Public Information

A critical part of Forsyth County Sheriff's Office’s mission is effective communication with county residents, employers, journalists and other stakeholders. Primary responsibility for this falls to the Public Information Unit, which uses media releases, a robust website and social media to deliver and receive timely information. The Public Information Unit is led by DFC Doug Rainwater and Amy Thompson.
