For a brief overview of Washington State's 39 independently elected Sheriff's Offices, click on the county of choice on the map or pick from the menu below.

NOTE:  Do not try and compare population, staffing, and budget between agencies.

Each Sheriff's Office has different divisions and responsibilities.  Some may be responsible for operating a jail, an emergency 911 communications center, or an animal services function.  Others do not.

Some Sheriff's Offices also provide contract law enforcement services for incorporated cities, or have a large number of independent municipal police agencies providing service outside of the Sheriff's Office.
