History of the Sheriff's Office- Click photo for more information
Welcome to the History of the Sheriff's Office. The photos shown for former sheriffs of Franklin County are currently the only ones we have available. We have a listing of former sheriffs dating back to 1819 and would love to include additional photos if anyone has some available. If you have old newspaper articles or photos of any former sheriff that you would like to share with us for the website, please contact our office at 256-332-8811. You may keep your originals, we will simply make copies for our use and to share with the Franklin County Archives.
