Welcome to our website. Our goal is to provide our citizens with as much information about crime trends as possible and provide avenues for you to supply us with information as well. Our website will provide you with this information plus many other links associated with public safety and criminal justice issues. Please pay special attention to those programs designed to solicit citizen input. You will be able to keep up with current events, court decisions and problems that impact our personnel.

The Sheriff’s Office is the public safety division of County Government that provides all citizens with service and protection by responding to emergencies, investigating crimes and assisting with the prosecution of those charged with crimes.


Our mission includes providing citizens and groups with preventive measures to keep them from being victims of crimes, coordinating public safety activities in the county with other public safety agencies, maintaining a safe, cost efficient yet secure detention facility for violators of the law. Our long-term mission is to educate the public and implement programs that will keep Wise County citizens "Safe and Sound."

Our goal is to represent the citizens of Wise County in a manner that exhibits pride, efficiency, and individual respect for all; to be a model law enforcement agency that promotes cooperation among all representatives of the criminal justice system and to improve the “quality of life” in Wise County by soliciting cooperation from all law abiding citizens. We want to not only combat crime efficiently, but also to provide services that remove the “fear of crime” for our citizens.

We value your input and feedback. The Wise County S.O. Directory page contains a list of key personnel and their E-Mail addresses. We believe that a better informed community will become a safer community.

 I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character, or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution and the community I serve."
