JCSO ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES CLOSED DUE TO WEATHER: Jefferson County, Arkansas - January 31, 2023 - Due to dangerous travel conditions from the winter storm the Administrative Offices of the Sheriff will be closed on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, and Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
Freezing rain and sleet are predicted to cause significant icing of powerlines, trees, and roadways. Overnight temperatures are predicted to drop well below freezing, causing any melted ice to quickly refreeze on road and bridge surfaces. More precipitation is expected overnight and on tomorrow. We encourage everyone to stay home if possible! If you must travel please plan for extra travel time and before you leave ensure that your cell phone is charged and your vehicle is fully fueled. It's also important to have a flashlight, blanket, plenty of warm clothing, medicines, food, and water. Please be safe and again stay at home if at all possible!
Our Uniformed Patrol Division are on duty and available to respond to any emergencies but they may be taking non-emergency reports by telephone to limit dangerous travel during this weather event. Emergency and detention services will not be affected. If you have an emergency, please call 911 for assistance or call the Non-Emergency communications center, MECA at (870) 541-5300.
