About Us

Welcome to GuilfordCountySheriff.com

Fellow Citizens, it is a honor and privilege to serve Guilford County. As your Sheriff I proudly lead the best men and women in law enforcement. Our goal is to keep your family safe by upholding the constitution and laws of this country. We take our job seriously and perform it well.

Your Sheriff’s Office has received State and National Awards and is recognized as a law enforcement leader. Our motto “Simply the Best” is a standard, not a goal.

I ask you to assist us by being part of our team. We seek and appreciate citizen input and welcome constructive suggestions. As you look through this web site you may see opportunities to help or areas we might improve, please help us by letting us know.

Thank You,

Sheriff BJ Barnes
