Welcome to the official website of the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office.  As we continuously seek

out new ways to enhance the public’s accessibility to our office and assorted services, this site

has been designed with our citizens in mind.  It is my desire to improve our ability to reach the

public using technology to increase the speed, accuracy, and availability of law enforcement

data that is so vital in today's information driven world.

 

With 102 years of service to the citizens of Crisp County, the men and women of our county-wide,

full-service law-enforcement agency strive to fulfill our constitutional duties and our public safety

mission, while improving the quality of life for those living, working in, and visiting Crisp County.

Throughout Crisp County our deputies continue to execute their duties more effectively and

efficiently than ever before.  

 

The Sheriff’s Office is proud of the alliance we have established with citizens, businesses,

community organizations, government leaders, and our fellow law enforcement agencies.  Our

collaborative efforts are central to fighting crime in our community.  In the past 12 months criminal

arrests have continued to increase.

 

Our office has grown to 57 deputies, 21 detention officers, 14 communications officers and another 6

civilians who are committed to providing superior service to our citizens of Crisp County.   I assure you

that we will remain focused on our core purpose to seek justice, preserve peace, and improve the quality

of life for all by providing exceptional law-enforcement services.

 

As the 11th Sheriff to serve Crisp County, it is my distinct honor and privilege to lead a sheriff’s office that

is highly visible and proactive while delivering a personal level of professional services to the citizens we

are sworn to protect.

 

Sincerely,

 

Sheriff Billy Hancock

Two weeks ago, I stood shoulder to shoulder with State Agencies and others who warned about the tragedies of drunk driving. This weekend an alleged drunk driver has taken the life of a member of our community. The Crisp County Sheriff’s Office mourns with our brother and friend Sgt. Al Thompson (husband), former employee Monica Belcher Irwin (sister), and other members of Marci’s family in this sudden and tragic loss. We want to thank all of you who have sent your words of kindness, encouragement, and prayers. We ask that you continue to keep Sgt. Thompson and all the family in your prayers in the days to come.                                                                                                                                                                                                -  Sheriff Billy Hancock

 

Law Enforcement believes someone knows who is responsible for the recent armed robberies in Cordele. We are asking for anyone with information to step forward.  The Crisp County Sheriff’s office has teamed up with Cordele Police Department in offering a combined $7, 000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of person(s) responsible for these robberies.

 
 

90% of drowning victims were not wearing a life vest.

Every 2 ½ hours someone is injured or killed in a boating accident.

Alcohol contributes to 17% of boating deaths.

Crisp County Sheriff’s Office urges everyone to strive to beat these statistics, and stay safe on Lake Blackshear this summer.

#boatresponsibly

 

As part of the Summer ’17 Safety Tour Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety gathered at Lake Blackshear to deliver messages of safety alongside multiple local agencies. Crisp County Sheriff’s Office joined Georgia DNR, Georgia State Patrol, and GOHS in partnership to ensure safety on the highways and waterways this summer. #arrivealive #wearitGeoriga

“The goal is zero deaths on Georgia roads & waters this holiday weekend.”

-Harris Blackwood, GOHS Director
