Congratulations to Delaney Brock, awarded the 11th annual Zachary Williamson Memorial Scholarship. Delaney is a senior graduating this year from North Paulding High Schools Class of 2022 in Paulding County, GA. The Zachary Williamson Memorial Scholarship Fund was developed to honor the memory of Zachary Williamson whose life ended on August 14, 2010, when he was killed in a car accident on Old Cartersville Road in Dallas, GA. Zach was on the NPHS football and wrestling teams and his love for sports and his fellow classmates are the reason his parents Mark and René Williamson established the scholarship fund. Each year, in memory of Zach, a student-athlete at NPHS is recognized with a $1500.00 scholarship to honor the students’ commitment to outstanding character, excellence in the classroom, above-average morals, and dedication to their sport. Delaney Brock is a student with impeccable character who gives her all to everything she does. Delaney will be attending Toccoa Falls in the fall to pursue a degree in Biology/Pre-Med. Congratulations Delaney and good luck to you as you begin this new chapter of your life!
*Donations to the Zachary Williamson Memorial Scholarship Fund can be made to any Truist Bank.

Paulding Sheriff Awarded Homeland Security Grant from GEMA
(Paulding County, GA) On April 13, 2021, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office was the recipient of a grant totaling $301,905 which was obtained from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The grant was disseminated from funds allocated by DHS and FEMA to the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA). The grant money was issued to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office by GEMA for the purchase and acquisition of a Lenco Bearcat G3 armored vehicle.
The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office has been working diligently over the past 20 years to acquire funding to purchase a much-needed armored vehicle. The Sheriff’s Office S.W.A.T. Team provides mutual aid to all of our surrounding counties, especially the ones to our west. With that being said, we have had to rely on authorities in Cobb and Douglas Counties when we needed an armored vehicle in the past.
Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “I cannot thank our partners at GEMA enough. GEMA Director Chris Stallings and GEMA Deputy Director Harlan Proveaux were an integral part of the success of this project. Director Stallings and Deputy Director Proveaux gave crucial guidance, direction, and support to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office on this endeavor. This armored vehicle is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment and will help our Deputies rescue citizens in the event of a terrorist attack, active shooter event, or any violent critical incident. It will also help keep critical infrastructure assets safe not only in Paulding County but in our surrounding counties as well.” Sheriff Gulledge went on to say, “I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Georgia Governor Brian Kemp as well. Without Governor Kemp’s unwavering support of public safety at both the state and local levels in Georgia, grants like this would not be possible. I am so thankful our citizens have this resource available to help keep them safe.”
Our Lenco Bearcat G3 was manufactured in Pittsfield, Massachusetts at the Lenco Armored Vehicles manufacturing facility. The “Bearcat”, as they are commonly referred to, is the industry standard in the law enforcement and military communities when it comes to armored vehicles. Our vehicle began its life as a Ford F-550 four-wheel-drive cab and chassis truck. The vehicle sports a Ford 6.7 Liter turbo diesel engine that is built for anything. With an aggressive stance, off-road capabilities, an upgraded suspension, and a virtually bulletproof exterior, this vehicle is ready for nearly anything that can be thrown at it.
On March 11, 2022, two of our Deputies went to Pittsfield, Massachusetts to tour the Lenco facility and learn all about the new Bearcat. On Monday, March 14, 2022, the Bearcat was delivered to the Sheriff’s Office by Taylor Transport, Inc. Since its arrival, the Bearcat has already helped our Deputies safely deescalate and disarm a violent suspect in a neighboring county. We are so thankful for all of the men and women who put time, energy, and effort into making this project a reality for the citizens of Paulding County and our Deputies.
Paulding Rotary Senior Cookout for 2022
The Paulding Rotary Club has several long-standing traditions when it comes to providing for the local community. One such tradition is our annual senior cookout, which might possibly be the longest-running yearly activity to date. Club members always have a good time grilling our seniors' hamburgers and hot dogs. Rotary members understand the difference a fresh grill-cooked meal can make for a person who doesn’t get the home-cooked opportunity very often.
Over 50 years and still, grilling and prepping the meals is a fun activity for club members. Even with the pandemic circumstances over the past couple of years, club members have still found a way to keep this tradition alive. The management of the WellStar Paulding Nursing Center understands the difference such things make to patients. Additionally, the nurses and staff who have been key to helping get the job done (especially with the new procedures in place) also enjoy the meal.
This year Club members again brought everything to the WellStar Paulding Nursing Center in Dallas. The nurses and staff members took the grilled food and preparations for the residents and distributed the meals. Thank you to all those who participated and helped. You made a big difference in a person's life, and that’s what it is all about.
Paulding Detectives Make Murder Arrest in Recent Residential Fire
(Paulding County, GA) Paulding Detectives, working in conjunction with the Paulding County Fire Department and the State of Georgia Fire Marshal’s Office, arrest Bryan Dwayne Jones (W/M, 51 YOA) for the murder of his mother in relation to a house fire that took place on Friday, April 22, 2022, at approximately 8:26 PM.
On the above date and time, multiple 911 calls were placed to Paulding E-911 referencing the residential structure fire of a mobile home which is located at 3412 Due West Road Dallas, GA 30132. Preliminary information indicated that an elderly female may have been trapped inside the home along with a family pet prior to the fire being ignited.
Unfortunately, once the flames were extinguished, firefighters made the grisly discovery of the elderly female’s body along with the carcass of the deceased family dog. Detectives were able to determine that the deceased elderly female was preliminarily identified as Deborah Jones, (W/F, 72 YOA) who is also the mother of the suspect, Bryan Jones.
Due to the suspicious nature of the incident, combined with the nonsensical statements and actions made by Bryan Jones prior to him fleeing the scene, Detectives took warrants on Mr. Jones for Concealing the Death of Another and Arson. Bryan Jones was subsequently arrested in Cedartown, GA on April 26, 2022 without incident.
As the investigation continued, Detectives had an opportunity to interview Bryan Jones. After that interview, due to the severity that the body was burned, combined with Jones’ erratic statements and behavior, and having consulted with the Paulding County District Attorney’s Office, Detectives officially charged Bryan Jones with the murder of his mother and cruelty to animals on May 19, 2022. Bryan Jones has been charged with the below-listed offenses and is currently being held in the Paulding County Jail without bond.
-Concealing the Death of Another (F)
-Cruelty to Animals (M)
If you have any information about this case, please contact Detectives by calling the Criminal Investigations Division Tip Line at (770) 443-3047 or send a message via the Paulding Sheriff mobile app.
