Welcome to the Porter County Sheriff’s Office website. We are happy
to give you an insider’s view of our operation. If you are not
familiar with the many facets of our duties and services I think you
will have a better understanding of the scope of our
responsibilities after browsing this site.
You may also enjoy getting to know our employees and their areas of
expertise. We could not be more proud of the level of
professionalism that they bring to public safety in Porter County.
Every job here is demanding and we believe each person has equal
value to the way the Sheriff’s Office is run.
We want this site to be interactive and useful to you. If you have a
question about any issue that concerns our office, please feel free
to contact us. Likewise, if you have an idea that could improve our
website or if you would like us to provide a new service to the
community we encourage you to let us know about it. Our product is
service. We are constantly looking for ways to improve, and we value
I have strived throughout my career as a police officer to form a
bond with the community I serve. This website is only a small
illustration of that goal. If you have a clear view as to what we
are trying to accomplish, if you get to know us on a more personal
level, if we can “demystify” what goes on inside our (your)
building, then I am convinced you will find a greater comfort level
when dealing with the Porter County Sheriff’s Office.
Thank you for visiting and most of all, thanks for your continued
David E. Lain
