Mission Statement

We will go where we are uncomfortable, until we become comfortable, and then be comforting.

The equitable enforcement of the law is the only legitimate law enforcement.


Application for employment with the Powhatan Sheriff's Office should be made using only the Sheriff's Office specific application. Complete the application and then print for submission. The application requires notarization; therefore it cannot be returned electronically. Do not submit the county's application found under the Employment Opportunities web page, as it is not acceptable for our purposes.
