Sheriff Ron H. Freeman

Welcome to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office website. We have made every effort to make this website an easy portal to answer your questions, view crime maps, file an online report, request an extra patrol or traffic complaint, or link to our other social media presence.

As your Sheriff, it is my sworn duty to provide law enforcement services, manage the jail, provide security of the courts and to serve the writs and papers of the courts. The Office of the Sheriff is a constitutional office and reports directly to you our citizens and not to the County government. Forsyth County has the 4th largest full service Sheriff’s Office in Georgia. With an overall strength of 436 employees, the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office stand ready to insure that Forsyth County remains a safe place for our citizens and visitors. We operate out of 4 primary locations, our South Precinct located at South Forsyth High School, our North Precinct, located at Central Park off of exit 17, our Adult Detention Center at 202 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, and our Headquarters located at 100 E. Courthouse Square in downtown Cumming.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded voluntary certification by the Georgia Chiefs of Police Association. We will be undergoing an assessment to become a nationally accredited agency via the Commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies later this fall. This will place us as one of very few agencies who can reach this accreditation milestone.

As an agency we are committed to providing exceptional service and safety. Our citizens expect and deserve the best law enforcement service we can offer. We have identified core values at the Sheriff’s Office which drive our actions and service delivery. Our core values are fundamental convictions and beliefs that we hold so firmly that they cannot be altered by circumstances. Our values serve as our ethical compass in making decisions and taking actions. We refer to these values as the:

"Forsyth County Way"

  • Integrity Counts
  • Service Matters
  • Excellence Is Our Goal
  • We Are Here To Serve Our Community
  • We Approach Crime Proactively
  • We Treat People Consistently And Fairly
  • We Are Innovative In Our Service

Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance.



Sheriff, Forsyth County
