Message from the Sheriff:
I am extremely proud of the dedicated police officers and civilian staff of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department. The department has experienced growth in several divisions and has attempted to expand to serve the community.
Each year brings an increase in requests for service from the citizens of Kosciusko County. With limited resources available, the Department has attempted to keep up with the demands of the public. The population of the county nearly doubles, as do the calls for service, during the summer months. Our department always has, and will, strive to provide complete coverage to all citizens and areas of Kosciusko County. The staff of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department and I stand by our “Commitment to Excellence” in serving the citizens of Kosciusko County.
W.R. Goshert, Sheriff
