A Message From The Sheriff
Sheriff Steve L. Durfor
“Thank you for visiting the official web site of the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office. On behalf of all employees we appreciate your interest
in our department. We at the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office take very seriously our role as public servants. We exist to serve and
protect every member of our diverse community. We are committed to providing the highest level of professional, efficient and
effective service to every resident, business owner and visitor to our county. Our mission is to build a safe community across
the entire expanse of Yuba County.
Yuba County was established in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties when California became a new state in our nation. As the 27th Sheriff of Yuba County, I will ensure every member of our office carries on the tradition of protecting and serving our community as we have for more than 150 years. We serve our community in providing law enforcement, emergency dispatch, corrections, civil, coroner, public administrator and animal care services.
We are facing very exciting, yet challenging times in Yuba County with unprecedented growth in our valley and foothill region. We are ready to confront and adapt to these changes to ensure we provide the highest quality of service.
If you are interested in a career in law enforcement, I encourage you to apply with us. We are seeking dedicated, public service minded individuals. I am certain you will find joining our team as rewarding and experience a great sense of pride in being a part of such an honorable profession.
I welcome and value your opinions and thoughts on how we are doing in serving you and our community. Our success depends on strong community partnership. You may contact me at (530) 749-7779 or through the community comments section of our website.
I appreciate you taking the time to inquire about our agency. I am honored at the opportunity to serve you.”
