Sheriff's Office

The Sheriff’s Office is in charge of the county jail, warrants, crime prevention, criminal investigation, noise complaints, child abuse investigation and law enforcement.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department was established in 1830 by the late Sheriff Creed Taylor.


The Sheriff's Office maintains thousands of Warrants of Arrest issued by the District and Circuit Court. All these warrants constitute public records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Any person can obtain information on arrest warrants pertaining to himself or herself or any other person by placing phone call to the Sheriff's Office. Such information as the date of the warrant, charge(s) specified on the warrant, bond amount, and issuing court can be provided.
