Lancaster County Sheriff
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is committed to seek and find ways to affirmatively promote and preserve a feeling of security and safety in members of the community.
Statement of Values
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is responsible for a full range of law enforcement and court-related duties. The Sheriff's Office is staffed by 99 employees including 74 commissioned deputies. The majority of deputies are assigned to the Patrol Division and respond to emergency and routine calls for service in addition to conducting self-initiated prevention and detection of law violations, investigate criminal activity and traffic accidents, and perform coroner's duties. The rest perform more specialized duties such as major crime investigation, service of civil process, drug offense investigation, D.A.R.E., crime prevention and education, training, court security, and the extradition of prisoners from other states.
Although primarily handling calls for service to the people outside the city of Lincoln, the Sheriff's Office also works cooperatively with the Lincoln Police Department, Nebraska State Patrol, University of Nebraska Police, and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
