These inmates do a lot of public work for the county, from mowing & weed eating, unloading commodities Neighborhood Service Center, various jobs for nonprofit organizations, and trash pick up.

- 03.17.2020 – The Unicoi County Sheriff Department has assigned two deputies to pick up essential grocery items and medications for those in Unicoi County who are in the “High Risk” category, when it comes to COVID- 19. This service will be from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM , M-F. This service will begin tomorrow 03-18-2020. As part of our ongoing commitment to serve our county, I have expanded our Public Service roll of my department. We realize that several of our elderly fall into the “High Risk “ category, and may have difficulties getting out to retrieve essential items. In light of the Presidential Declaration of National Emergency in response to the possibility of the COVID – 19 virus hitting our area, I have decided to offer the citizens of Unicoi County limited delivery of essential medicines and necessary grocery items. I have made arrangements with local businesses listed below to take orders & payments over the phone . Starting Wednesday March 18 , 2020, officers will pick up and deliver medications from local pharmacies, and small orders from local grocery stores here in our county. We ask that the items be prepaid prior to the officers picking them up. You will also need to let the pharmacy know that an officer will be picking up the medicines for you. Due to manpower, we can only offer pick ups at local pharmacies 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM M-F. Unfortunately, our officers will not be able to give rides. This service will include deliveries only. As expected, emergency calls for service will come first and foremost. If someone you know are in the “High Risk “ category and needs assistance, please contact the Unicoi County Sheriff’s Office between 8:30AM -4:30 PM at 423-743-1864 and we will arrange to get your items to you.
