Law Enforcement

The Sheriff’s Office is subdivided into several divisions, one of which is the Law Enforcement Division.  The Deputy Sheriffs of the Law Enforcement Division (LED) are responsible for many police functions in the unincorporated areas of Kanawha County.  They patrol neighborhoods and highways, respond to 911 calls, investigate crimes and traffic crashes, and serve warrants.  They also bailiff the courts of Kanawha County, serve domestic violence protective orders, and coordinate with federal, state, and other local agencies aiming to keep the public safe and serve the communities of Kanawha County.

As you explore this website, you can learn about many of the functions and units of the LED and the other divisions of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.  Find out what our agency is already doing for you, your family, and community.

To inquire about incident or motor vehicle crash reports, or other requests during normal business days between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., call 304-357-0200.
