The tragedy of September 11, 2001 has                    Awards
re-awakened our appreciation and       
concern for one another.   Clearly, we                       Civil Process
have much to be thankful for.                                  Court Security

The integrity and commitment of our                        Communication
officers to both  our Sheriff’s Office and                   Community Service
the community is commendable. Our goal is              Patrol/Special Operations
to provide as near perfect protection and                  Victim Witness Program
service as possible. Whether we are                         Informational Links
responding to the needs of our citizens or providing safety programs that  will benefit everyone,  our desire is to continue making tremendous strides in keeping our community safe.

Wythe County is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia covering 460 square miles.
The county’s population is approximately 30,000 and although most of our county is rural and some
slow paced, interstates 77 and 81 intersect here, bringing numerous travelers to and through our county
on a daily basis.

The Wythe County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Doug King, consists of thirty-nine (39) sworn law enforcement officers. This figure includes, patrol, court and civil personnel. Only twenty-one are designated as patrol officers. The Wythe County Sheriff’s Office also has the following grant provided positions: 3 school resource officers, 1 D.A.R.E. officer, 2 victim assistance officers, 5 full time civil/courtroom security deputies and 8 part time courtroom security deputies.
