A message from sheriff kenneth henderson
I am proud to be your Sheriff and look forward to serving the people of Towns County. I have been in law enforcement for over 38 years and most recently I served as the Police Chief of the Young Harris College. As your Sheriff, I will work hard to make towns County a county we can be proud of, where our streets and communities are safe and where you as a citizen can be free from the fear of crime.
I will accomplish this by working tirelessly to rid our country of illegal drugs. I will require additional mental health training for our deputies so they are equipped to recognize and understand both mental health and substance abuse issues. I have created a "Drug Hotline" that citizens can use to report illegal drug activities anonymously by either phone or through the DRUG/CRIME TIPS section on this website. I will also commit to ensuring that our School Resource Officers (SRO's) provide alcohol awareness and prevention education for our young people.
Additionally, I will double the training hours of our deputies from a 20 hour minimum (Mandated by the State of Georgia) to 40 hours. We will actively train together with other local law enforcement agencies and with Towns County Fire, EMS, 911 and Towns County Schools to ensure that we are ready to handle any emergency that may come our way, including active shooter situations. I will facilitate a quarterly meeting of Public Safety Officials to discuss issues, current events and other topics that specifically relate to the safety of our citizens.
It is an honor to be your newly elected Sheriff and I look forward to meeting each of you in the next four years.
