Public Affairs

Mission Statement

The mission of the Administration Division is to support the Sheriff's Office in maintaining the integrity of the agency, and to supply the Human Resources services to the men and women of the Sheriff's Office who serve the community. The members of this division take pride in ensuring that the agency meets the standards of the accreditation process through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and the South Carolina Police Accreditation Coalition (SCPAC).

Chaplains -  The Mission of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office Chaplains is to provide guidance, counseling and support to all employees of the Sheriff's Office through a non-condemning effort to promote wholeness both physically, spiritually and emotionally. The Chaplains are also a support for families and victims on crime scenes upon request. The Chaplain program provides support regardless of religious or non-religious beliefs.

Crime Prevention - As communities seek ways to become involved in crime prevention, the Sheriff's Office has seen an increase in the requests for Neighborhood Watch and other safety programs. This unit can provide training on internet safety, personal safety, "stranger danger", senior citizen safety, and many other programs.

Public Affairs - The Public Affairs Office is designed to streamline communication and resources from local law enforcement to the community as whole. The Public Affairs unit serves as a liaison between the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and the citizens of Greenville County to ensure that they are made aware of the services that we provide.

The team also assists with community service initiatives and aids in the enhancement of morale within the Sheriff's Office.  The Public Affairs Office is responsible for developing relationships and programs that include crime, gang, drug prevention and alcohol abuse. Additional duties include the Safe Communities Coalition, maintaining the Sheriff's Office Ride-along Program, and the Citizens Advisory Board.

The Public Affairs unit also works closely with businesses and community leaders to share information with all parties pertaining to the safety and uplifting of the community along with promoting public awareness for community safety initiatives. The Public Affairs Office will monitor the level of satisfaction in the community from their interactions with the Sheriff's Office. If satisfaction levels decline, Public Affairs is tasked with identifying the cause and finding a solution to the issue.
