Sheriff's Office


The Sheriff’s Office has been guarding the safety of our community since 1720, making us one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the nation. The duties of our office have changed dramatically since the 1700s, but our mission has remained the same:

Continuing the partnership with our community, the members of the Sheriff’s Office promise to provide all citizens with the highest degree of protection for their lives and property and to develop community responsibility directed at reducing crime and enhancing safety through problem-solving tactics, thereby creating an environment where crime cannot flourish.
