The voters elect the Sheriff for four-year terms. The Sheriff and his office consist of two bureaus – the Enforcement Bureau that consist of patrol and criminal investigations and the Judicial Bureau that consists of the jail and court services. This office is responsible for enforcing all state and county laws enacted for the protection of the lives, property, health, and welfare of the county citizens. The Sheriff’s Office provides security for all courts, processes court orders, patrols county neighborhoods, manages the community service program, provides code enforcement, and operates the 376 bed county jail.
