As Sheriff of DeKalb County it is always my desire to make our office more accessible to our citizens. Our new website is an effort to increase the amount of information you can get about our programs, services, and events we are involved in. DeKalb County is a mostly rural county, rich in traditions, tourism, and family oriented events. We see people from all over the world come to our beautiful area and we would like to invite you to give us a look for yourself.

Our office is dedicated to providing the best customer service we can. The public is our customer base and we strive daily to make everyone feel like we care about your problem and want to help. This website will introduce you to our staff, show you our facilities, and explain some of our operations. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your interest and wish you well in the future.

Sheriff Jimmy Harris
