Madison County Sheriff's Office - 1436 Highway 98 West - Danielsville, Georgia 30633 - 706 795-6202 - Fax: 706 795-2999
The primary function of the Administrative Division of the Madison County Sheriff’s office is to provide support services to the Sheriff as well as all other divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. This division consists of not only the Sheriff, but also his Chief Deputy and Executive Assistant as well as two Administrative Assistants. Another primary function they are tasked with is preparing a budget for presentment for approval to the Board of Commissioners, operating within the prescribed budget, processing timesheets for submission to the payroll department, ordering of supplies, duty gear, uniforms, etc, and maintaining Sheriff’s Accounts. This division is located at 1436 Hwy 98 West in Danielsville and is open Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A part of the Administrative Division is the Records Section which is responsible for maintaining accurate records on all incident reports, accident reports, supplemental reports, and civil service documents. The staff of this section is also responsible for entering data from these reports/documents into our records management system, and for entering and maintaining copies of all Uniform Traffic Citations. This section also acts as a liason between the Sheriff’s Office and Jail Division and different courts in Madison County and the media. Statistical Data for the Sheriff’s Office is also maintained by the Records Section.
In addition to providing support services internally, and maintaining records/statistics, the Administrative Division also interacts routinely with our citizens, courts, prosecutors, and local businesses, assisting with reports and giving other assistance as requested. For example, they are tasked with complying with Open Records Requests and processing requests to restrict arrest records. On average, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office receives three to five open records requests per week. In accordance with O.C.G.A. § 50-18-70 through 50-18-76, the Sheriff’s Office must respond to each of these requests within three business days. Although we cannot require open records requests to be in writing, we do request these in writing to ensure that the information sought is properly researched.
