Sheriff Chad McBride and his staff are committed to an open and transparent agency that is accessible to the community.

MyACSO is the Sheriff's Office Community portal where you can get answers to frequently asked questions, provide valuable feedback about your interactions with our agency and learn about events happening in our area.


The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) website provides victims of crime timely and reliable information about offenders.


The service allows individuals to register to receive notifications automatically by phone and email when there is a specific change in the custody status of an offender.


In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, we have added a Sex Offender Registry to our website. The registry will allow you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered Anderson County sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of Anderson County.



If you are a victim of Identity Theft, Forgery, or Financial Transaction Credit Card Fraud and you live in an unincorporated area of Anderson County, call the Sheriff’s Office and file report. You will need a copy of the incident report number should your bank, credit card, or insurance companies need proof of the crime.
