Due to last week’s flooding the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office has been unable to reopen the Elkview Detachment at the community center in that area. No taxes can be paid there, and no Deputy Sheriffs will be able to work in that office.
We will maintain patrols in the area, but the Deputies will not be able to use that work space. Patrols along the flooded areas have actually increased in an effort to help people affected by the flooding and prevent, stop, and investigate looting.
Taxes may be paid at the other four detachment or in Charleston at the County Courthouse. Options are also available on our website at www.kanawhasheriff.us.
If you have an emergency please dial 911. For non-emergency incidents the Sheriff’s Office can be dispatched by dialing 304-357-0191.
