Welcome to Washington County Sheriff's Office

Update on Law Enforcement Center services during COVID-19

The Sheriff’s Office is extending the closure of the Law Enforcement Center to June 13, 2020. This modification was made to limit the possible exposure of the public and our employees to COVID-19. 

This will mean a change in gun permits, civil process, fingerprints, inmate visiting, and predatory offender check-ins. 

Permit to Carry applications will be taken by appointment only. Call 651-430-7600 or email sheriff@co.washington.mn.us

Starting on May 18th, any Mortgage or Lien Foreclosure sales will be held in the LEC main atrium at 10 a.m..
