Jasper County Sheriff's Office Open House


Deputies have a challenging job, but today Jasper county residents learned how they train and about the tools help do their job.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office held an open house this morning. Visitors could see swat equipment, outfitted cars and emergency response units from the Duenweg fire department too. A mock interactive crime scene was on display for future officers to experience.

The k-9 division demonstrated training routines with 5 dogs sniffing for drugs and explosives.

Officials say while most people don't want to have run ins with deputies, the department has lots to offer.

"Most of the things we do aren't secret things. Most of the things we do are available to the citizens of jasper county that we use in law enforcement to make our jobs easy and to help solve crimes and make sure the public is safe" says Corporal Matt Smith.


The Jasper County Sheriff's Office offers k-9 training even to the public , along with many other law enforcement programs for citizens.
