PAULDING – Annette Day is establishing a first as an employee with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. Day, who is currently training for a full-time position as road deputy, is the first female to ever serve in that capacity, says Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers.
“She is going to be an excellent deputy,” said Landers. “We are glad to have her as part of our team. We are excited about her potential. She presents a unique opportunity for certain situations. In crimes where we have female victims, they might feel more comfortable.
“We’ve never had the opportunity where someone on staff in her capacity can assist in this way. I can see it being very helpful in situations related to youth. It can also be beneficial in undercover operations where we need a female presence,” continued Landers. “She has a great work ethic. When she comes in the door, she gets right to work. Her field training officer is really pleased with her efforts.”
