Dear community members, 

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office 2020 Annual Report is now available for viewing online at In this report you will find information about every division of the Sheriff’s Office. 

As we look back on the year 2020, I can’t help but reflect on how our 300 employees have assisted this county in navigating a pandemic, civil unrest, Public Safety Power Shutoffs, and devastating wildfires, all while making it their priority to carry out the values of the Sheriff’s Office. Our mission is to protect and serve our community and to earn the public’s trust through compassion and accountability. The men and women of the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office carry out this mission daily, sacrificing much to protect our community.

This publication is only a snapshot of what the Sheriff’s Office accomplishes daily throughout the county. There are things that deputies do every day to make a difference that go unnoticed, and we pride ourselves on that. The Sheriff’s Office is blessed to have the community’s trust and support.

In 2021 we continue our pursuit to partner with the community to solve problems and make Humboldt County a safe place to live, work, and recreate. If you are interested in learning more about the Sheriff’s Office or volunteering to help with our mission, vision, and values, please visit our website at, like us on Facebook @HumboldtSheriff, or follow us on Instagram @HumboldtSheriff or Twitter @HumCoSO.
