The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office provides security checks for area residents who may be away from home for an extended period of time due to vacation, illness, or other circumstances. Deputies provide these checks as time and manpower permit since active calls for service take precedence. The frequency of checks is not guaranteed. If a problem arises during a check, deputies will attempt to contact you or your emergency contact.
The Sheriff’s Office provides this service primarily for residents living in unincorporated areas of the county. Jefferson County citizens residing within city or town limits should contact their local law enforcement agency as most agencies provide similar services. Residents are encouraged to use the online form but may contact the Sheriff’s Office at 812-265-8900, ext. 2103 during business hours or 812-265-2648 after hours for assistance.
