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 99 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.

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, 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.
