Dear Citizens of Leslie County:

As Sheriff of Leslie County and on behalf of my staff we pledge to do our best to serve and protect the people of Leslie County. While there are many challenges that we face in this rural part of Eastern Kentucky, there is also much potential for growth and progression. Our objective is to maintain peace and order so the citizens of this county can achieve that potential. We are proud of our rich heritage of hard work and sacrifice. Leslie County was built on the backs of coal miners who sacrificed to provide for their families and we feel a deep obligation to protect all that they worked so hard to build.

If we can be of service please feel free to contact the Sheriff’s Department by phone or visit our Facebook( If you have an emergency please call 911 and Sheriff’s Deputies will be dispatched to assist you.
