County Sheriff

Sheriff’s Message

Welcome to the Uinta County Sheriff’s Official Site. Uinta County is one of the five original Counties making up the Wyoming Territory with boundaries on the south with Utah and on the north with Montana. Uinta County is rich with old west history. Outlaw Butch Cassidy was incarcerated in the Uinta County Jail for stealing a horse. There are many other colorful stories of lawmen and bandits that tell our history. In 1911 the boundaries of the County were redrawn to the present day boundaries.

Law Enforcement as it was in the past; is a necessary component, for the residents of Uinta County to have a safe, secure place to live. I believe that community involvement with the Sheriff’s Office is the only way to be truly effective in our efforts to deal with the ills of society and protect our independent way of life. The Uinta Sheriff’s Office exists to serve and protect the citizens of our County.

Be assured that the men and women of the Uinta County Sheriff’s Office care deeply about the citizens of this County and with your help we will make it even a better place to live.
