A local chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives is endorsing Capt. Scott Peebles in the Richmond County sheriff’s race.
David Hannah, the president of NOBLE Georgia Chapter – Region 7, said it had chosen to back Peebles “after a careful review of the qualifications, experience, education and candiadte platforms,” according to a news release Monday.
The organization cited Peebles’ desire to seek national accreditation for the sheriff’s office and his intention to use data collection and analysis to help reduce crime.
NOBLE is a national organization based in Virginia with 59 chapters in six regions throughout the United States.
