Message from the Sheriff

Welcome to Knox County Illinois.

The Knox County Sheriff's Department serves a population of 55,000 who live in a 720 square mile area. The Sheriff's Department is comprised of sixty-three employees who are dedicated in serving the citizens of Knox County. The Department operates under a $3.6 million budget for fiscal year 2010.

The Department's vision statement is: "To maintain a Sheriff's Department that holds citizens' trusts and confidence earned through professional and fair delivery of public safety service in partnership with the communities we serve". I trust the citizens will view this web site as yet another valuable tool to be used in pursuing community policing making Knox County a safer place to live and raise a family. In the next few weeks, additions will be made to the web site to provide further information to the public.

It is with great honor to serve you as your Sheriff. This is a fine community and collectively, we can and will make a difference.
