Mission Statement




 Sheriff David M. Carpenter


The mission of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Community Based

Policing is to form a partnership with the citizens of Lincoln County.  Our

goal is to understand and serve the needs of the citizens of our county, to

improve the quality of life, to develop a good working relationship with our

citizens, to maintain order, help to solve problems, and apprehend criminals

in a manner consistent with the law.  In adopting the Community Policing

Philosophy, we will look beyond the traditional law enforcement response.

All our citizens will be treated with courtesy and respect and we will work

with them to address our overall mission of protecting life and property and

preventing crime so that they may enjoy a better quality of life.
