Former Griffin PD officer arrested for violation of oath of office, theft by deception


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) has arrested a former officer of the Griffin Police Department on charges of theft by deception and violation of oath by a public officer.

Asia Jones, age 26, of Hampton, was arrested in connection with a GBI investigation requested June 17, 2022, by the GPD.

The GBI was asked to investigate allegations that while serving as a Griffin Police Department officer, Jones falsified timecard information pertaining to a part-time job.

Preliminary information indicates Jones, while employed as a GPD officer was scheduled to work a part-time law enforcement job at a local apartment complex. Jones allegedly submitted timecard information claiming hours worked that she had not worked.

Jones resigned from the Griffin Police Department following a June 2022 internal investigation into these allegations.

After her arrest, Jones was booked into the Spalding County Jail.

This investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the GBI Region 2 Office at 706.565.7888. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling 800.597.TIPS (8477), online at or by downloading the See Something, Send Something mobile app.

Once the investigation is complete, the case file will be given to the Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
