Corporal Dwayne Fabian, a retiring Georgia State Trooper, is formally announcing his candidacy for Clayton County Sheriff at a media conference and supporter briefing, on Thursday, April 7, 2016, 11:00 a.m., the Soul Delicious Buffet and Grill at 1375 Mt Zion Rd, Morrow, GA 30260
Fabian, a 30-year veteran of law enforcement, says he wants to restore a positive image to the Clayton County Sheriff’s office, graduated from Bradwell Institute in Hinesville, GA in 1982. Born and bred in Holmestown, Georgia, Fabian began his career in Law Enforcement in Savannah, serving at the Savannah Police Department from 1985- 1992.
The Clayton County Sheriff candidate remarked, “For too long, Clayton County has been the butt of jokes — people suggest that living in Clayton is like being in the ‘Wild, Wild West’, where you can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys. It’s time for a change. We need to restore mutual trust and respect between the Sheriff’s office and the public. The Citizens of Clayton deserve to be able to stick their chests out with pride, when talking about their Sheriff, not bow their heads in shame. The bottom line is that a sheriff must not only talk the talk but walk the walk as a professional who is accountable, has integrity, and treats each citizen fairly.”
Fabian further emphasized that “the Sheriff is the highest ranking law enforcement official in the county and has to be a good example. I can do that. I spent the last 15 years at the Forest Park State Patrol’s office, answering calls, participating in arrests, assisting at accidents, and protecting the roadways to make driving safer. This means I’m experienced, qualified, willing, and fit to serve the citizens of Clayton.”
The former Georgia
State patrolman was assigned to Post 47 in Forest Park, GA in 2001, which covers Clayton, Fulton, and DeKalb Counties. Fabian started in this position as Trooper First Class, and continued his advancement in law enforcement with promotions to Senior Trooper in 2003 and Assistant Post Commander (Corporal) in 2007. In 2010, Fabian was appointed Acting Post Commander, until the position was filled in 2014.
While assigned to Forest Park, Fabian received a 2013 award from The U.S. Customs and Border Protection for his participation and cooperation in the movement and transport of sensitive enforcement technology equipment. Prior to that, in 2000, Fabian received training for National Inter-agency Incident Management System (NIIMS) Incident Command System i-200 (modules 2-6), which was presented by The United States Coast Guard, earning him a Meritorious Award for recovering thousands of dollars in drug money during traffic stops.
