and anticipation as these great men (and women) are pinned, the small token will also be a unique symbol that helps to bring familiarity and connection during the encounters with their shared brotherhood of Service Members and bridge a gap in the relationship between officers and veteran citizens.   

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to making Douglas County a safe place to work, live and play.
