Experienced leadership dedicated to delivering consistent results for Henry County residents.
Brian McGee retired as captain from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office after 28 years of dedicated and progressive law enforcement service.
Honorably discharged as Sergeant with the United States Army, Brian McGee began his career as a Deputy Sheriff with the Fulton County’s Sheriff’s Office in Atlanta the fall of 1993. His determination and passion for law-enforcement shown through. Within a very short period of time Brian McGee had become a fugitive investigator – investigating and apprehending subjects wanted for murder, rape, aggravated assault, and other high profile offenses within Georgia and neighboring states.
Through skills gained, McGee was offered a position with the Federal Protective Services as a Special Operations Officer. In this role, McGee supervised over 200 security guards, forged partnerships with local and state law enforcement agencies to conduct security risk assessments and reduce crime in and around federally owned properties and facilities throughout seven states – identifying waste, fraud and abuse.
In June 2001, Brian McGee returned to the Fulton County’s Sheriff’s Office as Community Outreach Commander where he oversaw the development of partnerships with community partners, civic and faith based organizations to bridge the gap between citizens and law enforcement.
Within this role, McGee created and established the Youth Intervention Program for at-risk youth (featured on A&E’s Beyond Scared Straight), the Teen Talk Series (addressing issues facing adolescents), developed the Life Learning Skills Program for youth offenders incarcerated at the Fulton County Jail, and served as trainer and instructor for the Gang Resistance Education and Training Program – whose mission is to reduce gang and drug activity amongst middle and high school students. McGee also implemented programming aimed at educating senior citizens how to protect themselves against scams, frauds and social security theft, facilitated monthly meetings between the Sheriff’s Office and community leaders, and established a Fulton County’s Gun Buy Back Program.
Skilled in community outreach, investigation, crime prevention, and operations, McGee understands the value of strategic planning and how it can effectively build a strong foundation of fiscal responsibility and community partnerships.
As Captain with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, McGee led both the Field Operations Division (commanded the daily operations of five of the busiest detention facilities in metro Atlanta within the Fulton County Jail System – managing 180 officers and personnel overseeing the safety and security of more than 3,000 inmates) and the Grievance and Investigations Unit where under his guidance, absenteeism within that department decreased by 46% - improving employee morale.
