Paulding Sheriff’s Response to COVID-19
Paulding County, GA. At the recommendation of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and President Donald Trump, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office is taking steps to ensure the wellness and safety of our employees, citizens, and inmates. With that being said, Sheriff Gary Gulledge announced today that several changes to our internal policy and procedures will occur to help maintain a safe and healthy environment at the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office.
The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and Jail will be closed to the public until further notice. The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office will continue to respond to all emergency calls for service and will still operate our Jail. If you need to file a non-emergency report, please contact the Paulding E-911 non-emergency line at (770) 445-2117 and a Deputy will contact you back to take your report over the telephone. Our Jail will function as normal to include the intake and bonding processes. Although we will cease any on-site inmate video visitation, we will be offering one free off-site video visitation per week for each inmate.
