Habersham County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Kris Hall has entered the race for Hall County Sheriff.
Hall started his law enforcement career in 1996 following his service in the U.S. Army.

He currently supervises the traffic unit and part of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic unit.
“Currently, the organizational structure doesn't lend itself to smart growth and a defined future plan. This needs to be changed with a reorganization; a streamlined, and functional blueprint to aid in smart spending of taxpayer funds and personnel in place to (ensure) full services are provided to the citizens of Hall County,” Hall wrote in a release announcing his candidacy.
Hall has lived in Hall County since 2002. He is married to Samantha and has three daughters.
“Having retired from a similar agency after 18 years, Kris is more than familiar with rapid growth and how an agency can manage it. The Hall County Sheriff's Office should be setting the example for how a large agency should be managed,” Hall said in a statement.
