We would like to offer you a look into your Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office is located at: 1035 Heritage Trl, Ottawa, OH 45875-8524
Our Sheriff’s Office consists of the Law Enforcement Services, Detectives, Corrections, Communications, Court Services, and Administration. The current facility was commissioned in December 2002, with inmates being moved from the previous jail, which was built in 1890, in February 2003. The 33,000 sq. ft. building includes the latest in technology and equipment to better facilitate operations and security.
We are better able to serve the public using technology by offering information on this site and beyond. Today’s crimes can be much more complex than ever before and the Sheriff’s Office actively seeks out and works with the community by asking citizens to be vigilant and more conscious of their surroundings. When citizens report suspicious activity, we are better able to respond to crime as it happens and ultimately make our communities safer for all. If you “See Something, Say Something.”
If you are interested in more information on crime prevention programs or safety talks for any age range, contact us. We will customize a presentation for your group. We also offer gun locks, child car seat inspections, golf cart inspections, child I.D. programs, and WEB checks for employment purposes, among many others.
I am extremely proud of all of the members of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. They do an outstanding job serving with pride, professionalism, and dedication. We are proud to be your first line of defense in Homeland Security and are striving to make Putnam County a safer place to live.
Sheriff Brian Siefker
