A deputy with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has died while attending a training academy in North Georgia.

On Thursday evening, the sheriff’s office announced that 29-year-old deputy Spencer Englett suffered a traumatic medical event and collapsed during his first day of training at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Pickens County.

A release from the sheriff’s office states that Englett was rushed to Piedmont Mountainside Medical Center in Jasper, but was unable to be revived by medical staff and first responders.

Englett had served with the sheriff’s office since May 1, 2017. He had previously worked for the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office and was recently married.

“He was an exemplary deputy who served Forsyth County with distinction and honor,” the release said.
