From this point forward, this website will be dedicated to providing resources to the Hall County community related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be updated on a regular basis.
My fellow citizens,
As a nation we are experiencing unprecedented times in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. As your Sheriff, I wanted to take a few moments to reassure you the Hall County Sheriff’s Office is “On-Duty” 24/7 ready, willing, and able to serve our community each and every day.
Now more than ever it’s important to focus on the opening line of the Sheriff’s Office Mission Statement:
“The men and women of the Hall County Sheriff’s Office are dedicated to the protection of all we serve.”
As I write, our staff members remain dedicated to you, the public, and will continue to do so. I can assure you that when you call for law enforcement assistance, we will respond. It’s the calling we answered when we took the oath.
I would also like to make a request of you. Please pray for our deputies and all first responders as they leave the safety of their homes and families to protect and serve you during this time. I would also implore you to follow safety guidelines and requests from health officials to help curb the spread of COVID-19. If you can stay home, please stay home!
Additionally, I ask for your patience and cooperation as we all work through this. The Sheriff’s Office has already made adjustments to protect employees and the public at our facilities. Limit your trips to any facilities to a strictly as-needed basis. Moving forward, we will work diligently to provide you with the latest information when it comes to the status of administrative openings and closings at our buildings.
While the next several weeks and months will continue to be both challenging and difficult, I know we are a strong and caring community that will rise to meet the challenge together.
Sheriff Gerald Couch
