Thankgiving Message From the Sheriff

Sheriff Brad Delay 


As this Thanksgiving season approaches, I am reminded how fortunate I am to serve with such an outstanding group of people. The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office deputies and administrative support staff are dedicated, hard working, and committed to serving the citizens of our County. I encourage you to give them a friendly smile or a kind word to let them know you appreciate them as much as I do. I am truly fortunate to have them by my side.


Like all law enforcement officers, I am thankful for the support of my family and friends. I appreciate their patience and understanding for all the times I’m called out in the middle of dinner or the middle of the night.


I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the residents of Lawrence County. Your efforts to enhance safety and cooperation with our office helps make our County a great place to live and work. I am thankful for the assistance you provide through the crime tips hotline, website, and in person. I sincerely appreciate your commitment to the safety of our community.


My commitment to the citizens of Lawrence County has never been stronger. I will continue to work with you to improve the quality of life for each resident we serve. The support you’ve shown to me and the entire Sheriff’s Office during this past year has been overwhelming.


As many of us are fortunate to be able to spend this time with our families, let us not forget those who cannot be home with us this season and will miss the family gatherings. To the men and women who serve our communities and those who are serving our country, a special Thank You! You are not forgotten.




Happy Thanksgiving!


Sheriff Brad A. DeLay
