From the desk of Sheriff Williams

The citizens of Taylor County are my primary concern. Your well-being and safety, have been and always will be the essence of my focus. Therefore it is the mission of the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office to enhance the quality of your life by reducing both crime and the fear of crime throughout Taylor County. As your sheriff, I personally welcome your input and insight on what your needs are as a community and your suggestions on how we can best serve you.

It is the goal of the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office to provide a premium level of service to the citizens of Perry and Taylor County. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to look outside of the box where it pertains to the typical reactive law enforcement role, of protect and serve. We have to be extensions of you, your ideas, values and suggestions as citizens of Taylor County. In this role, the members of Taylor County Sheriff’s Office will improve the quality of life for you and visitors alike.

As a public service agency, we will streamline and remove barriers that are typical of inaccessible bureaucracies. My door has and will always be open to you. We will work with the community in obtaining assistance and resources from other agencies both public and private. We shall provide a public service, and through that endeavor, establish the Sheriff’s Office as a facilitator for quality of life uses- not just as providers of basic law enforcement service. We seek to be more resourceful, imaginative and aggressive in our approach to crime and by doing so, we encourage the public to become an involved partner.

As your sheriff, I have been dedicated to a safe community through professional law enforcement. I personally welcome your input and insight on what your needs are as a community and your suggestions on how we can best serve those needs. If you would like to share information on a crime, neighborhood problem, or any other matter that you feel requires law enforcement attention, please contact us in person or via email at www.taylorcountysherifffl.org. If you would like to contact me personally, please visit my office at the Taylor County Court House, 108 North Jefferson Street, Perry, Florida, or if you wish to call my office, you may do so by calling 850-584-4225.
