Welcome to the website for The Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office. I invite you to give each of our divisions a glimpse to see the variety of services we offer to our County. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share this information with you, we hope your visit will be informative.
The Gloucester Sheriff’s Office is a progressive, responsive agency dedicated to serving its citizens. We are a 24-hour full service law enforcement agency and jail staffed with professional employees dedicated to service and proud of the positive impact they have made in our community.
D.W. Warren Jr. Sheriff
The Mission of the sheriff's office is to provide for peace and security of all residents and visitors of Gloucester County.
The responsibilities associated with this mission are many. They include enforcement of state, local, and federal laws, protect life and property and operate a secure and safe jail, identify criminal offenders and criminal activity and, where appropriate, to apprehend offenders and participate in subsequent court proceedings, reduce the opportunities for the commission of some crimes through preventive patrol and other measures, aid individuals who are in danger of physical harm, protect constitutional guarantees, facilitate the movement of people and vehicles, assist those who cannot care for themselves, resolve conflict, identify problems that are potentially serious law enforcement or government problems, create and maintain a feeling of security in the community, promote and preserve civil order, and generally assist citizens in urgent situations. (American Bar Association, 1983)
We carry out these responsibilities diligently, courteously and take pride in the services we provide. We work in cooperation with community agencies and groups to promote understanding and to enhance our law enforcement capabilities.
The seven point star is crafted to have seven points because the number is a sign of perfection. Each point represents a tenet of police ideology. The Badge thus is a symbol of trust given to us by the community we serve.
