Our mission is to provide responsive, professional, and caring law enforcement services to all the people of Merced County. We will respond to calls for service promptly, protect lives and property to the very best of our abilities, initiate and maintain crime prevention programs, and apprehend criminal offenders.
We will maintain correctional facilities and operate correctional programs in the most efficient and effective manner possible. We will be diligent in our role as Coroners to protect the rights and dignity of those who can no longer speak for themselves.
As Merced County Sheriff/Coroner employees, we will always conform to the high standards expected by the public, by being fair, compassionate, unbiased, and in conformance with the "Law Enforcement Code of Ethics."
