The critical and timely service of protective and domestic violence orders is of the highest priority and the responsibility of the Graves County Sheriff’s Deputies.

Auto Inspections

Kentucky State Law requires all vehicles purchased in another state to be inspected by the Sheriff in the County where the vehicle is to be licensed.  The inspection is intended to insure that the vehicle is road worthy and can be operated safely.


The Graves County Sheriff’s Office receives court orders directing the Sheriff to evict people from their residential or commercial property or to seize items of personal property to satisfy delinquent debt.

Court Security

The Graves County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the security of all courts as well as common areas in the County Courthouse.  Additionally, Sheriff’s Deputies handle the movement and transportation of prisoners scheduled for court appearances.

Concealed Deadly Weapons

With the passing of House Bill 40, qualified Kentucky residents are allowed to conceal and carry deadly weapons as of October 1, 1996.  The Kentucky State Police are in charge of issuing a Concealed Carry Permit to carry a Concealed Weapon.  The Graves County Sheriff’s Office’s job is to  take an application for a permit from a Graves County resident and verify their completion certificate of the required training from a qualified training instructor along with the payment of necessary fees and take a photograph of the applicant and forward that to the Kentucky State Police.  Then in approximately 3 – 5 weeks when the KSP issue a permit they notify the applicant via mail and the applicant can pick up their permit in our office during normal business hours.
