Sheriff Hobart Lewis

"Our Greenville County Community,

I am delighted to serve you as the Sheriff of Greenville County. While our office continues to evolve with technology and other law enforcement advancements, our mission remains the same; to protect life and property while upholding the highest standard of service to the people of Greenville County.

I am so proud to lead the men and women of this agency and firmly believe that we have the best deputies and civilian support staff in the State. I have always preached that law enforcement is a joint effort that takes the community's help by communicating information so that our office can effectively protect and serve you and your family.

Our deputies are here to serve you and will uphold the sworn oath to do so blindly, justly and fairly to ensure our community remains safe and secure in the greatest county in the State of South Carolina. If I can ever be of assistance to you, please don't hesitate to give me a call. My door always remains open."
