The Switzerland County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page was created to help keep the community informed of different events, news, and activities. This page is not a crime reporting page as it is not monitored 24/7, so in the event you need emergency services, please call 911. If you have non-emergent information you would like to report, please contact the dispatch center at 812-427-3636. Please call 812-427-2057 if you have any questions regarding the jail, inmates (including visitation, commissary, phone cards, bonds, charging information, mugshot requests, etc.), or jail employment opportunities.
Please remember when commenting, the use of foul language or derogatory comments will not be permitted and will be removed. This page is not intended for complaints against our officers or this office, and such comments will be removed. We have a procedure in place for those issues (please contact the Sheriff at 812-427-3636 regarding those issues).
We also realize many citizens in the community are friends, relatives, or know the Deputies personally; however, we ask if you need immediate assistance or wish to report something, please contact dispatch directly. The Deputies may be on their day off, vacation, family outing, etc. and we would not want to delay a response or assistance if needed.
Sincerely, Sheriff Brian L. Morton
