Camden County's new sheriff right to give some deputies their walking papers. WHEN A law enforcement officer swears to uphold Georgia's laws, that officer must be willing to live up to that oath, even if it ...

Mr. Gregory does not know a rotten apple if he smells one. Some of those people he had never spoken to; knows nothing of their work ethics; nothing of their moral beliefs and apparently did not even give those people the opportunity to speak for themselves. Some of those people worked hard for the county taxpayers and would have continued to do so. They simply got caught up in the game of politics. By the way, Mr. Gregory, from some of your moves lately, I am not sure if you understand the rules.

Someone has their thinking cap on.I agree with you 100%.There were several people he fired that he never even spoke a word to.You are right and I hope he understands those rules...the rat trap can be tight.

I totally agree with you too. How can the Sheriff replace some of these people that have impecable records. He knows of their records that is true but fired anyway? I think he continues to hand out favors just like Bill. One example I will post, replacing two people in the warrants division(both with impecable records I might add) with a complete idiot whom I doubt even knows what a warrant looks like... She started her new job today, replacing two workers I remind you and her top priority was to literally "Clean the Office" where she is to work. What the hell kinda Law Enforcement place you running Sheriff Gregory.

From where I stand, looks as if you dont even live in this county? And no I didn't get fired from the Warrants division. Maybe you should read someone's entire comment before defending Tommy. If you actually know who did work in warrants you would know that they had no problems with their employment record. Why don't you do your home work???? Sounds like you will be working for the new sheriff...Good Luck with your new job.

I still own property in the county, therefore I still pay county taxes and I can have all the say so that I want to. I do not have to read any comment about Tommy. I have known Tommy for several years, he is a great person... Maybe the person in warrants did not have any employement problems on their record, due to the playing their cards right with the elite group. And no I do not have a job at the office. But, I sure did my politicing for our NEW SHERIFF TOMMY!!!

I just wish that Tommy Gregory could answer why he is giving some people in sheriff's office a raise and the others nothing. And why did he fire people that would have worked for him just like they did bill but he put the people he wanted in there and is paying them the same thing that bill was paying his people. I mean how much does his Secretary (Gregory’s) make and how much does the new records clerk make??? I think she might make the same thing the old one did? Can anyone help clear this up? Is seems like he is going after peoples pay that might have supported the real sheriff...

Maybe she cleaned the office because there was MOLD on the ceiling and walls......not to mention the 6 inches of dust......
Would you want to work in an office like that?
I didn't think so.

Obviously it looks like someone with an "impecable" record did not keep an "impecable" office. Ha.

Maybe Tommy will hire the landscaping man in woodbine. He's a rotten apple as well.

The most rotten of all is Gregory! He had the inmates set up and clean up for the Lions club this weekend at the crawfish festival. He won't let them keep our cemetarys ready for a funeral when one our loved residents passes, but let some potential votes call and he'll sell himself and us out in a heart beat.
