Open Public Records Request

The Pickens Sheriff’s Office is a government agency and that most of our actions are available for public review. We are dedicated to processing all open records requests received in writing in a timely manner. Much of the information provided to you on this web site is designed to allow you easy and quick access to public information. Individuals and attorneys wishing to obtain information concerning a case where an individual is awaiting trial may be required to do so by contacting the Pickens County Clerk of Superior Court and filing appropriate discovery motions.

Those wishing to obtain records or information under Georgia’s Open Records law should make their request in writing. These requests should contain specific information about the information requested, dates and times, a contact number and name to contact with questions, a return address, and the appropriate Georgia or Federal Public Information or Record Law that you are applying for the information under. Depending on the type of information requested, you might incur certain charges. If this is the case, we will contact you prior to your request being processed.

Anyone having any questions or needing additional information concerning open records, should contact Tina Tidwell by phone at (706) 253-8971, email: or fax (706) 253-8913.
