Sheriff’s Office Mourning Passing of Deputy Killed Tragically on Duty

The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the passing of one of their own who died tragically on Sunday morning.


According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Jamie Reynolds was involved in a single vehicle accident and succumbed to the injuries he received.


Preliminary information indicates that Reynolds was driving on Georgia Highway 16 when a large pine tree fell on his unit. The tree crushed the passenger compartment of the vehicle, killing Reynolds instantly.

Deputies, staff, fire personnel, Georgia State Patrol, and EMS responded to the scene but Reynolds was pronounced dead by Coroner Michael Pryor.

A number of Spalding County Sheriff’s Office and Coweta County Sheriff’s Office personnel assisted with the notification of Reynolds’ wife and children early Sunday morning.

“The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office will be working with Jamie’s family, supporting them, and walking through this with them over the next few days. We will continue to do so from this point forward…Every prayer, call, text, and post is appreciated. We ask that you keep Jamie’s family and his extended Spalding county Sheriff’s Office family in your prayers in the coming days as well,” Sheriff Darrell Dix said.

Public Information Officer Major Dewayne Jones said Reynolds began his career in law enforcement in 1995 and joined the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office in January 2021. His most recent assignment was in the Office of Professional Standards working with State Certification, National Accreditation, and grant writing. He also worked weekend shifts in the county jail.

“He was a great guy who loved his family, had a deep faith, and always brought you solutions, not problems.”
