Sheriff Overton would like to remind all residents and visitors of Franklin County that we have a "Safe Exchange Zone" in our parking lot. This area is located directly behind the Franklin County Jail and to the right of the Courthouse main entry doors.

The "Safe Exchange Zone" was implemented in August 2016 to allow a safe area for our residents and visitors to conduct child custody exchanges, face to face online sales, and any meeting where one feels the need for recorded video surveillance.

The three dedicated parking spaces painted in bright blue are under 24-hour recorded and live video surveillance.
