"Earning the Public's Trust Every Day!"
ABOUT THE SHERIFF
I have been blessed to have a long and extraordinary career in my chosen field, law enforcement. I was trained by the F.B.I., the US Justice Department, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

In order to obtain a copy of a police report you'll have to come visit the sheriff's office lobby and talk to the records office to fill out a records request form. After that, the records office will send the form to administration for processing and you will be notified by a member of administration when a copy is ready to pick up.
Vehicle accident reports may also be obtained through the records office, however there is a $5.00 cash fee to obtain a copy of an accident report.
We do not accept check or card.
Yes, we do. Fingerprints are done through Livescan with ink rolled available by request. All fingerprints are done by appointment only Monday-Friday 10am-3pm. To schedule an appointment, call the Sheriff's Office and select the records department.
They are $5.00 per card, EXACT CASH. We do not accept checks or card in our office, and we do not keep change.
We will provide you with a receipt for your personal records or if you need to be reimbursed.
The PCSO partners with Vendengine and City Tele Coin to provide commissary and phone card services to Putnam County Inmates.
There are two kiosks in our main lobby, one to provide commissary money and one to purchase phone cards for inmates. Both machines accept cash or card, but we recommend using cash.
Commissary and phone time can also be maintained online.
For commissary, visit: vendengine.com

Please call the visitation Sergeant to set up a visitation appointment.
Public Parking can be located in the upper lot of the Justice Center but is limited. Additional parking can be found at the corner of Spring Street and Maple.
Parking in lots owned/operated by the surrounding businesses is strongly discouraged and may be subject to being towed at the owner's expense. All Justice Center parking is posted and any unauthorized parking to the contrary is subject to being towed.
You will need to go to the lower parking lot and around to the sally port (the two double garage doors) located on the South side of the Jail.
There you will need to press the button on the door and tell our corrections staff what you are there for and they will get the property to you or let you know when the inmate will be released.
