Agency Mission

The mission of the Woodson County Sheriff Department is to enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors by providing effective crime reduction, preserving the peace, and working with the citizens in the community to enhance relations that will focus greater attention on crime prevention.

It is our goal to provide a department that strives to go above and beyond the expectations of our community. We accomplish this by communicating with other agencies and using all technological advances that are available to us to help solve the crimes that are reported. We will render assistance to the public whenever and wherever we are called upon, with the utmost professionalism.

We will always keep in mind that our department motto is, "Working Together to Make a Difference," and that means that we will not only work together as a department but with schools, citizens and other law enforcement agencies to reach obtainable goals toward the betterment of our community.
