With the launch of the new Independence County Sheriffs Department website we plan to communicate with the public in a more efficient way.
The Patrol Division is the most recognized form of law enforcement. We are the officers in uniforms driving marked cars with bright blue lights and we are the ones you have the most contact with. All things considered, we hope to maintain a dialogue with you about traffic safety and and some of the specific concerns we have in our community.
In the future, we will be posting information about traffic safety zones, sobriety checkpoints, and areas where we may be monitoring speed....
With statistics indicating that sex offenders pose a higher risk of re-offending than other types of criminals, and in order to help the citizens of Independence County better protect themselves against the threat of Sex Offenders we provide information to the public through our local Sex Offender registry.
Within this registry you will find a means to track currently registred sex offenders in our area, the State of Arkansas, and Nationwide. We also provide you with the ability to report possibly unregisterd offenders anonymously.
