A Message from Sheriff Ravenell

In 1772, the first Sheriff was appointed to provide law enforcement protection to the then Orangeburgh District. Over the more than 200 years since William Thomson took office, the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office has progressed into a full service law enforcement agency that encompasses field services, judicial operations, criminal investigations, civil processing, community services, and special operations. We serve 92,501 citizens in a county that spans 1,106 square miles, the second largest geographic county in the state of South Carolina.

I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Orangeburg County and I am elated by the strides we are making to improve this community for all residents, visitors and business owners. This web site provides a wealth of information about our agency and our operations. Please take the time to get to know us and let us know how we can assist you.
