Director David Barnes leads the Services Department of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) which is made up of the Support Services Division and Logistic/General Support Division. The ability of any deputy to answer calls for service and provide professional police protection to citizens around the clock often depends on the actions of the dedicated members of this department.
From highly-skilled public safety telecommunicators who serve as direct conduits for communication with the first responding deputies to building and maintenance staff who are responsible for housing more than 500 employees to fleet maintenance personnel who maintain over 500 pieces of equipment, the concept of working together to accomplish a common goal is the key ingredient to the operational success of the department.
