Following a multi-year planning and development process, we are excited to replace our current website on September 26 with a new design that will serve as a digital gateway to a wide variety of public services and information.


This booklet begins with a brief look at the origins of the sheriff's office, moves to the establishment of the sheriff's office in the Northwest, and then provides a history of your Washington County Sheriff's Office.
