A message from Sheriff Chris Eaton

As the Sheriff of Barren County, I appreciate you taking the time to visit our website. It is one of my top priorities to keep the citizens of our great community informed of what is occurring in our county through this website and the local news media. We are able to build upon important relationships that will enhance the safety of our community through sharing information with our citizens. Our mission at the Barren County Sheriff Department is to protect and serve the citizens of our county. To this end, we must all work together to prevent crime and strive for a drug-free Barren County.

I take great pride in serving as your Sheriff. I consider it an honor to be able to work on a daily basis with the fine men and women of our department, helping keep Barren County the number one rural community in which to live in the United States.

Please feel free to call me anytime I can be of service to you. My door is always open and I will never dismiss any idea or suggestion that will help strengthen our office and improve our service to you.

Thank you and may God bless you,

Chris Eaton, Sheriff of Barren County
