Losing Officers: due to the incumbent lack of leadership. We are losing deputies at a
rate that exceeds the pace at which vacancies can be filled.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office is currently grappling with a concerning trend
as it faces the loss of officers at a dangerous rate.

The departure of law enforcement professionals is a critical issue that demands
immediate attention. This alarming attrition rate raises questions about the work
environment, morale, and potential challenges within the Sheriff’s Office.

The consequences of losing experienced officers extend beyond the immediate
personnel shortage, impacting the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the law
enforcement agency.

Addressing the root causes of this concerning trend, such as improving working
conditions, providing adequate support, and implementing retention strategies, is
essential to ensure the continuity and strength of the Fulton County Sheriff’s
Office in fulfilling its crucial role in maintaining public safety.

Swift and decisive action is needed to understand and mitigate the factors
contributing to the departure of officers, thereby safeguarding the stability and
effectiveness of the law enforcement team in serving the community.

Joyce Farmer prioritizes officer well-being, mental health support, professional
development, and fair compensation to boost retention rates. We can foster a
resilient, satisfied, and dedicated workforce by offering stress relief and mental
health resources.

Joyce Farmer is dedicated to engaging the community to promote careers in law
enforcement. We can attract a diverse pool of qualified candidates by partnering
with local institutions and organizations and implementing outreach programs. We
will offer competitive compensation packages to make the Fulton County Sheriff’s
Office an appealing workplace for skilled individuals.
