The Responsibilities of Sheriff

The Sheriff’s primary responsibility is to provide leadership and structure to the law enforcement agency so that it can effectively meet the needs of citizens for an orderly and safe environment in which to live and work.  As your Sheriff, I intend to be a steward of our tax dollars while providing the men and women of the law enforcement division with the leadership, motivation and tools required to protect and serve Jefferson County.  My role as Sheriff will be to offer the right manpower with the right training and the right equipment to the right place at the right time.
