Your Sheriff's Office has the responsibility for a wide range of Law Enforcement services. Included in these are the Bureau of Corrections, the Bureau of Law Enforcement, and Security of the County Court Complex.
The Sussex County Sheriff's Office dedicates itself to protecting the life and property of the citizens of the county, providing primary and support services to all law enforcement agencies, along with maintaining traditional sheriff's services. The office recognizes that the ability to successfully complete this mission is based on mutual respect and responsibility, shared by all agencies, and most importantly the citizens it serves. As professionals we are duty bound to enforce the laws in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority, and at all times, protecting the constitutional rights of all persons.
