A Message to the Community from Sheriff Robert Holland

We now have an officer assigned strictly to managing the premises of the Macon County Sheriff's Office. I created this new position because I realize that when you need to speak with an officer one should be readily available to you.

Officer David Underwood will assist you with your needs or point you in the right direction.

This allows my patrol officers to handle their assignments without pulling them from the communities. David Underwood is also responsible for gun permits and various other duties, including making sure I promptly receive messages if I am out of the office.
Sheriff Robert Holland
