Sheriff 2015

Message from the Sheriff



Dear Citizens,

It is my honor and pleasure to serve you as Sheriff.

As the Constitutionally-Elected Chief Law Enforcement Officer of Floyd County, it is my job to respond to the needs of our citizens and provide them with the safety and security they need in these trying times.

I have devoted my professional career to protecting my community, my state and my country. The Constitution of the United States of America is the document that our rights and freedoms are based upon.

In 1985 I took the Oath to support and defend the Constitution and I have renewed that oath regularly over the years. With the ever increasing threat of terrorism, that oath has more meaning than ever before for the American law enforcement officer.

The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office has 149 dedicated employees that work tirelessly, 24-7, to provide for you the taxpayer, the most responsive, professional agency possible.

YOUR Floyd County Sheriff’s Office has received National Accreditation honors ranking it among the top 3% in the nation among law enforcement agencies. That’s something to be proud of, and we are!  Your Floyd County Sheriff’s Office is among the “Elite.”

Your Sheriff’s Office is also committed to our community by providing many pro-active, preventative and educational programs for our youth and seniors.

Welcome to our website, look around and see what the sheriff’s office has been doing and always know that we work for you the taxpayer. You are our valued customer and we will always strive to be a positive influence in our community.

Your Sheriff,
Tim Burkhalter
