On behalf of the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, I am proud to welcome you to our official website. We offer this site to help families of inmates navigate the visitation system, as well as understand the range of clinical and support services we offer all individuals sentenced to our care. Our website will also keep you up to date on recent and upcoming Sheriff's Office activities; provide you with an overview of the services we offer to the community; and inform you on how public safety in the county is enhanced through our collaboration with other local agencies.

We provide information on our divisions and operations so that the taxpayers and citizens of Franklin County can understand the work we do and the positive impact this Office has on every community in the county.

On this site you can explore career opportunities at the Sheriff's Office and apply for a job by using the downloadable employment application. Most importantly, you have the opportunity to learn about your Sheriff's Office and the important role our Officers and staff play in creating a safer, more secure Franklin County.

Here at the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, we are committed to protecting and serving all of Franklin County.
