The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office has proudly served the citizens of Kennebec County since 1799. Through those 200+ years the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office metamorphosed with the changing times. The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office is a full service sheriff’s office consisting of 120 employees. We operate the Kennebec County Correctional Facility with a maximum population of 131 inmates. We embrace the concept of Community Policing. All law enforcement agencies must realize that they can’t ebb the tide of violence and drug abuse without collaborating with their communities on plans to stop these criminal activities. The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office is committed to developing collaborative relationships with the municipalities it serves with the knowledge that when we work together we really can make a difference.
We are proud to be a leader in both the law enforcement and correctional fields in the State of Maine. This leadership is demonstrated by establishing Maine’s first TRIAD in 1993, and developing alternative sentencing programs like Thumbs-Up and OUI Weekends, which save tax payers’ money and provide much needed public service projects to municipalities.
Thanks for your continued support,
Randall A. Liberty, Sheriff
