Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office News

Congratulations to Paul Corso on his promotion to Lieutenant.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sergeant Corso's retired K9 partner, K9 Rocky. K9 Rocky was a true warrior and will be deeply missed. Please keep Sergeant Corso in your thoughts and prayers.

On July 5th I will be doing a NNDDA certification if anyone needs it let me know and pass it along to anyone that might need it.

The Georgia Department of Corrections confirms that two transport officers were killed when inmates RICKY DUBOSE and DONNIE RUSSELL ROWE escaped custody in the Putnam County area. Ricky Dubose has ties in Gwinnett County. The photos below reflect his recent tattoos. Escapees hijacked a light green Honda Civic bearing GA tag RBJ6601. Please be on the lookout for these individuals and dial 911 immediately if you see them. They are ARMED AND DANGEROUS. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Correction Officers Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue. Their lives are forever changed by this horror and we hope that no further lives are lost as authorities seek to apprehend these violent criminals.

Deputy Cotton Finally completed the K9 Trainers/Handlers course and is now a certifying official for NNDDA in narcotics and patrol.

Tomorrow will complete Master Deputy Cottons third week of dog trainers course and the second weeks for all the handlers in the handlers course. Monday-Saturday with 12 hour days have made for long weeks but we have got a lot of work done and the dogs and handlers are looking great.

This is the newest addition to our K9 Unit. Meet K9 Armo. He will be Master Deputy Cotton's new K9 partner.

We had another great year at certification. Although we did not have our full training group with us this year we still had a great time and the guys won a couple of awards. We couldn't be more proud of these guys they put in the hard work all year at training and it shows.

Thank You to the Gwinnett Police and Dekalb County Police helicopter units for providing the fly over.

Sergeant Corso participated in the auction winning this amazing flag which was handmade by a K-9 officer who lost his canine partner in the line of duty. All of the proceeds from the auction go to We Ride to Provide to purchase first aide kits which they give away to any K9 unit needing them. What a great cause. Big Thank You to Holly Cripps for putting on this event. Once again you done an amazing job honoring the falling K9's.

Thank you to the Lawrenceville Police Honor Guard

Thank you to the Gwinnett County Sheriffs Office Honor Guard.

Sorry but there maybe a change in venue for K-9 Falco's funeral. Will up date as soon as I can

It is with a heavy heart this morning that we they announce the passing of Habersham Sheriffs K-9 Falco. Deputy Thomas and K-9 Falco were part of our training group. K-9 Falco and deputy Thomas's personal dog ( a chocolate lab ) were both in their kennel which was located in the barn. A horse stall that had been fixed as a kennel to keep the dogs warm during the winter. Habersham 911 received a call that deputy Thomas's barn was on fire. Deputy Thomas and his wife had left to go out to eat when he received a phone call from their other K-9 handler (that responded to the call) telling him to return home. Tragically both dogs lost their life's in the fire. Please keep them in your prayers. Funeral arrangements will be announced soon for K-9 Falco.

Deputy Cotton's retired dog turned 16 years old today. He is still getting around good and enjoying his retirement at home.

This is K9 Max. Commerce Police Department's new K9. K9 Max and his handler Officer Holly will start their handles course with us starting the 23rd of this month. At is always fun training new dogs and handlers.

Just cleaned up the Tahoe.
