I’m Sandra Gray
and I have been in law enforcement since 1977 when I started out as an
emergency dispatcher. In 1980, I went to
work for the Dade County Sheriff’s Department. There I furthered my civil
service career by attending the Police Academy to become certified as a law
enforcement officer. I have worked for Dade County Sheriff Cubie Steele and
Sheriff Philip Street and also the Chickamauga Police Department and the City
of Trenton Police Department. I am presently a licensed paramedic and EMT for
the state of Georgia and have been serving the City of Trenton and Dade County
in this capacity for the past 30 years.
For the past 35
years, I have been a resident of Dade County, where I raised my two children –
daughter, Tara Konrad and son, Todd Gann.
I have lived in the City of Trenton for 25 years and presently reside at
140 North Pine Street, Trenton.
I have been
Police Commissioner for the past 17 years and have truly enjoyed my position at
the city and feel like we, the City of Trenton, have a very dedicated and
professional department. Our policemen work hard and are very successful in
keeping our city safe. Our records show that we have a very low crime rate and
it makes me proud that I live in a city that we can say that about and I have
been a part of it.
The City of
Trenton Police Department has the most up-to-date equipment, which makes their
jobs more efficient and safer. The patrol cars are equipped with computers and
cameras for the officers to use on their traffic stops, accident calls and
As the Police
Commissioner and also a citizen of Trenton, I am glad to say we are able to
purchase this equipment through SPLOST funds and not the general fund.
I am also proud
of our state-of-the-art firing range, which is available to all surrounding
agencies to use, which helps the City of Trenton.
I want to thank
you, the citizens of Trenton, for allowing me to serve you for the past 17
years, and having the confidence in me that I will do the job to the best of my
ability. I feel fortunate to be involved with the city government, police
department and the community. This would not be possible without the support of
the citizens of Trenton.
I am again
asking for your vote and support on Nov. 5 for Police Commissioner. I would
like to thank you in advance and encourage all to get out and vote.
free to contact me at (423) 316-8182 or come by and talk with me at any time. I
have truly enjoyed talking to many of you during this election time.
