In addition to the main Sheriff's Office and jail facility located in the city of Eatonton, the sheriff has two precincts located in the unincorporated areas of Putnam County. One is in the Lake Sinclair area, and the other is in the Lake Oconee area. These precincts are fully equipped offices where deputies can meet the public or carry out other duties without having to return to the main office from their assigned patrol areas.

These facilities are not constantly manned. There is a phone at the front door of both precincts that will immediately connect you with our 911 center.



Lake Oconee Precinct
610 Old Phoenix Rd NE

Eatonton, GA 31024

(706) 485-4420


The Lake Oconee Precinct was constructed in October 2000. Sheriff Sills constructed, furnished and equipped this facility at no cost to the taxpayers, using funds seized from criminals.



Lake Sinclair Precinct
1053 Milledgeville Rd SE Eatonton, GA 31024

(706) 485-3014



The Lake Sinclair Precinct was opened in April 2007. This facility was constructed and paid for by The Peoples Bank, who purposefully designed and erected this building for use as a sheriff's office precinct and has most graciously provided it at no cost whatsoever to the county. The roof of this building was donated by Skyline Construction Services. Sheriff Sills acquired all of the furnishings, equipment and radios for the precinct using seizure funds.
