As Sheriff of Union County, I would like to welcome you to the Union County Sheriff's Office website.  It is my hope this website will be a useful resource for the Citizens of Union County, as well as our friends worldwide.

The Office of Sheriff is unique among Law Enforcement organizations.  The Sheriff is the only elected law enforcement official in the State of Ohio.  The Sheriff is elected/re-elected every four years.  This allows the Sheriff, their record and the way in which he/she operates their Office to be accountable to the Citizens and the voters of the county in which he/she serves.  It is the only remaining law enforcement position in the United States which is filled through the electoral process.
