WANTED:  The following individuals are wanted by the Pickens County Sheriff's Office.  If you have any information concerning their whereabouts please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 205-367-2000.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

And, one more scam has appeared on Facebook. Unknown people are sending note to Facebook members stating they have US Grant money available to them, however, the person receiving the grant needs to provide funds so the IRS will release the Fed Ex delivery truck to bring the grant checks to them.

 

Another scam is when unknown persons are calling residents of Pickens County and offering to provide solutions to computer problems you may be having with Microsoft software.  They will get into your computer remotely and that will give them full access to all your personal information.  Do not allow this to take place.

 

 

Scammers are going door to door asking for financial assistance to help with funeral expenses for a relative, or, for repairing a broken down automobile. Please do not give to anyone you do not know and cannot verify there intentions.
