Hello and welcome to Lanier County!


As Chief Law Enforcement of Lanier County and your Sheriff, I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for choosing Lanier County to live and raise your family. I believe that family is everything and you’ll soon discover, under this new administration, we help families in any way possible. Lanier County Sheriff’s Office offers many services to back this statement such as special patrols, intense patrols, neighborhood watches, and the ruthless pursuit of drug dealers and traffickers just to mention a few. We pride ourselves as one of the most aggressive Sheriff’s Offices in South Georgia against drugs and take a zero tolerance approach.  I feel this zero tolerance approach provides you as parents the peace of mind needed to focus on work, school activities and home life.


As your sheriff I am and will remain one of the most accessible sheriffs in all of Georgia working with my officers as much as 14 to 16 hours everyday… even weekends and holidays. Please take comfort in knowing that your Sheriff’s Office is doing everything possible, with resources available, to make your stay in Lanier County, regardless of how long, one of the best experiences you’ll ever have. Hopefully, you’ll like it here as we do and stay a lifetime!


Please feel free to contact us at any time! We’re here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
