Message from Sheriff Fairbanks:

Thank you for visiting our website.  My management philosophy is God, Family and Career, for it is my belief that nothing can be accomplished without His divine blessing. God therefore is first in my life.  Family comes second, for without support and love of our families we are not complete.  Then Career, because without a goal in life and ambition to do more, we cannot support our families.  The men and women of the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office stand ready to serve you, and I am proud to be your Sheriff.
