Rebuilding Relationships Together
The memory of children can propel them into their future. For Floyd Scott, the future was to be a part of something great with the hope of helping others. "Shop With A Cop" is a Nationwide Program where the community comes together with their local law enforcement to help bring hope for children and their families during Christmas. Being a recipient of this program as a small child, Floyd saw police officers helping from the time he was a young child. When Floyd was a teenager, an officer spoke with the young adults with dignity and respect; it left a lasting impression. It was in those moments that he experienced as a young child and then again as a teen, Floyd knew he wanted to be a cop and give back.
The U.S. Military allowed Floyd to serve proudly and with honor. Floyd continued serving citizens and the community that he loved when he joined the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office in 1996. As part of the original SWAT Team at the Sheriff's Office in 1997, Floyd continued to grow professionally, sharpening his skills and committed to develop himself and lead the team around him. Never losing sight of what captivated his heart leading him into law enforcement, Floyd would continue the work of giving back to the community through programs like "Shop With A Cop," and the "Wounded Warrior Project."
In 2001, Floyd left the Sheriff's Office and became a Gwinnett County Police Officer where he continued to excel in the law enforcement arena. For the next six years, Floyd was part of the SWAT Team, the Park Police and also worked in Investigations until transferring back to the Sheriff's Office in 2007. During his time at the Sheriff's Office, Floyd was promoted and moved through the ranks to Lieutenant. Committed to professional growth, Floyd continued to advance in his education and knowledge through attendance and training at SWAT School, Fire Arms Instructor School, Basic, and Advanced Jailor School. His continuing education includes Intermediate and Advanced Certificates in Supervisory and Management Certificates, as well as, graduating from the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia, and completing several leadership classes from John C. Maxwell School of Leadership.
Having served in law enforcement for over 40 years, Floyd has been a resident of Gwinnett County for over 24 years where he resides with his wife and family.
