The Butler County Sheriff’s Department has made a lot of progress this year. We’ve been able to keep the equipment in good shape, while we wait on four new law enforcement cars, and purchase new vests, body cameras and car equipment for all officers. 

Last year we were able to move out of the Courthouse into our own Sheriff’s building across from the county jail. We now have a 30-foot trailer for law enforcement officers to use during extensive highway accident clean-ups or other investigative situations. Our office also recently purchased a 14-foot boat for river and water investigative search and rescue operations, as well as a new side-by-side utility task vehicle (UTV).

This is my fifth year as Butler County Sheriff. I began my career in 1985 at the Georgiana Police Department, and after three years I joined the Sheriff’s office where I stayed for eight years before coming to Greenville. I was at the Greenville Police Department for 16 years before working eight years with the Alabama Board of Nursing in Montgomery as an investigator on nurse complaints. When I returned to the Greenville Police Department I worked my way up to Captain of Patrol before being elected Sheriff for the first time. This October will mark 37 years working in law enforcement.

The biggest thing I want the Butler County community to know is that we are on their side, and if anything were to happen, we want residents to pick up the phone and call us without worrying that there will be any negative repercussions. I understand a lot of people do not want to get involved, but the public truly is the eyes and ears of law enforcement. The information provided by a resident could turn out to be the pivotal information we’ve been looking for to solve a case. We want to be that trusted friend to community members.

Both the Butler County Sheriff’s Department and the Greenville Police Department work together and ultimately have the same goal in mind – to make sure we have the safest county possible. Sometimes it seems we take two steps forward and then three steps backwards, but we will always keep moving forward with the intention and effort to make life better for everyone that lives in Butler County.
