Welcome to the Summit County Sheriff's Office website.
Our mission is to provide the safest environment possible for every resident of Summit County.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office was formed in 1840 within days of the establishment of Summit County itself. Today, it consists of more than 280 deputies, over 80 special deputies, and nearly 100 civilian staffers.
