County government plays an important part in the lives of Stephens County residents as we provide services throughout their lives by recording births, adoptions, marriages, divorces, providing health care to indigents, certifying deaths and probating wills of the deceased. Residents also depend upon county departments to record land records, register voters, conduct  elections and maintain rural roads.

Stephens County personnel carry out responsibilities in the justice system of the various courts, law enforcement, probation and housing of inmates awaiting trial or punishment, public safety, health, welfare, recreational and senior citizens services as well as various administrative functions.
