The Law-Enforcement Oath Of Honor

On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, mycharacter, or the public trust.

I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our action.

I will always uphold the Constitution, my community, and the agency I serve.



 

The Pulaski County Sheriffs Office is dedicated to service to Pulaski County. The duties involved are many and varied. The employees are fully cognizant that they are members of a team. Our team involves every citizen of the county desiring a safe, friendly atmosphere in a community where we can still take an evening stroll in our neighborhoods and feel secure. 

What We Do

Mile Branch Park

There have been considerable improvements made at Mile Branch Park off the lower end of S. Jackson. Many know this area as the old State Park or the COunty Landing.

This area is for the public use however; a FREE permit IS required if you want to have a large gathering of people or occupy the pavillions. This is free but the permit requirement is in place to insure there will be no quarrels concerning who should be there at any given time.

There are a number of local ordinances have been instigated. Read all the signs posted and be aware.

This is a nice spot to get together now so let's all work together to keep it clean, and make it a good place to take you're family. READ the signs posted all over and if you have any questions after that call the Sheriffs Office at 478-783-1521.   ENJOY!

     

Law Enforcement Merger 

Effective July 1st., the Pulaski County Sheriff has consolidated law-enforcement services with the City of Hawkinsville. The Sheriff and staff welcome the former police officers into the "fold" and look forward to a team effort that will lead to improved services in both jurisdictions through more efficiency and ending the duplication of many services. Such has been the nature of having two agencies working independently in the community. There will be difficulties at the outset but team spirit and a cooperative effort from all members will make the transition, though challenging, rewarding in the future.

Many counties are watching what is happening here during what some might describe as an upheaval, but most realize that the consolidation of services is an avenue many are going to have to eventually consider. State and Federal unfunded mandates, litigation, liability and many other factors are going to make it more and more difficult to maintain separate entities performing similar and sometimes identical tasks in smaller counties and even in larger towns and cities. Macon/Bibb are presently studying making some efforts as an example.

Seatbelts & Pickups

Yes I am afraid 'tis true. Effective July 01 we must "buckle up" even in the 'ol pick-em up truck. This was destined to come with the passing of Tom Murphy. But think about it folks. There are just about as many pick ups as cars on Georgia highways. The truth is that an awful lot of lives will be favorably affected by this adjustment in the law.

Buckle up and be safe out there.

Child Restraint in Georgia

Effective July 01, 2011 the child restraint laws in Georgia have been changed.
The Child Restraint Law in Georgia has changed in an attempt at reducing death and serious injury to children 7 & 8 years old. The law previously exempted children over the age of 6 irregardless of other considerations. The law now requires that ahildren under the age of 8 are exempt from requirements that they be placed in a booster seat only if they have achieved a height of 57 inches. In making this height requrement Georgia joins 30 other states in trying to reduce the seriousness of injuries and in many cases death.

Car crashes are still the leading cause of death for children 3- 14 years of age.

Vacation Security Checks

A form is available at the Sheriffs Office requesting extra patrols for persons leaving their residence for an extended period of time. These forms are presently available at the Sheriffs Office at the Courthouse and will be available at the 911 Center on Lumpkin St. very soon.
