At a ceremony held on Tuesday April 20, 2021, Sergeant Jared Gunter was awarded the “Officer of the Year” award by the Paulding County Rotary Club. Sergeant Gunter was accompanied by Sheriff Gary Gulledge along with his family and supervisors at a luncheon held in his honor.
Sergeant Gunter has been employed with the Sheriff’s Office since 2016 and was recently transferred into the Office of Professional Standards Division (OPS). In the OPS Division he is responsible for recruiting efforts as well as employee processing. Over the past year, Sergeant Gunter has been an instrumental element in several projects at the Sheriff’s Office. One of the main projects he has assisted with was with the transition and implementation of a new Report/Jail Management Software upgrade.
Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “Jared does an excellent job, his work on our RMS/JMS upgrade has been instrumental in the success of that project. He is a hard worker and always strives to make our Sheriff’s Office better”. Sheriff Gulledge further stated, “I would also like to personally thank the Paulding County Rotary Club for continually supporting law enforcement in Paulding County. Without the support of philanthropic organizations like the Paulding County Rotary Club, it would be difficult for us to do our job”.
Congratulations to Sergeant Gunter on a much deserved honor!
