The Hall County Sheriff's Office North Hall and South Hall precincts are among the public facilities in Gainesville and Hall County that are closed to the public until further notice.
A posting on the department's Facebook page states "Hall County Sheriff’s Deputies are continuing normal service to the public as the county, state, and nation deal with COVID-19, but the agency is taking an added precaution. Until further notice, the Sheriff’s Office North Precinct on Dean Street in Clermont and South Precinct on Cody Drive in Flowery Branch will not be open for public foot traffic/visits."
The posting goes on to say that enforcement and other Sheriff’s Office work is operating as usual out of both facilities.
"Residents who have administrative business with the Sheriff’s Office may contact Headquarters at (770) 531-6900."
The department has issued a reminder that some minor incidents can be reported online through Sheriff to Citizen. https://hallcounty.policetocitizen.com/ReportIncident but cautions that, as always, social media should not be used to report an incident or request a deputy for assistance.
For non-emergencies, notify Hall County Dispatch at (770) 536-8812.
