Newton County Sheriff’s Deputy Chad Duehring is Zimmer Radio’s law enforcement officer of the week.

Deputy Chad Duehring previously served as a medical specialist in the US Army and has been in law enforcement with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office for 18 years.

Deputy Duehring, a father of two, was nominated by his fiancé Candy and she says that Chad works very hard and always puts the community before himself. After the May 2017 tornado in Newton County he chose to take care of others and help community members before taking care of his own damaged property.

“I would like to honor him for his selflessness and hard work. He spends his time from work helping others and spending time with family. Our girls are blessed to have such a positive role model,” she said.
