The mission of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Foundation is to foster visible and direct community support for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office by strengthening pride in and connection to the agency’s mission of excellence.

The role of the Foundation is not to displace funding for basic law enforcement or to reduce in any way the responsibility of Jefferson County to commit the necessary funding for law enforcement services to its citizens.  However, as modern law enforcement agencies tasks continue to become more complex, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, similar to law enforcement agencies across the country has increasing needs to stay current in training, technology and equipment, and communication and partnership efforts with the community.  Foundation support empowers our Sheriff’s Office to provide the best available programs in the areas of education, training, technology, communication, youth outreach and community partnerships.
