A Message From Sheriff Steve Jeffery
Welcome to the Independence County Sheriff's Department homepage! In an effort to better communicate with the public, we have created this webpage to keep our county's citizens informed. Through this webpage, our goal is to better serve our county by informing you of our programs which are in place to serve you. From teaching children about safety to helping a community start a neighborhood watch program, we can help each other make our streets and neighborhoods a safer place. We know that crime is a major concern for our citizens. Many times, without assistance from the public, we would not have been able to solve a crime or arrest a wanted person. The assistance and support we receive from the public has always been greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to take a look at our crime alert page. You might be able to help us solve a crime! On behalf of the men and women of the Independence County Sheriff's Department, I thank you for visiting our site.

Sincerely,

Sheriff Steve Jeffery
July 4, 2014: Independence Day
As families and neighbors head outdoors to backyard barbecues, campouts, and fireworks displays for the 4th of July celebrations, share the message of cooking fire and fireworks safety in your community. Visit FireSafety.gov, the National Council on Fireworks Safety, and National Citizen Corps Affiliate, the National Fire Protection Association for tips on how to safely enjoy cooking outdoors, campfires, and fireworks. Consider asking your local television station to conduct an interview with a firefighter or Fire Corps volunteer to share this information. Additionally, you may distribute fire and fireworks safety information at summer celebrations around the community. Engage CERT members and other Citizen Corps volunteers to participate in 4th of July parades; consider having a Citizen Corps float and be sure to hand out preparedness information along the parade route.
