About Us

The Sheriff’s Office has served Carter County for more than 200 years. This institution has seen the presidency of George Washington, survived the Civil War, and continued to enforce the laws of the county throughout every period of United States history.

Our role today is no different. We aim to be the premier law enforcement agency in Tennessee, and to lead our community through innovation with integrity. We will bring justice to the guilty, protect the innocent, and show compassion to those who are in need of help.
