What is a Sheriff?
The Sheriff is the principal law enforcement officer in the county where the individual is elected. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, traffic enforcement, courtroom security, warrant execution, inmate housing and patrol of unincorporated areas.
The Dallas County
The Dallas County Sheriff's Department is the chief law enforcement agency in Dallas County and has been for more than 164 years. We operate the 7th largest jail in the United States with over 7,300 inmates and more than 2400 employees. We are committed to maintaining our long running track record as an innovative department and a pioneer in the advancement of law enforcement techniques and policies.
Unlike municipal law enforcement agencies, the Sheriff has jurisdiction in all areas of the county including cities within Dallas County.
The Dallas County Sheriff's Department has an operating budget of 132 million dollars. Our department employs some of the finest men and women in law enforcement.
The citizens of Dallas County are our primary responsibility and this site will serve to provide the public with a central location to access information about the Dallas County Sheriff's Department.
