The goal of the Chambers County Sheriff's Office is to foster an environment where our citizens are safe, and can take pride and comfort in the quality of life in our community. The dedicated men and women of our department strive to provide the best in law enforcement, community, and corrections services.


I am extremely proud of all of them and their professional efforts. In addition to the law enforcement services traditionally provided by the Sheriff, we maintain specialized units to deal with unique situations such as our SWAT Team and Dive/Rescue Team.

The Chambers County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the professional care and custody of those confined in our jail, the security of our courts and the prompt investigation of crime when it occurs.  It is our mission to improve and maintain the quality of life we enjoy and to ensure that our county is a safe place to live, work and visit.


We are totally dedicated to this mission, to the County we serve and to accept the responsibility of attaining our goal of achieving excellence within our profession.






It should be understood that the law enforcement profession is at times a difficult and demanding profession compared to any other.  The law enforcement profession elicits challenges, pressures and decision making.  It is imperative to recognize these standards and the importance of the ethical responsibilities of our position within our community. We must constantly strive for excellence and meet our challenges with the highest possible standards of professional conduct.  The Department must live up to and will be held accountable by the people of Chambers County for maintaining the highest standards.  The underlying premise of the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office is that deputies shall dedicate themselves to treat people with respect, fairness and compassion.
