Our Mission:
     On January 4, 2016 the Georgia Sheriffs' Association and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia began a pro-active law enforcement awareness campaign, simply entitled, "Shake Your Sheriff's Hand."  This is a thank you promotion for Sheriffs, deputies, jailers, and other law enforcement that serves and protects the public daily. Please click HERE for more information regarding this campaign or to make a contribution.
