What should I do if I am stopped by a law enforcement officer while driving my car?

Understand that the random traffic stop is statistically the most dangerous duty performed by uniformed officers.

Slow down and pull to the right of the roadway or into the nearest side street as soon as is safely possible. Turn off your engine. If the stop occurs at night, turn on your interior lights. If you have tinted windows, roll the windows down so that the approaching officer may make a safety evaluation as he approaches your vehicle. Place your hands on the steering wheel and avoid making any fast motions.

Stay in your vehicle unless directed to exit your vehicle by the officer.

Start the process to have a charge expunged from my record or find out if the charge is eligible for expungment?

You will need to apply with the Solicitors Office in the county of the arrest(s) for an expungment order. They will be able to help you with your question.

Learn more about the Explorer Program?

The Pickens County Explorer Post 138 has been in existence for several decades and has become an extremely successful program that serves to mentor the youth within our local communities. The program is designed to function under the joint guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America(B.S.A.) and the Sheriff's Office. The purpose of this program is to promote social, recreational and community relations activities for Explorers in addition to the training and educational opportunities they receive in law enforcement.

The Explorer Program targets adolescents and young adults from fourteen to twenty years of age. Explorers meet on a weekly basis and they are required to maintain passing grades in order to remain active with the Post. The training they receive in general law enforcement also prepares them for annual competitions held during the summer months.

The Explorer Program is often the pathway for the children of today to become professional law enforcement officers of tomorrow.

Additional questions concerning the program should be directed to:
