As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we at the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office remember that spring is a great time in our community –many outdoor recreational activities begin, new softball and baseball seasons are in “full swing” and graduation draws near for our students. We enjoy celebrating these good times in our community.

If our officers – including our reserve officers – can help with traffic control or security monitoring at special events, please call us well in advance of a scheduled event. If at all possible, we will help provide coverage for your special events.

We also want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:


  •      Wearing your seat belt.
  •      Obeying the speed limit.
  •      Driving slow near schools and neighborhoods (and explain why this is important)
  •      Not texting or checking social media while driving.
  •      Making sure children are in the correct car seat.
  •      Not throwing trash on the roadways.
