It has been an honor and privilege to have been allowed to serve as your Sheriff. During my term as Sheriff, I have striven to bring the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office up to the standards that the citizens deserve. The establishment of this website is another example of the Sheriff’s Office moving forward and better serving and interacting with our citizens. Through this medium, the public will be able to better track the activities of your Sheriff’s Office.
We will now have the capability to make known to the public, instantaneous alerts that might affect your safety, press releases, and notifications of where registered sex offenders are living within the county. There is also an anonymous tip e-mail available where criminal activity and wanted persons can be reported and the reporting person never has to disclose their identity.
I strongly believe that no Law Enforcement Agency can operate effectively without involvement from the public they serve. It is impossible, no matter how large or small the agency is, to be in all parts of their jurisdiction at once. Myself and the staff at the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office hope that you, the public we serve, will utilize this website to its fullest potential.
David Abston, Sheriff
