• Since February 10th, there has been five law enforcement officers that have been shot and killed in the line of duty; two Deputy Sheriffs from Maryland, one Deputy Sheriff from Colorado, one Police Officer from North Dakota, and one Deputy Sheriff (Major) from our own state of Georgia. These brave men in blue will never return home to their friends and families. Always remember, law enforcement officers dedicate their lives to better the communities they serve. We believe we have some of the best here in Gilmer County. Today, our Deputies, Detectives, and Dispatchers are "backing the blue" in support of all of our brothers and sisters who walk the thin blue line and in memory of recent and past fallen officers. #gilmersheriff #BackTheBlue
