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 Department.
The men and women of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office are committed to the protection of life and property among the citizens of the county, and are committed to providing law enforcement, corrections, and criminal justice services through a partnership with the community that builds trust, reduces crime, creates a safe environment, and enhances the quality of life.
With integrity, compassion, and courage we serve our communities... protecting life and property, being diligent and professional in our acts and deeds, always holding ourselves and each other accountable for our actions, while respecting the dignity and right of all.
Like all law enforcement agencies in Tennessee, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office is required to commit and provide to the citizens a law enforcement agency that delivers the highest quality of professional services to its community. To receive accreditation, the sheriff's office must meet certain nationally recognized standards.
Putnam County Sheriff's Office is accredited by the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police sanctioned Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (TLEA)
