Deputy Robert P. Lipovsky
Assistant Public Information Officer
As the newest member of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Office, I would like to thank the Administration and Gena Bilbo for affording me this opportunity.
I began with the Sheriff’s Office in January 2012 after retiring from the US Army in late 2011. While serving in the military, I had trained or been stationed in Georgia, Oklahoma and Alaska while deploying to locations like Qatar, Kuwait and Iraq. The military gave me the ability to do and see things I would not have been able to otherwise and instilled in me the desire to serve my country and community.
Since coming to the Sheriff’s Office I have been working in the Corrections Department at the jail. I started with the intake unit where I learned to work a wing and how to interact with the inmates. When the expansion opened, I moved to the new units and continued to work the wings. I then moved to Receiving and Discharge where I learned the procedures involved in booking in new arrestee’s and releasing them. In September of 2014, I graduated from the Police Academy in Garden City and was sworn in as a Deputy Sheriff. July 2015, I took this position as Assistant Public Information Officer and look forward to working with the community, promoting positive relations and supporting our youth.
