New Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum made several staff changes during her first few days in office, including naming Daniel Thomas as chief deputy and Clayton Lowe as jail commander.
Major Thomas, who retired from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation after 30 years and also worked with the Georgia State Patrol, replaces David Cochran as chief deputy. Cochran has been reassigned as a lieutenant in the jail division.
Capt. Lowe, who served as sheriff of Madison County for 12 years and worked for the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, replaces David Savage as jail commander. Savage has been reassigned to the patrol division.
