Mission Statement
The mission of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is to maintain social order within prescribed ethical and constitutional limits, while providing professional law enforcement services. To attain this goal this Agency enforces the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority and the constitutional rights of all persons. This Agency recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens we serve.

This Agency actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to facilitate the maximum use of resources. The directive for each employee of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is to serve the public to the best of their ability. Each member of the Department shall be honest and abide by and uphold the laws of the State of Georgia.

All members of the Department shall keep their private lives unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. A member shall never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendship to influence their decisions. Each member shall enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice, or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

Our pledge is to provide professional, courteous law enforcement while continuing to develop community programs that will grow with our county. To listen to the needs of our citizens and to work to provide services in the most cost effective manner without sacrificing the quality of law enforcement Spalding County should expect and deserve.

The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing quality service around the clock. Citizens can use the online services portal Sheriff2Citizen to search for public safety incidents and arrests, obtain copies of crash reports, and access other useful information. These features are intended to provide convenience and greater ease of use.
