"Please explore our website, it is designed to be a source of pertinent information regarding law enforcement issues affecting our County. I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions. Be sure to Contact the Sheriff and let me know how we are doing!" Sheriff Taylor
In response to the many inquiries regarding the recent, tragic events in Connecticut and California, and the ensuing public dialogue concerning “gun control” or “Restrictions”, the forty-six elected Sheriff’s of South Carolina, who are the acknowledged public safety authority within their respective counties, will comply faithfully to their Oath of Office to, “Preserve and Protect and Defend the Constitution of this State and of the United States”.
Further, as constitutional officers of the State of South Carolina and locally elected, our authority to enforce any law extends only to the laws and statues of South Carolina and the ordinances of our respective counties. We do not possess the authority to enforce any federal law or presidential order.
Union County Sheriff, David H. Taylor
