A Message From Sheriff Steve Jeffery
Welcome to the Independence County Sheriff's Department homepage! In an effort to better communicate with the public, we have created this webpage to keep our county's citizens informed. Through this webpage, our goal is to better serve our county by informing you of our programs which are in place to serve you. From teaching children about safety to helping a community start a neighborhood watch program, we can help each other make our streets and neighborhoods a safer place. We know that crime is a major concern for our citizens. Many times, without assistance from the public, we would not have been able to solve a crime or arrest a wanted person. The assistance and support we receive from the public has always been greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to take a look at our crime alert page. You might be able to help us solve a crime! On behalf of the men and women of the Independence County Sheriff's Department, I thank you for visiting our site.

September is Campus Safety Awareness Month
At the core of efforts is the groundbreaking 1990 legislation originally known as the Campus Security Act. Renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in 1998, in memory of the 19 year-old student who was brutally murdered in her college dorm room, this federal law requires institutions of higher education to release campus crime statistics and security policies to their current and prospective students and employees. Prior to this time, only 4 % of colleges publicized this information; today, over 6,000 institutions of postsecondary education report crime statistics annually and are held accountable by the U.S. Department of Education for doing so.
View our Sex Offender Registry

With statistics indicating that sex offenders pose a higher risk of re-offending than other types of criminals, and in order to help the citizens of Independence County better protect themselves against the threat of Sex Offenders we provide information to the public through our local Sex Offender registry.

Within this registry you will find a means to track currently registred sex offenders in our area, the State of Arkansas, and Nationwide. We also provide you with the ability to report possibly unregisterd offenders anonymously.
