Hutchinson County Sheriff's Office
Protect & Serve
In Hutchinson County, we have cities with all the conveniences, in addition to wide open and scenic spaces and ranchlands. This includes flat farmlands, canyons, and the Lake Meredith National Park, which means that there are plenty of opportunities for our citizens and visitors to enjoy everything from nightlife to boating, fishing, and camping.
Hutchinson County has more ghost towns than any other county in the Texas panhandle. Our county was known as Comanche Territory in the early years, because of the many battles fought in the area, including the historical Adobe Walls battles. Several Indian burial grounds have been discovered, even within the past several years.
Our employees are dedicated to preserving the peace and protecting all our citizens with Honesty, Integrity, and Professionalism. Hutchinson County Sheriff’s Office is comprised of 3 divisions: Administration, Patrol, and Jail.
Administration staff includes an Administrative Assistant, Warrants Clerk, and two Records Clerks, who provide the backbone to the rest of the department and keep our processes running smoothly.
Our Field Deputies work in different environments ranging from patrol; traffic; civil; criminal & drug investigations; warrants; rescue, search, and recovery operations; emergency evacuations; and a recent addition of a dual-purpose K-9 division.
We have 17 Jail officers and two Jail support staff members who keep the public safe, while also keeping those incarcerated safe and well cared for.
Our mission statement is to provide our law-abiding citizens a safe, secure environment where they know we are working diligently to maintain that level of comfort and peace throughout our community.
