Welcome to the Bay County Sheriff's Office web site. Our goal is to introduce you to our office and its mission. This web site is one way we believe we can achieve this goal.  Our mission at the Bay County Sheriff's Office is two-fold.  We strive to provide unparallel service and dedication to duty to ensure a sense of well-being and safety for the citizens of Bay County.
In so doing, it is our intention to promote an equal sense of insecurity among the criminal element in our county.  I believe our common sense approach allows us to protect and serve all the citizens of Bay County, regardless of race or economic status.   I encourage you to take the time to visit with us on our site and learn more about the men and women who are honored to serve and protect as your Bay County Sheriff's Office.
