Ohio County Sheriff

About

The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office, located in Wheeling, West Virginia, serves over 42,035 people. Though there are full-time and part-time police departments in the area, the Sheriff's Office has been the primary law enforcement agency for the majority of Ohio County since its inception in 1777.


Duties

The sheriff of a given county performs two distinct duties. They are the chief law-enforcement officers in the county, although much of this duty is handled by their chief deputies. They are also responsible for the collection of any taxes due to the county. While many sheriffs have a background in professional law enforcement, others are politicians or other local notables. West Virginia sheriffs are limited to two consecutive four-year terms.
