Mission Statement

​The Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Office is committed with courage, honor and integrity to protect the lives, property and rights of all people, to maintain order and to enforce the law. We are responsible for the professional care and custody of those confined to our jail, the security of the courts and the prompt investigation of crimes. It is our mission to maintain, while striving to improve, the quality of life and  freedoms we enjoy and to ensure that our county is a safe place to live, work and visit. We shall dedicate ourselves to treat people with respect, fairness and compassion.​



Caution!  Harvestseason is upon us which means you are likely to encounter large, slow moving equipment on the roadways.  Please use caution when meeting or passing equipment, especially on county roads!

From historic flooding to bomb cycles, blizzards, tornadoes, and hail storms, Nebraska has experienced numerous natural disasters in 2019. While these events often bring out the best in people, they are also an opportunity for some to prey on those in need and those wanting to help. The link to the "Attorney Generals Tips Regarding Contractors" guide below has been provided to assist consumers in protecting themselves and their property when selecting a contractor. The link to the "FEMA Alert on Disaster-Related Scams and Fraud" guide below has been provided to alert our citizens to be on guard for suspicious activity involving potential fraud, scam artists and other criminals who prey on disaster victims.
