  1. To maintain and provide a well-equipped and trained staff to provide you with the best “sheriffs’ office” in North Missouri.
  2. Continue to aggressively investigate criminal violations, especially crimes against persons of all ages.
  3. Increase the number of public service events and programs for the community.
  4. Train LCSO staff on Critical Incident Training for intervention when mental health issues exist. This may also reduce crimes and lower our jail population while providing a better service to many.
  5. Schedule additional activities and training with area law enforcement agencies.
