The Office of Sheriff originated in England in the 9th and 10th Century, and is the oldest continuing law enforcement unit in history. The expansion of the British Empire brought the Office of Sheriff to the colonies where it evolved into part of the American democratic fabric. The Sheriff’s Office is a full service law enforcement unit throughout the most of the counties/parishes within the United States.


The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office is a full service law enforcement unit that includes patrol, investigations, corrections, tele-communications and civil process. In addition the Sheriff’s Office provides contract law enforcement services to other entities within the county.

DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott is recognized for 45 years of service


Sheriff awarded for 45 years of service

On Tuesday January 15, 2014 the DeKalb County Board proudly recognized Sheriff Roger Scott for a monumental achievement, 45 years of continued service to the citizens of DeKalb County. Sheriff Scott began his service in the Communications Division. In those days the Communications Division was also charged with overseeing the Jail, so in-between taking police calls he was also making rounds in the jail. He was then transferred to the Patrol Division and worked up through the ranks before becoming Sheriff in 1985.
