Our Sheriff: Gordon Smith

Welcome to the Bradford County Sheriff’s Office Official Web Site. This site introduces you to our office and provides an overview of our services. I sincerely hope you find the information on this website to be helpful and useful as you explore the many services we provide to the public.

Bradford County is a small, rural county located about 45 miles Southwest of Jacksonville, FL and about 25 miles Northeast of Gainesville, FL. We currently serve a population of approximately 30,000. We take pride in our community and our goal is to serve the community with professionalism and integrity. Our sworn and non-sworn members are committed to providing responsive, quality, cost-effective service to the citizens of Bradford County.

I have worked to make our office more informative to the public through the use of technology. To achieve this, we are constantly working to make this website more user-friendly and enlightening. Another one of my goals is to implement a strong community policing effort throughout the county so that we are more visible and responsive to the unique needs of Bradford County.

Together we can continue to keep Bradford County a safe community to live, work, play, worship, and raise a family.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and don’t forget to visit often for the latest information. Respectfully,
