Serving Hancock County since 1997.

Welcome to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office website. Within these pages, you will find information about the office, from enforcement to corrections.

It is very important to me and my staff that you find this to be a useful resource of information on our Office. You’ll find several useful tools including:

  • The Active Inmate search, which allows you to see current and past inmates.
  • The Sex Offender registry, which allows you to see all registered sex offenders in Hancock County and to sign up for email notifications when an offender registers in your neighborhood.
  • A link to Everbridge, which allows you to register an email address and/or cell phone to receive emergency weather alerts, amber alerts, news releases, or road closures for Hancock County.

You can find how to request public records, get your CCW license, get a background check, participate in Sheriff’s Sales, and much more. Please take a few minutes to learn more about the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.

Thank you for your interest!
