Letter From the Sheriff

Welcome to the Walker County Sheriff’s Office web site! On behalf of the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, I am pleased to present our official web page. In these fast paced days of change, we consider this our latest effort to keep up with new and improved technology. We have attempted to feature many different areas of the Sheriff’s Office. As you explore our site, it is our sincere wish that we will be able to provide you with answers to frequently asked questions or contact information for our employees, as well as other agencies and offices. I was elected to the Office of Sheriff in November of 1996, and took office in January 1997. I am currently serving my fourth term. It is my desire, and the desire of all the men and women at the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, to promote public safety and to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Walker County. Thank you for visiting our site; I hope you’ll come back often. Sheriff Steve Wilson
