Sheriff Christopher Malphrus

Sheriff Christopher Malphrus
As Sheriff, the mission I embraced for Jasper County was to protect the lives, property, and rights of all citizens.

I was born and raised in Jasper County. Living in Baytree Apartments as a child I have memories of great leaders. Leaders such as Mr. Gardner in our summer basketball league, and Coach Stokes in my time playing football at Jasper County High. However, my memories also include growing up with a single mom who struggled throughout her life with drug and alcohol addictions. As a result, I lost my mom to those addictions at the age of sixteen, but God had a bigger plan. At the age of ten, I left home and was placed into foster care. Christmas of 1989 I was placed in a foster home with Rodney and April Malphrus.

I immediately noticed something different. They were the most loving people I had ever met. During the summer of 1990 I was placed with the Malphrus family on a permanent basis. I experienced something I had never experienced before, they gave me structure with love, we attended church regularly, and showed me a life with God. This new life led me to making one of the best decisions, giving my life to Christ. I was not only led to a new life in Christ, but a new life in the Malphrus family.

At the age of 21, my career began as a Detention Officer followed by being hired in 1999 by the Ridgeland Police Department. This year I celebrate my 17th year in law enforcement. In those celebrations, I am proud to say, I have been able to do what I vowed since my mother’s death, remove drugs and their supporting funds off the streets. With drug enforcement my passion, I have made some of the largest drug related money seizures across the United States reaching approximately 7 million dollars, and over 1,000 pounds of narcotics.

I have received national awards for many of my record breaking drug related seizures and was directly involved in starting the drug interdiction program. I have been able to train all over the United States as well as trained in combat with the latest trends in the criminal and drug arena. Throughout my law enforcement career I have had some of the best and most advanced training available, and I am currently finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice field.
