Barnwell Police Officer Makes History

Detective Tarter becomes the first woman to hold the investigative title in Barnwell.

Augusta, GA – History has been made in Barnwell.  The Barnwell City Police Department was established in 1919 with no female officers ever having been promoted since. That changed when Police Chief Reuben Black promoted the first female officer, Diane Miles Tarter, in the history of the department on January 4, 2016.  Tarter is now Detective/Investigator Tarter.
