MILTON, Ga.--Three new patrol officers will soon be protecting the City of Milton.
"We've hired three new experienced officers to replace three who recently left our department," Community Outreach Officer Ara Baronian said.
Officers Nicholas Norton, Courtney Spriggs and Coleman Sproles will be finished with training in September.
Before accepting the position with Milton, Norton spent a year as a deputy with the Dawson County Sheriff's Office.
Spriggs worked as patrol and with the criminal investigation division for the Lumpkin County Sheriff's Office. She was a community relations officer and most recently a Public Information Officer for the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office prior to taking the position with Milton.
Sproles graduated with a degree in criminology from Auburn University and served with the Alabama National Guard. He spent two years with the Savannah Chatham Metro Police Department prior taking the position with Milton.
"The department is proud to have Norton, Spriggs and Sproles on board," Baronian said. "Their experience will be a great contribution to the continued success of the department."
