The Office of the Sheriff is overseen by an independent elected official, the County Sheriff. Sheriff William 'Bill' Masters was first appointed to fill the previous Sheriff's term in 1980 and he is currently the longest serving Sheriff in Colorado's history.
The duties and responsibilities of the autonomous Office of the Sheriff are set forth in Colorado Revised Statutes. These include maintain peace and order, provide general law enforcement services to unincorporated areas of the County, serve criminal warrants and civil process, operate a jail, coordinate search and rescue efforts, suppress prairie and forest fires and perform other duties as directed by Colorado State Statutes and the Courts. The Sheriff's Office works hand-in-hand with community members to provide protection and service to our community as a whole.
Sheriff Bill is committed to providing quality service to the community. Email the Sheriff with suggestions or comments anytime.
