To the citizens of Carter County,

I want to thank you for electing me as your Sheriff. It is my job to enforce the laws of the county and protect the public safety. I take my responsibilities as the Sheriff seriously and will do my utmost to fulfill them.


It is my goal to make the Carter County Sheriff’s Office the premier law enforcement agency in Tennessee. We are leading the charge toward fundamentally sound, technologically progressive, solutions-driven police work. My deputies and I will continue to push ourselves to improve in our roles as citizens, servants, and protectors.


As my constituents whom I am sworn to protect, I want you to know that I am here for you. If you are in need of help, my door is always open to you.


Sheriff Dexter Lunceford
