Beloved Covington Police Captain Who Served for More than 40 Years Dies at Age 81 – WSB-TV Channel 2

COVINGTON, Ga. – A beloved metro Atlanta police captain who served for more than 40 years died Monday, the Covington Police Department announced.

The Covington Police Department announced the death of former Captain Barney Anglin, who was hired by the department in 1969 and served until 2010.

“I remember when I was 18, I started working for the Covington Police Department. From the day I walked in the door, Captain Anglin always treated me like I was one of his own children. But then again, that’s how he treated all of us,” said Covington Police Chief Philip Bradford.
