Sheriff Ernie Coleman

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is the principle law enforcement agency for Beaufort County North Carolina. Sheriff Ernie Coleman and his staff of dedicated professionals provide law enforcement services to all of Beaufort County’s residents.

Proudly serving the communities of:

As of 3/11/20, the Beaufort County Detention Center will be implementing the following procedures to better safeguard the health and welfare of inmates and staff:

  1. All regular visitation and special visits are cancelled.
  2. All attorney visits are cancelled. Attorneys may call the jail to schedule a phone call with their client. We will make every effort to accommodate all requests, however space and staffing are limited.

We understand this may present a hardship on all involved, but we are committed to the safety of our population. These policies will remain in effect until the appropriate authorities determine it is safe to resume regular operations.
