Halifax County Sheriff's Office

Halifax County has an estimated population of 52,300 residents. Furthermore, thousands of people pass through our county each day utilizing one of the major state highways or I-95. Halifax County ranks 43rd in NC for traffic-related fatalities, 38th in speed-related deaths, and 35th in unrestrained fatalities.

Our office has worked hard to build a stronger relationship with the community. This shift in our law enforcement efforts has meant a reduction in working proactive patrols as they relate to traffic enforcement. Making the county safer is a priority, and this includes our roadways. The numbers above are alarming.

The purpose of the S.T.E.P. program is to assist the Sheriff’s Office in:

  • Reducing fatalities,
  • Increasing seat belt usage, and
  • Identifying and prosecuting alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.
