OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS - SEX OFFENDER UNIT

    The Spalding County Sheriff's Office performs several duties involving registered sex offenders and sexual predators living and working in Spalding County. People who are convicted of certain crimes are required to register with the Sheriff's Office of the county in which they reside or are employed.
