As conservators of the peace and public safety in Yates County the Office of Sheriff will deliver effective and responsive law enforcement, corrections, court security, civil, and emergency communication services equally and fairly without regard to race,  creed, ethnicity, or one's social or economic standing. We value an exchange of ideas with all persons,  groups and entities in order to deploy efficiently our resources for the good of the community and populations we serve. Our objective is to make Yates County a safe place in which to reside, work, visit and travel.
