Happy Thanksgiving to all, but especially our own who are away from their family to keep Kiowa County safe. Huge shoutout to: Dispatchers, Sawyer Woodsmall & Shayla Beltz; Detention Officers, R. L. Smith & Terry Neill; and Deputies Justin Rugg & Sean Kost. ... See MoreSee Less
Being in a small community is great, especially when someone is in need of help. Throw Facebook in the mix and you have a world of scammers out there. Here recently, we have all these posts being shared about babies being taken, kids going missing, and older people who haven’t been seen. First off, if the profile was made an hour ago, more than likely it’s a scam. We need to start looking into things before sharing them because you’re opening up a whole new world to these scammers. This is an example listed below. I truly hope this child isn’t missing, but someone has decided to make fake profiles and use this. Please be aware, especially when giving people your information. You should never send money or bank information to anyone. ... See MoreSee Less
Best rules: share missing child posts from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children or state/local law enforcement.
Julie Randel Fitzgerald I saw you posted this pic from somewhere in AZ- I saw this post as well from somewhere in KS and then a couple days later saw this post from the Sheriff office- very sad that people are faking missing children!
They did it Snyder Texas as well

With the winds blowing today we will be in a burn ban starting now until Thursday night at midnight. As usual, please be mindful when working outside and causing any kind of sparks. The wind is not our friend during these times. Also, smokers, please dispose of your cigarettes properly. One cigarette can cause a lot of damage quickly! Thanks as always for keeping our firemen safe. ... See MoreSee Less
Just wanted to give a friendly reminder to everyone that we provide service to. If you have an emergency, see a situation, or need any kind of assistance, we ask that you call into the office and not directly to a deputy. If it’s an emergency, please call 911. If it’s not, but you still need assistance or see something you want to report, please call 620-723-2182. Even though our deputies go above and beyond to assist our communities, sometimes they’re busy on other calls, don’t always ask for all the info and things like that. When you call into dispatch, all the info needed is asked and passed to a deputy immediately. Sometimes the deputy you call may not be on duty or even out of the county. So calling in to dispatch is the best way to get assistance or report a crime or incident. We appreciate your assistance with this. ... See MoreSee Less
Heads up Kiowa County! If you’re trying to call 911 from a cell phone and you aren’t getting through, it’s not because we don’t want to talk to you! AT&T is having some technical difficulties and that is where our 911 lines come through. Not all phones are having issues but if you call and don’t get anyone, this would be why. If you’re having an issue getting us for assistance, please call our business line 620-723-2182. We hope these issues will be resolved soon. ... See MoreSee Less
