The county is bordered by the state of Alabama to the north, the Choctawhatchee River to the west, and Holmes Creek to the east.

Today Deputies from The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office went to Holmes County High School and met with students in grades 9-12.

Deputies conveyed to them the repercussions of making threats of violence, the dangers of social media, bullying, and about sexting.

Our goal is to educate the students and hopefully keep them from making bad decisions. Deputies will also be going to the other schools in the county to deliver the same message.

The Holmes County Sheriff's Office is investigating allegations that a student at Bethlehem School made statements indicating he was going to shoot others at the school.
Holmes County Sheriff John Tate urges parents to take time to speak with their children about the dangers of making comments about school shootings or making bomb threats. Sheriff Tate and Staff will also be traveling to the schools to speak to the students about the ramifications of making threats.
"It seems we have had an increase in threats of violence by school students in the last several weeks," said Sheriff Tate. "The tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland punctuates our need to take each threat, real or perceived, against our students seriously. I urge parents to take time to speak to their children about the repercussions of making such threats, as well as to seek resources to help their children if they feel the child is dealing with issues that could lead to violence. Our children are our greatest treasure, and we should work together to ensure their safety."

The U.S. Marshalls Fugitive Task Force in Orlando has captured Kyle Logan Dilmore in Ocoee, Florida. Dilmore was taken into custody without incident and will await extradition back to Holmes County. The truck that was stolen has not been recovered yet.
The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office is currently looking for Kyle Logan Dilmore, W/M from Chipley.

Dilmore has active warrants on him for 2 counts of grand theft, burglary, and aggravated assault.

Dilmore’s charges stem from an incident on February 19, 2018, where he went to 3176 Hwy 2 around 5:00 am and stole a tractor and drove it to Esto and headed south on 79.

The tractor broke down in front of residence. The owner of the residence tried to help him fix the tractor but to no avail.

The tractor was left there and Dilmore walked back to 3176 Hwy 2, where he woke the owner and then he pulled a hammer on him, threatened him and tried to take his wallet. Dilmore then jumped into the owner’s truck and fled.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Dilmore or the stolen truck you are asked to contact the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office.
