Vacation House Checks

The Moffat County Sheriff's Office wants to make the county residents have a worry free vacation. Residents can call in before leaving town and provide information about your absence from your home. Deputies will routinely check your home during your absence.

Ranch Watch Program

The Ranch Watch Program is more of a philosophy that a regimented program. Sheriff Hume encourages deputies to stop and meet the people we serve. This will help develop relationships between the citizens of Moffat County and the Sheriff's office.
