Sheriff's Message

Mesa County is a wonderful place to live, visit, recreate, and raise a family. Whether you live here or are visiting and taking advantage of the abundant outdoor activities we enjoy every day, my staff and I welcome you. I encourage you to navigate our CRIMEWATCH website to learn more about crime occurring in your neighborhood, ways to prevent crime and prepare for emergencies. You can also connect directly with the men and women of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, who work hard each day to keep this community safe. I hope you will find the information easy to access and informative.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for public safety in the 3,300 square miles of Mesa County. Not only do we respond to 911 calls and conduct criminal investigations, our other duties include operating the Mesa County Detention Facility, providing security at the Mesa County Justice Center, search and rescue operations, emergency management, and wildland firefighting. These services are provided by approximately 250 dedicated employees and over 350 committed volunteers.

It is our privilege to serve, protect the rights of our residents, and provide the highest level of professional service possible.

I encourage you to sign up for customized alerts and download the CRIMEWATCH application for the latest information about crime in your neighborhood and news from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.
