BARTOW COUNTY, GEORGIA – A former police officer who has career ties to Cartersville Police Department as well as the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office has turned himself in to deputies on several warrants, including child molestation, taken for his arrest.
Bartow County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Sgt. Jonathan Rogers confirmed James Scott’s surrender to deputies Monday when approximately five warrants were served against him.
Scott, according to CPD Public Information Officer Lt. Mark Camp, “worked for several departments, including the Cartersville Police Department, Bartow County Sheriff’s Office, Dallas Police Department and the Kennesaw Police Department.” He served with CPD from July 1997 until September 2011.
A request for Scott’s personnel file from CPD was delayed Monday until the department’s employee who manages such files returns to the office to process the request sent by The Daily Tribune News on Monday afternoon.
