Adams County Sheriff's Office

Welcome to the Adams County Wisconsin Sheriff’s Office website. On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, I welcome you to our website.

This website has been designed to provide some general information about the Sheriff’s Office. We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our agency’s many responsibilities and duties. The Sheriff is a constitutional officer and the chief law enforcement officer in the County.  The Sheriff's duties are varied and for the most part are defined in the Wisconsin Statutes. The Sheriff’s Office operates the county jail, attends to the Circuit Court, operates a 911 Dispatch Center and provides law enforcement programs throughout the county. Other services that the Sheriff’s Office provides that are less known by the general public but just as vital include:

Drug Enforcement
Criminal Investigation
Serving Civil Process
Court Security
Transportation of Inmates
Recreational Safety Patrol
Crime Prevention
Public Education

Ultimately the Sheriff is responsible for keeping the peace within Adams County.

The men and women of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office are dedicated professionals who provide our citizens and visitors with a safe community to live, work and play.

Sheriff Brent R. York
