Sheriff's office looking for photos for yearbook

by John A. Winters

The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is working on its first yearbook and is asking the public to help provide historical information and photos.

“We would like to find photos and historical information about the early years of the sheriff’s office and jails,” said Donna Rooks, who is spearheading the project for the office.

Rooks said they have already been in contact with Newnan-Coweta Historical Society, which provided copies of everything they had, but are hoping for more material.

“We are especially interested in finding photos of the inside and outside of the old jails, the sheriff’s office and of the sheriff and his deputies, patrol vehicles and any documents from the office,”’ she said. “Any written family history, stories or memories involving any sheriff of Coweta County would also be appreciated.”

Anyone with information or photos can bring them by the sheriff’s office on Greison Trail, or email Rooks directly at drooks@coweta.ga.us . The sheriff’s office needs the information by April 20.
