The Office of the Sheriff is a full-service law enforcement agency for the County of Franklin and is responsible for ensuring that our residents receive emergency services in a timely and efficient manner. The Office employs 120-125 members, both sworn and non-sworn. We wanted to use this time to highlight how our agency is organized:

Our Patrol Division provides all basic law enforcement services to the county and is made up of about 32 sworn deputies. The calls for service provided vary greatly but do include both violent and non-violent situations, domestic calls, property protection calls, warrant services, motorist assistance, etc.

Our Investigations Division provides investigative services including general, vice/narcotics and special investigations, and is made up of about 13 sworn deputies.

Our Corrections Division provides security for the offenders housed at the Franklin County Jail, and is made up of about 20 sworn deputies. These members are responsible for the care and custody of offenders once they arrive to jail, and while they are awaiting court or release. They also handle the booking of persons who have been arrested. This includes photos, fingerprinting, documentation and record keeping necessary for each intake.

Our Courts Division provides security for all Franklin County Courthouse functions, as well as transportation of offenders from other facilities for court in our jurisdiction. This division is made up of about 15 sworn deputies.

Our Communications, E911 Center dispatches all calls for service for the County of Franklin and is made up of about 20 communications officers. They are responsible for managing all emergency calls for assistance through law enforcement and public safety. This includes calls to the Office of the Sheriff, the Town of Rocky Mount Police Department, Ferrum College Police, Franklin County Public Safety, Virginia State Police, and the Department of Wildlife Resources.

There are 4 full-time School Resource Officers in our local schools.

We have 4 members of the Office of the Sheriff in our Civil Process Division that are responsible for the handling and serving of legal and court documents.

These positions include the: Sheriff, Major, Patrol Captains, Corrections Captain, Professional Standards Captain, Communications Director, Public/Community Relations, Domestic Violence Advocate, Training Coordinator, Property/Evidence Technician, Administrative Services Manager, and our Administrative Assistants.
