Today’s Sheriff’s Office is much different than the Sheriff’s Office of years gone by. As our county has grown, so has the size of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. With over 450 dedicated employees, the Anderson County sheriff’s Office is one of the largest such agencies in the State of South Carolina.
Today’s Sheriff’s Office also has taken on far more responsibility than the Sheriff’s Office of just a few decades ago. Besides the primary function of Law Enforcement, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office also operates the County Detention Center, County Emergency Management, Building and Court Security, Animal Control, and a number of other vital functions for the citizens of Anderson County, including the Unified "State-of-the-Art" E-911 Center that dispaches all Sheriff, most Police calls for municipalties, all county fire, and all EMS calls in Anderson County.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is organized with a number of Bureaus, Divisions, and Units. These Bureaus, Division, and Units effectively divide the work of the Sheriff’s Office under a staff of Chief Deputies, Majors, and Captains. Along with these sub-groups of the Sheriff’s Office, there are also a number of highly trained special teams.
