The Hall and Dawson County Sheriff's Office are tasked with the protection and security of all employees, judges, and citizens which work in or enter the Courthouse, Government Center, or their associated buildings. Serving and protecting is our number one priority.
The Hall County Sheriff’s Office Court Services Division is under the direction of Captain Kelley Edwards.

In addition to process service, the Court Services Division executes evictions, writs of possession, temporary protective orders and the collection of other judgments issued by the courts.
The Dawson County Sheriff’s Department Court Services Unit is under the direction of Captain Chad White. Captain White oversees a respected and reliable staff which is responsible for not only securing the entry point of the Government Center, but as well as providing security in all courtrooms and during all board meetings.
