Welcome to the Union County Sheriff’s Office. I am Billy Breeding, your elected Sheriff. It has been an honor serving you and your family. Throughout my career in law enforcement of twenty seven years, I have strived to follow a few key principles. These principles are: to be fair, to be honest, to lead by example and to treat others the way that I would want to be treated. I believe these principles are the foundation of a trustworthy and reliable Sheriff’s Office. During my two elected terms as your Sheriff I have worked hard to implement or expand programs to better serve you, the citizens of Union County. My staff and I will continue to work to provide a safe Union County for you and your family.
