Welcome Spring – Message from the Sheriff


As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we at the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We celebrate these good times in our community.

 

If our officers – including our reserve officers – can help with traffic control or security monitoring at special events, please call us well in advance of a scheduled event. If at all possible, we will help provide coverage for your special events.

 

We also want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:

 

  • Wear your seat belts.
  • Obey speed limits.
  • Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
  • Don't text while driving.
  • Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

 

For many more driving safety tips, please visit the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration at: www.nhtsa.gov/road-safety.

 

Thank you for keeping our roads and our citizens’ safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!

 

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris
