Ellis County Sheriff's Office website

Welcome to the Ellis County Sheriff's Office website. This is another avenue, for me as your Sheriff, to help keep you informed of what is happening in your County and YOUR Sheriff's Office. Please visit the site often for updates.



The mission of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office is to provide professional law enforcement services to citizens and visitors of Ellis County. This Office will strive to enforce the law and maintain order in a fair and impartial manner.

The Sheriff and his Deputies recognize that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves. This Office actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce criminal activity and within legal limits, to assist in bringing to justice those that prey on the person and property of others.


Message from the Sheriff

When you elected me as your Sheriff I promised a new philosophy for the office and changes that would enhance county law enforcement services to you. This website is just one example of the updating we are doing. It is my goal for you to be able to learn of the services available and to provide contact information should you need help from the Sheriff's Office.

Since taking office in 2009 and with the help of Ellis County citizens, we have reduced major crime in Ellis County by 55 percent (figures reported through 2013). Your Sheriff's Office has the only active narcotics unit in the county to attack local drug issues. We have more marked units on the county roads and highways, have initiated an air wing, marine unit, opened up 288 more beds in the jail, started charging inmates a co-pay for medical services, have put more inmates out on county roads picking up trash and started a vegetable garden (worked by inmates), to name a few. And we have done all this with the same budget the retired sheriff had in 2008.

Come by and visit. Let me know you are coming and I will have hot coffee or iced tea ready for you. My direct office number is 972-825-4901.
