The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Administrative and District Offices will be closed Thursday, November 28, and Friday, November 29, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The offices will reopen on Monday, December 2, for normal scheduled hours.

There will be no change in County Jail visitation hours. Urgent media requests during the holiday can be directed to the Watch Commander at 941-639-0013.

The Sheriff’s Office encourages everyone to enjoy the holiday weekend safely. If you are drinking alcohol, that means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation. As a reminder, the AAA Tow to Go program is operating throughout the holiday. If plans for a designated driver fail, this free ride home is available by calling 1-855-2-TOW-2-GO (1-855-286-9246).
