What does a Sheriff do?

A sheriff is an elected law enforcement officer who is responsible for safety and security. The sheriff is in charge of enforcing laws, statutes, and policies regarding safety in a community, usually a county. The sheriff also manages deputies, serves warrants and summonses, and assists with evictions. In many communities, the sheriff and his deputies operate and manage the local jail and provide courtroom security. They also help with traffic issues including giving tickets for speeding and other driving infractions. The sheriff works in close cooperation with other local law enforcement agencies, particularly on county-wide and statewide criminal investigations.

Commonly asked questions about Sheriffs

Can the Sheriff help me evict a tenant?

In most communities, the answer is "yes." The steps vary in each community, and the sheriff can help only after a court has ordered an eviction.

How do I obtain an accident report from the Sheriff?

Each local sheriff's office has different procedures. Some allow requests by email or online form, while others require an in-person visit to request the accident report.

How is bail determined?

In most courts, bail is determined by the court according to the flight risk presented by a given defendant. Most courts require a set amount for various types of offenses. In any event, the judge sets the bail amount, not the sheriff.
