As Yavapai County has continued grow we maintain our continued trend of crime rates lower than the national average. The Sheriffs Office, working with several other departments, has developed and implemented several programs to reduce the jail population and focus on crime prevention. With a plan developed over 10 years ago, land was purchased for the construction of a Justice Center. Even with the unique challenges that face law enforcement today, the Sheriff's Office is here not to just enforce the law but to protect your individual freedoms and liberties.
