Lieutenant Darvin Couch
Lieutenant Darvin Couch began his career in 1994 as a detention officer with the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office. He became a road officer and eventually worked up to the rank of Lieutenant in 2004. In 2005, Lieutenant Couch assumed the role of supervisor for the School Resource Officer Program which is a detached unit of the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the Fannin County School System.
During his service he has received certification in several areas of school related incidents. His responsibilities include overseeing the safety of the faculty and staff, upkeep of the Emergency Operation Procedures, member of the Safe Team Committee, work with principals on any law enforcement issues that arise.
Darvin is not only a School Recourse Officer. He has taken on several admirable titles. We are honored to say he has been called upon by the Georgia Sheriff’s Association to help assist and administer oversight for the CHAMPS Program in Sheriffs offices statewide. “CHAMPS” is designed to encourage youth in selecting healthy activities and methods promoting safety. He is also involved at the Mountain Education Charter School supporting our younger generation to stay on track to graduate. He strives to see our children and youth succeed and we are thankful for such a zealous leader.
