Message from Sheriff Jordan Powell


As I have said from the beginning my first priority when I took office as Sheriff of Pickens County was keeping the citizens safe. And as your Sheriff I think it is important that each of you are made aware that on Tuesday January 31, 2023 approximately 400 inmates 3 of which have direct ties to Pickens County will be getting released from the Department of Corrections. The inmates getting released back into our communities have been convicted of murder, possession of child pornography, as well as rape and other violent crimes.The Pickens County Sheriff Office plans to work with each agency to continue protecting each citizen of Pickens County! As always reach out to Your Sheriff's Office if you have questions or tips involving crimes in your areas!
