Welcome Spring – Message from the Sheriff
As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We celebrate 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:
Wear your seat belts. Obey speed limits. Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods. Don't text while driving. Make sure children are in the correct car seat.
For many more driving safety tips, please visit the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration at: www.nhtsa.gov/Driving+Safety.
Thank you for keeping our roads and our citizens safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The website, www.GrenadaCountySheriff.org, provides updated information on all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office.
The new website will serve as an information resource for the public and assist with community policing efforts.The Grenada County Sheriff’s Office launched a new website on 10-8-2014 where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Sheriff’s Office as well as locate area sex offenders.
The new Website features press releases and messages from Sheriff Alton Strider, which are updated frequently, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff’s Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.
Other features of the Website include:
Mobile App - allows for viewing features in a format suitable for cell phones or other mobile devices.
History of the Sheriffs – allows us to share photographs and biographies of our former sheriffs with the community. Our hope is to work with our historical society and the families within our communities to provide facts about our County’s Law Enforcement history. We invite and encourage anyone with historical information to please contact the Sheriff’s Office.
Most Wanted Listings – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.

This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. The new website provides greater transparency for the Sheriff’s Office and encourages the public to take a more active role in community policing efforts. Our intent is for every County resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to locate sex offenders, how to submit a crime tip and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff’s Office.
