DeKalb Sheriff traveling to Turkey

DeKalb County Sheriff Tom Brown will be among several local elected officials to travel later this summer to Turkey for a joint fellowship.

The group will visit various government and religious sites in Turkey. Brown will focus on exploring the country’s judicial system and political perspective.

Brown had previously traveled to Israel to study that country’s law enforcement and military efforts. He will pay for the fellowship, with some funds coming from the sponsoring group, the Istanbul Center.
