Banks County Sheriff's Office Releases Statement

At present, a suspect is being questioned by school and law enforcement officials. The school system is functioning as usual, while law enforcement will always remain vigilant and on high alert while protecting Banks County's most precious asset, our children.
The Banks County Sheriff's Office and the Banks County Education System cooperate in providing all students with a safe learning environment. The Banks County Sheriff's Office policy is to enforce the laws protecting our children to the fullest extent, up to long-term incarceration of those found guilty. Please take this time to reinform your children that violence or threats of violence will not be tolerated.
We thank the community's continued support in helping us in our efforts to make Banks County a great place to live and work!
