Be prepared for the upcoming storm that will have an impact on Gaston County.  According to the forecast, strong winds and heavy rain.  The forecast changes so make sure you are ready for whatever comes our way but most of all be SAFE!  Do not forget about your pets, friends and neighbors.  Visit this site: ReadyNC for additional information from the State.

***SCAM ALERT*** We DO NOT call persons by phone and tell them to pay us money using prepaid cards so the Sheriff’s Office can dismiss any warrants due to you not showing up for jury duty or any other circumstances.  Regardless of what you are being told by phone, we do not conduct business that way.  BEWARE of any phone calls asking for money over the phone.

*Visit us on Facebook for upcoming community events

 *We have added a new service called “Safe Child Exchange.” A deputy is on site from 3:30pm to 8:30pm each day in our lower back parking lot (Walnut Ave).  The area is marked with yellow paint.  No appointment necessary.

*The month of August 2018, 5 Law Enforcement Officers and Two K9’s were killed or died in the line of duty for the United States of America.

*That brings the 8-month total of Law Enforcement Officers killed for the year to 98.
