NOBLE DAY AT THE CAPITOL
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office was honored to participate in the 2023 Georgia Chapter of NOBLE (National Organization of Black Law Enforcement) Day at the Capitol. Gathering at the Georgia State Capitol, law enforcement personnel and leaders from across the state enjoyed the opportunity to meet with state legislators. A Georgia Senate Resolution proclaimed January 24th as Georgia Chapter of NOBLE Day at the Capitol. We are grateful for the experience, and remain committed to the NOBLE mission of ensuring equity in the administration of justice, in the provision of public service to call communities.
