A Message from the Sheriff:

From the first day on the job, I’ve stressed the importance of treating all members of our community with respect, being transparent and accountable to the individuals that the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office serves. This office provides the citizens of Taylor County with a high level of customer service and a level of professionalism that gives me great honor to serve as your Sheriff. We understand that we are stewards of the public’s trust and that is a responsibility that I take very seriously. From our patrol deputies to our detention officers, we are committed to providing the very best in law enforcement services.

As we strive for transparency and open government, we offer you a streamlined website that is both informative and user friendly. This site serves as a resource for members of the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office, the media, and the public. As part of our commitment, we’ve created our very own Facebook Page which serves as a real-time message board. Each citizen in Taylor County can be proud to share in the successes of your Sheriff’s Office.

We ask for your continued partnership as we work together to keep our community safe and ensure it remains one of the country’s most enjoyable places to live and work.

As your Sheriff, it is a great honor to serve you, and I thank you for the opportunity you have given me to serve.
