Dear Citizens:

As Christmas approaches and this year comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes for a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year from all of us at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

As we approach the end of the year, my commitment to the citizens of this County remains strong, and I will continue to work with you to improve the quality of life for the current and future residents of Jefferson County. It is my goal to make 2020 a year where members of our community feel safer and are encouraged to more often extend a helping hand to their neighbors, coworkers, family, friends, and strangers in need.

In the coming days, many of us will be spending time with our loved ones for the holidays. I challenge everyone to help keep our roadways safe for those traveling through our county. Please, buckle up and remember to drink responsibly. Deputies will be covering many of our more frequently traveled roads to ensure safe travels for all motorists.


It is the mission of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office to protect the people we serve, and we can only do this with the help of our Deputies and the citizens we serve.

It's a real pleasure to say "thank you" to our community as we wish you a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year, full of happiness and success. It is an honor to serve you and I look forward to many more years of service as your Sheriff. Have a safe and happy holiday season!




Lafayette Woods, Jr. Sheriff
