On behalf of the men and women of the York County Sheriff’s Office, I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to our website. Throughout our site you can view our philosophy, organizational structure, facilities, and general information, as well as contact our personnel.


The Sheriff’s Office has three major divisions; Police Services, Corrections, and Civil Process.

The Police Services Division is responsible for providing law enforcement protection for fourteen rural towns within York County that do not have organized police departments. The Deputies that comprise the Police Services Division investigate thefts, burglaries, domestic violence complaints, motor vehicle complaints, and numerous other violations of state and federal law.


The Corrections Division is charged with the care, custody, and control of inmates that are being held pre trial and post conviction at the York County Jail.

The York County Jail can house up to 350 inmates and through the efforts of the men and women of the Corrections Division, our facility recently obtained accreditation through the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. Additionally, the facility received a 99.2% rating in 2011 from the Maine Bureau of Corrections.


The Civil Process Division serves civil paperwork ranging from small claims, divorce, foreclosure, Department of Health and Human Service’s matters, and other court related paperwork that is served within York County.

The York County Sheriff’s Office provides professional public safety to the citizens of York County.


Sheriff William L. King, Jr.
