Mission Statement

The mission of the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office is to provide the best law enforcement services possible to a growing community. With community-oriented goals in mind, our office will protect the lives, rights, and property of all who live in or visit Cape Girardeau County.

It is our sworn constitutional duty to enforce and uphold the laws of the State of Missouri and the United States. Our goal is to work together with our community in accomplishing these duties while obtaining the trust and respect of all citizens that we serve. In doing so, we must be professional and not lose sight of compassion, because compassion brings hope, and hope makes all things possible. In all matters, we must never forget that we are our brother's keeper.
