MESSAGE FROM THE SHERIFF

January has brought with it a brand new year.  As your Sheriff, I will be, from time to time, putting information out to the public through this web page.  One of the things I want to make you aware of is the theft of mail that has been going on in the western part of Butler County.  Please make sure you are aware of the vehicles that should be in your neighborhood.  If you see a vehicle that does not belong, please make a note of the vehicle description and the direction of travel.  Call 911 and let our dispatchers know.  We’ll get a Deputy out in the area to look for the vehicle and verify if they have legitimate reason for being there.  When you call and speak to a dispatcher, please let them know if you would like to have a Deputy stop by and make contact with you.  Our Deputies enjoy speaking with those we are sworn to protect.  It is also nice to put a face with the name. 

Check your mail daily.  If you are going to be out of town, you can call your post office and request a hold be put on your mail.  You can do this simply by going to the USPS website and filling out an online form.  https://holdmail.usps.com/holdmail/ is the link to their website. 

We have, in the past, asked citizens to be our eyes and ears.  It is just as important today as it has ever been.  As you are well aware, this is a large county.  We have a limited number of Deputies on duty at any one time.  If you see something that does not seem right, please call and let us know.  If it is something you would consider an emergency, call 911.  If it is not an emergency, call (316) 320-1294.  You can also call our toll free number at 800-794-0190. 

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I may be the Sheriff, but I work for you.
