*The Administration Offices (includes Gun Permits) will be closed

May 28 for Memorial Day.  Remember the fallen heroes!

***SCAM ALERT*** We ARE NOT calling persons by phone and telling them to pay us money so the Sheriff’s Office can dismiss a bench warrant. BEWARE of phone calls asking for money and or personal information.

*This month is set aside for Police Memorial.  We recognize all of the Law Enforcement community for their ultimate sacrifice.  Always remember them each day.

*The month of April 2018, -14 Law Enforcement Officers and One K9 were killed or died in the line of duty for the United States of America.

*That brings the 4-month total of Law Enforcement Officers killed for the year to 49.
