Pickens County Sheriff's Office and Jail has entered a new construction phase and parking around the Sheriff's Office will be limited.  Anyone coming for inmate visitation is asked to use the public parking lot behind the Pizza Doctor.  Designated "Handicap Parking" is available directly in front of the Sheriff's Office.


Pickens County Sheriff’s Office asks Pickens County residents to call 911 immediately whenever they see suspicious vehicles or people in your communities.


A scam sweeping Pickens County now is for unknown person(s) to call a residence, and identify themselves as working with the Internal Revenue Service and then demanding the resident purchase a green dot money card and give them the account number to pay an “outstanding” debt to the IRS.  These persons become belligerent and threaten to come to the home within minutes with local police to arrest them if they do not make the payment as demanded.  Please do NOT cooperate with these people.


Yet another scam is when an unknown person calls and offers to install a free security system in exchange for placing a advertising sign in the yard. Do not exchange information with these unknown persons.  Speak only with persons you have requested to speak with and persons you have verified yourself.


Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is actively seeking applicants for the position of Corrections Officer. Please stop by the Sheriff’s Office for an application.


Another ugly scam is that unknown persons approach your home and say they need money for a broken down vehicle, or to provide a funeral for a deceased relative.  These are scams, please do not fall prey to these people.
