“Sometimes it takes money to accomplish worthy goals. But it can be difficult to get people to understand that they need to invest in their own communities. The primary function of drug enforcement is saving people. Thankfully Poarch understands that and endorses it and embraces it.”
—Sheriff Grover Smith, Escambia County
Escambia County is approximately 1,000 square miles with an estimated population of nearly 38,000. Brewton became the county seat in the 1880s. Escambia County Sheriff’s Office works closely with the Poarch Tribal Police to enforce laws and eradicate drugs throughout the community.
