As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sheriff’s Office is actively working on plans to limit exposure of our deputies and the general public.

Effective immediately, we are going to begin handling some calls via telephone. When dispatch receives a call, they will continue to deal with the call following their normal protocols. They will CAD (notate) and dispatch the call to the appropriate unit as usual. It will be the responsibility of the deputy and the on-duty supervisor to evaluate which calls can be handled via telephone. Once a determination is made that it is a “telephone” response, the deputy will make contact with the complainant via phone and provide the appropriate information and complete the proper paperwork.

As a reminder, this is a fluid situation that will be changing daily. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and make adjustments as needed.

 Yellow Dot"Citizens and First Responders Working Together to Preserve the Golden Hour of Emergency Care."

The Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens during automobile accidents when they might not be able to communicate for themselves.

Take Advantage of the free program.

Although the Yellow Dot Program is geared primarily toward senior citizens, anyone may participate.

A Yellow Dot in the rear window of your vehicle will alert all First Responders to the vital information in your glove compartment. This will help to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need during the first "Golden Hour" after a crash or other emergency involving your vehicle.

The Yellow Dot Program is the first of its kind in the State of Alabama. The program is a cooperative effort between local Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Troopers, Emergency Medical Services, local Fire Departments, and Senior Groups to assist our citizens in a time of need when they might not be able to help themselves.


Anyone can join with these four simple steps:

  1. Photo
    • First, a photograph is taken of the participant. The photo is later taped to the front side of the completed information sheet.
  2. Complete the Form
    • Next, complete the form which contains the participant's information; name, address and phone number of person to contact in case of emergency; medical history; allergies; medications and dosage taken; and names of doctors caring for the participant.
  3. Yellow Dot Decal
    • Next, a Yellow Dot is placed in the lower left corner of the rear window of the participant's automobile on the driver's side to alert First Responders that vital medical information can be found in the glove compartment of the vehicle.
  4. Yellow Dot Folder
    • The final step is to place the completed information sheet, with picture attached, into the Yellow Dot folder and then put the folder into the glove box where first responders are trained to look when they see a Yellow Dot in the rear window.
