About the Office

The sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer in the county and has a range of duties that include criminal investigations, traffic enforcement, and operation of the jail, including the safekeeping of inmates and operation of the county jail facility.   

The sheriff also provides security for the courthouse, including the county and district courts, assists with service of subpoena and accepts bail for prisoners in his custody.  The bail conditions on the prisoners are usually set by the magistrates, mostly the justices of the peace. Finally, the sheriff may conduct sales of forfeited property, property being sold at auction for failure to pay property taxes and property sold to satisfy judgments in civil cases.
