The Pope County Sheriff's Office was established in 1829 when Sheriff H. Stinnett (served from 1829 to 1830) was placed into office. During its 187-year history, the Pope County Sheriff's Office employees have strived to provide the county with excellent law enforcement, public service and public safety. The department is proud of the relationships forged with the communities and we are humbled by the support and encouragement the department receives from the citizens of Pope County.
