Bill Brown
Sheriff - Coroner

Santa Barbara County

An elected official, the Sheriff - Coroner is the county's chief law enforcement officer, with overall command of the department.


Welcome to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office website where you can learn more about your world-class Sheriff’s Office.  Every day more than 700 regular employees and more than 200 volunteers provide essential public safety services in a wide variety of disciplines including front line law enforcement, custody, protection in our courts, coroner, aviation, investigations, and administrative support. 

The dedicated men and women who perform these roles are members of one dedicated team that has been --as our motto says- “Keeping the Peace Since 1850.”

It is my privilege and honor to serve as your Sheriff.  On behalf of all the members of this agency, I want to thank the citizens of Santa Barbara County for your ongoing support.
