The mission of our organization is to consistently contribute to our community’s reputation as a safe place to live, work, play, learn and visit. We accomplish our mission through providing the highest quality of law enforcement, corrections, and support services possible within the resources entrusted to us. We do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public confidence.

Grays Harbor County is geographically quite large which presents a challenge for providing uniformed law enforcement services. We have resident deputies who live in outlying areas as well as substations to help us respond more quickly to calls.

The Sheriff's Office provides a number of regular services to the public concerning concealed pistol licensing, forest products hauling permits, service of civil process, questions about criminal laws, warrants, the county jail, sex offender registration, etc. If you would like more information about these or any other Sheriff's Office function, please call (360) 249-3711.

The Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office is comprised of three divisions:  Criminal Division, Corrections Division, and Civil Division.  Each division has an administrative officer in charge who reports to the Undersheriff and then to the Sheriff. I am proud of the way each division works together as a team to help accomplish our department mission. To learn more about one of the three divisions, please visit any of the links on the left.

Sheriff Rick Scott is the county official charged with the administration of the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office. State Statute (RCW 36.28.010) states that the Sheriff is "the Chief Executive Officer and conservator of the peace of the county."

SCAM ALERT!  
Our agency has been receiving multiple complaints regarding the IRS calling them and telling them they owe money, there's a warrant for their arrest, that they're parked down the street and coming to arrest them, etc. This is a scam!  Never give out personal information over the phone.  If you get a call from someone who says they are from the IRS, please call 1-800-366-4484 which is a legitimate number to report suspicious activity.


We are also receiving complaints from citizens that they are getting calls from someone from the Sheriff's Office saying they need send money or purchase gift cards, etc to take care of a warrant or pay a fine.  The Sheriff's Office will never ask for money or gift cards.  If you ever have a doubt, please call the Sheriff's Office.
