About Us

Dade County, Georgia Sheriff Ray CrossWelcome from the Sheriff

Hello, welcome to the Dade County Sheriff’s Office Web site.  I am pleased to inform you the citizens of Dade County that we are making great progress with the Sheriff’s Office and are striving to make Dade County a better, safer place to live and raise your families.  Having been in office only a few months, numerous changes have already been made to better serve you.  This web site has been set up to keep the citizens informed about what’s going on in YOUR Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office operates with the revenue from your tax dollars and you are entitled to know how your money is being utilized. From the upkeep of the jail, the security of the courts, to the availability and protection provided by the road officers, you deserve the best law enforcement for your tax dollars and I am doing everything within my power to make that happen.  Every effort is being made to keep spending down while providing you with the best service possible.

In the coming months, you will see more deputies in your neighborhoods especially during the daytime hours; keeping your homes safe while you are at work.  Our drug interdiction team will also be very active on our roadways using every means available to keep our citizens safe and prevent illegal drugs from entering our county.  Our school resource officers will be very present in our schools protecting your children and grandchildren.

As YOUR sheriff, the safety and protection of your families and homes are my first priority and I will work endlessly to accomplish that goal and keep you safe.  I will work closely with our Fire Departments and Medical Services to get help to you promptly when there is an emergency.  Dade County is one of the best counties in Georgia in which to live and raise a family and as Sheriff I will make sure it stays that way.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Sheriff.  If I, or any of my staff, can help you in any way please feel free to contact us at 706-657-3233 or 706-657-DADE.
