Sex Offender Search and Lookup

Each registered sex offender’s information is recorded on either national or state based sex offender database. All these sex offenders have been charged with either a sex-related crime or a kidnapping crime. Typically, a sex offender is someone who has committed a sex-related crime including rape, molestation, sexual abuse of a minor, and child pornography. A sex-related crime is any illegal act that involves forced sexual conduct against a person. You can locate any sex offender at Whitfield County Jail if you navigate to the following link:

Keep in mind the search result will display the last known addresses or block of the sex offenders where they are currently living on. You have to accept a disclosure to use the database.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is a process in which you have to post the bail money to obtain release from police custody. The bail money is 10% of the total money charged for a criminal offense. The court will review the offense and decide how much money one should pay as charges for the committed crime. If your bail money is too high or if you are going through financial problems, you should get help from a bail and bondsman. A bail and bondsman would post the bail money for you and charge a minimum $100. In some cases, you might end up paying around 10-15% of the total bail money.

Whitfield County Director of Communications

Whitfield County Emergency Management Director Claude Craig has long said, be prepared for the worst and hope for the best.
That philosophy has earned the local agency statewide re-recognition as one of the 2,706 StormReady and/or TsunamiReady sites in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Pacific Islands.
“Being StormReady means that we have taken the time to make sure we have done everything that we can do so that a comprehensive plan is in place and we are prepared when Mother Nature brings severe weather to our area,” Craig said. “It also illustrates the importance of establishing a close working relationship between our local National Weather Service offices, emergency management partners, and ultimately the communities that we serve.”
The announcement of the StormReady designation came in a Feb. 2 letter from David J. Nadler, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service, Peachtree City.
“On behalf of the Georgia StormReady Advisory Board, I would like to congratulate you, and your team, on your jurisdiction’s StormReady re-recognition,” Nadler said. “It is clearly the result of your vision, leadership, hard work, and commitment to the citizens of Whitfield County. They should take great pride and comfort in maintaining this status, and, to a great degree, they have you to thank for it.”
The StormReady re-recognition for Whitfield County will be valid for three years, expiring on Feb. 25, 2021.
StormReady is a National Weather Service program designed to recognize counties that have reached a high level of severe weather preparedness. To be recognized as StormReady, a county must meet criteria established jointly between the NWS and state and local emergency management officials. These criteria include:
 Having a local 24-hour warning point and an Emergency Operations Center.
 Having multiple ways of receiving NWS warnings.
 Being able to monitor local weather/river conditions.
 Having multiple ways of alerting the public.
 Promoting public readiness through community seminars and presentations.
 Having a formal hazardous weather plan.
 Having trained spotters.
 Conducting periodic drills / exercises.
 Interacting with their supporting NWS office.
The essence of the program is to ensure the entire warning system performs properly when severe weather strikes. The “system” is comprised of the NWS (which issues the warnings), local emergency management (which ensures the warnings get communicated), and you (who respond properly to the warnings). When each part of this system performs well, lives and property are saved. StormReady recognizes those counties in which the system is most likely to perform well.
The recognition comes as Whitfield EMA is holding its annual observance of Severe Weather Preparedness Week Feb. 5-9, with a focus on educating the public about thunderstorm, tornado, lightning, and flood safety. Whitfield EMA gave away 100 NOAA weather radios to local residents Monday during an event at the Dalton Public Library.
“Severe weather can be unpredictable and extremely dangerous,” Craig said. “By taking steps to prepare before it strikes, you can ensure that you and your family stay safe. I encourage our residents to implement safety measures at home and at work so they will be ready when severe weather strikes.”

Several North Georgians receive No-Cost-To-Client Flu Shots

NORTH GA – Since health departments in north Georgia began providing flu shots at no cost to clients this week, 640 residents have taken advantage of the offer and others are urged to do the same while supplies last. This number contrasts favorably to the total of 190 flu shots provided by the health departments during the previous week.
Flu activity continues to be widespread in the U.S., and last week, the number of flu-related deaths in Georgia sharply increased, prompting public health departments in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield Counties to begin providing flu shots at no cost to residents who have not yet been vaccinated. Healthcare plans are billed for clients who have coverage and there is no charge to anyone who is not insured. No appointment is necessary – “Walk-ins” are welcome.
The current flu vaccine is highly effective against most influenza strains that are now circulating, and county health departments in north Georgia also have high dose flu vaccine for people ages 65 and older, providing them with increased protection.
It is not too late to get a flu shot. This flu season has not yet peaked and it could last several more weeks. Once vaccinated, it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to reach its full protective potential. Therefore, it is important to receive a flu shot right away.
Locations and phone numbers for the no-cost-to-client flu shots at county health departments in north Georgia are:
Cherokee County Health Department: 1219 Univeter Road, Canton, GA 30115, (770) 345-7371 and 7545 North Main Street, Suite 100, Woodstock, GA 30188, (770) 928-0133
Fannin County Health Department: 95 Ouida Street, Blue Ridge, GA 30513, (706) 632-3023
Gilmer County Health Department: 28 Southside Church Street, Ellijay, GA 30540, (706) 635-4363
Murray County Health Department: 709 Old Dalton-Ellijay Road, Chatsworth, GA 30705, (706) 695-4585
Pickens County Health Department: 60 Health Way, Jasper, GA 30143, (706) 253-2821
Whitfield County Health Department: 800 Professional Boulevard, Dalton, GA 30720, (706) 226-2621
Health officials also remind the public that flu is extremely contagious and can spread easily from person to person; therefore, anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms – such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches, headaches, fatigue or nausea – is urged to stay home during the severest symptoms and for at least 24 hours after fever is gone. Parents should keep children who are sick with the flu at home from school, and anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms should stay away from places such as hospitals and long-term care facilities where people are more at risk for developing severe complications if sick with the flu.

Whitfield EMA, CERT among those who help local organization in its mission to serve less fortunate residents of the area

Whitfield County Director of Communications

What started out as a simple way for a couple to serve God in the 1990s has blossomed into a life-changing and life-saving ministry for the homeless and other less fortunate members of the North Georgia community.

The seed for what has become known as Greater Works was planted 23 years ago when Darlene Hill of Dalton told her husband, Robert, that they needed to do something for the church they were attending. After consulting with their associate pastor, reading a book by Tommy Barnette called “There’s a Miracle in the House,” and much prayer, Darlene “came up with the idea that we would go to the park and serve breakfast to the men in the park,” Robert recalls.

“And you’re gonna go invite them,” Darlene told her husband.

“Well, where are they?” Robert asked her.

“They’re in Dalton Green behind the Krystal,” came her answer.

“Well, how do you know they’re homeless?” Robert continued.

“I just know they are, and you’re going to go invite them,” Darlene said.

So on the first Saturday in June some 23 years ago, Robert and another young man went to the park and met six homeless men and invited them to their church the next morning.

“Four of them took us up on it,” Robert recalled, “and that’s where it all started.”

Today, the ministry has morphed into Greater Works, which serves about 2,500 meals a month to the homeless and gives food to 250 to 300 families a month through their food pantry.

“We serve lunch Monday through Thursday,” Robert says. “We open the center up for them to come in and take showers, do laundry, just kind of get a reprise, if you will, from the cold or the heat four days a week. Then we serve dinner three nights a week – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.”

Nine years ago, Greater Works became an independent 501 (c) 3 organization and rented a building at the old Big Apple behind Advance Auto Parts on South Thornton Avenue.

“Now we have a food pantry, clothing pantry, furniture, and household ministry where we give away things that are given to us,” Robert said. “In fact, I just went and picked up a dryer today that we’ll give to somebody in need. Then we also help with a small amount of rent assistance, a small amount of utility assistance, and prescriptions (we have an optometrist that does eye exams for us, and we take them to the local Walmart and get those filled for glasses).”

Greater Works also teams up with other similar ministries in Whitfield County, places like Compassion House, Family Promise, Providence Ministries, and City of Refuge, among others. “Between the partnerships, we have found we can help folks more than we can do individually,” Robert said.

Most recently, during the extremely cold weather during January, Greater Works – with help from Whitfield County Emergency Management Agency and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) volunteers – provided a warming shelter for dozens of homeless people who might otherwise have frozen to death if left outside.

“We were open for seven nights during that first cold snap in January,” Robert said. “The first night was a Monday night, and we had no one to come that night. But then the next night, I think there were nine people, and by the third night, we were up to 20 to 25. We also fed people three meals a day for that length of time.”

The warming shelter opened up again a few days in mid-January, “and we started off with a bang and ended with a bang,” Robert said. “We borrowed 26 cots from Red Cross through Whitfield Emergency Management, and we had folks sleeping on the floors some nights so we had as many as 27, 28 at one time seeking shelter.”

Greater Works has been providing a warm place for the homeless for years, and Robert says they’ll be ready to help in the coming weeks this winter if the temperatures again make an extreme drop.

“What we want to do is provide a place for them to come when the temperature’s below freezing at night,” he said. “Most of the folks we deal with are on the street – they’re sleeping in tents or cars or whatever. So we try to provide for them a place that they can be safe and warm and at least have some form of shelter.”
Robert serves as director of the organization, but don’t think he’s turned the ministry into a paying job. Like all the other volunteers in Greater Works, he’s donating his time.
“We don’t have any paid staff,” he said. “Everybody in the ministry that works with us is a volunteer – we don’t pay any salaries, we don’t pay anybody to do anything, we rely strictly on volunteers.”
Greater Works, he says, “runs on donations from the public. We work off the generosity of the people of this community. There’s one foundation that more or less underwrites our overhead as far as our rent, utilities, insurance, things like that, which is very helpful, and then the rest of it just comes through folks, the kindness of their hearts to give us resources to supply for people.”
Hill expressed thanks to Whitfield EMA – “otherwise we’d have to go out and buy cots,” he says. “They help us with that, and they do send us CERT volunteers when they have someone willing to volunteer.”
He points out that the food pantry at Greater Works is unusual in that unlike some others, they will help people no matter where they are from.
“If you have a need, you come and see us – Whitfield, Gordon, Catoosa, Murray, or wherever, you can come to our food pantry and we will help you. If you say you need food and we’ll give you food. If you say you need clothing, we’ll give you clothing. If you say you need furniture and we have it, we’ll give you that. That’s kinda what we do.”
Greater Works is also what’s known as a “client’s choice” food pantry.
“We don’t give away a box of food like most food pantries do,” Robert said. “Our clients get to come in and shop and choose for themselves what they desire to eat, and then we put all of it in clean, new grocery bags and send them home just like if they’d been to Kroger or Walmart.”
The community is definitely better off for Darlene and Robert Hill’s desire to help the homeless 23 years ago.
“God provides, okay?” Robert says humbly. “He said in the beginning, if we do what He asks us to do, He would make sure that every need was met – and He has so far for 23 years. And we give Him the honor and the glory for it.”
If you’d like to help Greater Works by donating your time or money, please call Robert Hill at 706-270-2239.
