Message from the Sheriff

On behalf of the men and women of our office, I welcome you to the official Washington County Pennsylvania Sheriffs Office website. We appreciate your interest and thank you for visiting. We hope you find the information provided helpful.

The primary goal of the Washington County Sheriffs Office is to continue to make Washington County a safe and secure community for everyone that lives, works, or visits the area.

We have been proudly protecting and serving Washington County since 1781.   From modest beginnings, the office has grown to include 34 full-time deputies, 6 part-time Deputies and a Chief Deputy Sheriff and two Captains that oversee all operations, civil division, and administration services. 

The shifts are supervised by Sergeants, comprised of a desk Sergeant running day-to-day operations, an afternoon shift Sergeant and a Sergeant overseeing the warrant fugitive unit.   Four Corporals further assist with supervision for the day-to-day operation of the courthouse duties, issuance of civil process, patrols of county properties and county parks, the firearm division and fugitive warrant division.  

The Fugitive Unit is comprised of a Sergeant, a Corporal and four Deputies.  This unit is responsible for fugitive and domestic warrant apprehension and extradition.   We have one K-9 unit for tracking and explosive detection and a deputy assigned to DARE, public relations and community safety programs.  

Our firearms division is responsible for issuance of license to carry firearm permits, license to sell firearms and the catalog and safekeeping of weapons seized.  Our firearms division also provides training to our deputies for firearms qualifications, tactics, and safe handling.   We currently have four firearms instructors addressing our training needs.  

We also have an outstanding clerical staff who are ready to assist you when you call or visit the office. 

We hope that the information provided in our website will be helpful. I encourage you to participate in making our county safer.   Please visit us as well on our Facebook page
Please contact me or my Chief Deputy Sheriff Anthony R. Mosco if you have suggestions on how we can provide better services, as well as any other questions or concerns.
