Since the election of Cache County’s first Sheriff in 1857, the primary mission of the Sheriff and his office has been to preserve the peace and to make all lawful arrests. The deputy sheriffs of the Criminal Division continue a strong commitment to that mission.
The Sheriff’s Office contracts with 14 communities, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Cache Valley Transit District to provide law enforcement services. This provides those cities with municipal-type law enforcement services in an economical manner. Cache County Sheriff’s Office serves more populations than any other sheriff’s office in the state except Salt Lake County.
