Law Enforcement in Cherokee County

Cherokee County has two organizations when it comes to law enforcement: A Sheriff's office and a Marshal's office. Both organizations are unique and it is important to understand agency roles so you can connect with the right person.

Cherokee County Marshal's Office Logo

Marshal's Office

Who's in charge?

The Chief Marshal is Jamie Gianfala - he is selected by the County Manager and approved by the Board of Commissioners

What does this office do?

The Cherokee County Marshal's Office is not a traditional law enforcement agency. Although it provides support to other law enforcement agencies within Cherokee County, emergency services are not a primary function of this agency. The Code Enforcement Unit provides enforcement of county ordinances and Georgia state law. They also provide security to other county operated departments when necessary. The Animal Control Unit enforces county ordinances and state laws as they relate to domestic animals.
