Message from Sheriff Phelps

As your sheriff, I am charged with the responsibility of enforcing the law, in a fair and impartial manner, in order to help prevent and deter crime. I also have the responsibility to apprehend and detain those who are accused or have been convicted of violating the law.

As your sheriff, I will continue to work with our county supervisors and the county, as well as my staff, to establish a level of service that will effectively provide security and safety, at a reasonable cost, to you as taxpayers. I am proud of the men and women who work for the Panola County Sheriff’s Department. Let us be reminded, that while they work for me, they are also dedicated to you, the citizens of this county. Their main goal is to provide you with the best law enforcement possible. We need your assistance and understanding, so you can keep our county safe and a great place in which to live and raise our families.
