Special Deputies Association


Special Deputies are unpaid volunteers who are State certified in accordance with Ohio law and exercise
the same powers of arrest as paid, full-time Deputies. 

Meeting on a monthly basis and performing their duties under the supervision of a full-time deputy, Special Deputies provide an essential role to the Sheriff’s Office. 

Serving the Sheriff’s Office to supplement the regular Deputy force, Special Deputies also assist other entities with events such as fairs, festivals and parades. Proceeds from fundraisers overseen by the Special Deputies are used to purchase equipment used by the Sheriff’s Office.

A new building donated to the Sheriff’s Office by the Special Deputies was utilized during the 2003 Hocking County Fair. The building serves as an office and can be set-up at festivals, fairs, or other areas where a portable office may be needed.

Generous donations from local businesses provided funding for this project. Construction of the building and overseeing of the project was Special Deputy Keith Farmer.
