Delivering Results for Our Community

Welcome to my website! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share a little bit about myself and why I am running for reelection as Sheriff of Floyd County this year.


I come from a family of public servants and was fortunate to grow up in the local law enforcement community. My late father, Lonzo Roberson, had a 40-year career with the Rome Police Department, so my brother and I spent a great deal of time there. We were inspired by so many great leaders throughout our childhood, and it was really never a question that we would one day follow in their footsteps and dedicate our own lives to serving and protecting the people of Floyd County. I started working at the Sheriff’s Office in January of 1995 as a jail officer, and in my 29 years of continuous service, I've worked my way through the ranks and held nearly every job there is. My brother, Brad, is now chief of operations for the Rome-Floyd Fire Department. 

It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as Sheriff of Floyd County since you elected me in 2020, and I have worked very hard to make progress in each of the areas I promised to focus on (which I like to call the 4 Rs): Relationships, Recidivism, Recruitment & Retention of Employees, and Revenue. I look forward to sharing more about our accomplishments in each of these areas throughout the course of my reelection campaign.

I'm very proud of the good work our team has done, but we must continuously strive for improvement and do even more to support our communities. The citizens of Floyd County deserve that. I believe that collaboration, teamwork, and strategic partnerships continue to be the keys to making Floyd County better and safer for all who live here. As a Sheriff’s Office, we can certainly do more, and I look forward to continuing what we've started.


I want to sincerely thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Sheriff for the last three years. I am hopeful that Floyd County voters will see what I've done within our agency and in our community since I took office in 2021 and give me the opportunity to continue this important work by reelecting me in 2024. 

I've always felt that effective leaders need more than just experience — they must be able to connect with, empathize with, motivate, and inspire people to want to do and achieve greater things. Should I have the honor of being reelected, I'll continue to work very hard to serve both my colleagues and the people of Floyd County in this manner.

Feel free to contact me with questions or to discuss the issues that matter most to you. I look forward to sharing more with you soon!
