Carson City Sheriff's Office is comprised of many divisions. The most basic philosophy of this agency is to be an active participant in the community. What this means to you is that we are driven to keep you informed about your home, neighborhood, work, and everything that is taking place around you in Carson City.
Sheriff's Office Priorities
While all law enforcement agencies prioritize their calls for service, the Sheriff’s Administrations embraces other priorities as well. These include the reduction of crime by proactively targeting gang activities and the illegal use and/or possession of controlled substances. Other major areas of concern are the safety of our children in the school environments, through the School Resource Officer program, safe streets/accident reduction through Traffic Management, and the impact the mental health crisis has on the community. All Sheriff’s programs are designed with components of education, prevention, and ultimately enforcement.
