Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Vision Statement
To be recognized as one of the foremost professional, effective, and progressive Sheriff’s Offices contributing to the communities of Lincoln County with no more victims.
Unfortunately, all of us are increasingly susceptible to identify theft and fraud. With the increasing use and popularity of the internet through web sites and social media, we have become even more vulnerable as these technologies extend deeply into our daily lives – including the lives of children. In recognition of this, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is making an effort to seek out and share information sources to help our citizens learn more about fraud and identify theft and how to protect themselves and their loved ones.
The purchase and use of fireworks is illegal in Lincoln County. Please refer to Section 5, Chapter 1 of the Lincoln County Code for the description of the code and the penalty for breaking it.
