The Sheriff's Statement

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office has a distinguished history as one of the premiere law enforcement agencies in the State of Idaho. We tenaciously cultivate our long history of being just and fair, as well as a good steward of the public's time and resources.

We continue that reputation by setting high standards of excellence in our personnel and our job performance. We accomplish this through application of solid, proven law enforcement principles, and we step out of the traditional law enforcement role to address issues using community resources and legislative action.

Not only do we choose to work here, we also choose to live here. By doing so, our commitment to the quality of law enforcement is second to none.

It is my honor to be the elected Sheriff of Kootenai County and to work with the fine men and women who make up the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office.
