The Mission of the Cass County Sheriff's Office is to serve the citizen's of Cass
County; by providing law enforcement, by keeping the peace and protecting life and
property, by being the servant of the courts and by maintaining custody and control
of our prisoners, in and out of the jail. This must all be done in an efficient and
effective manner without infringing on anyone's individual rights. This office
will conduct itself professionally and with the utmost courtesy to everyone
we have contact with.
This Office will serve the community by providing law enforcement to everyone equally and fairly, treating all with the respect they deserve. We will make every effort to stand between criminals and their intended victim. We will be the victim's advocate when a crime has been committed. We will handle non-criminal calls with equal diligence and respect. All services must be provided in a timely manner, using all the resources we have available.
This Office will cooperate with every other law enforcement agency, fire department, emergency services, and political entity, to ensure peace and harmony throughout the county and beyond.
This Office will serve the courts with diligence by serving summons, subpoenas, and court orders timely and respectfully to everyone so ordered. This Office will also provide courtroom security to judges, jurors, witnesses, attorneys, clerks, and defendants or anyone having reason to appear.
This Office will be responsible for the care and maintenance of all prisoners in our custody, never violating their rights. We will listen to prisoner requests and provide essential items needed. We will treat all prisoners with the respect they deserve.
ANYTHING LESS THAN ALL WE CAN DO TO ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION IS INADEQUATE.
