Message from the Sheriff Most Wanted Fugitives Locate Registered Sex Offenders

Cherokee County, Kansas, which encompasses over 587 square miles, was organized in 1866 and borders Missouri to our east and Oklahoma to our south. 

Over 21,000 residents proudly call this home and find it to be a great place to raise their families. 

Throughout Cherokee County, you will discover dozens of public hunting, fishing, camping and hiking areas maintained by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. 

And, in addition to numerous museums and historical sites, like our Veteran’s Memorial Park, Big Brutus and Heart of the Heartlands Locomotive Museum, many of the cities located in Cherokee County host annual celebrations and festivals, which highlight our rich and vast heritage, providing something for everyone!

One of the most frequently visited historical sites, “Rainbow Bridge,” is the last surviving Marsh Arch Bridge located along “The Mother Road.”

Whether you live in Cherokee County, are visiting or merely passing through, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office will strive to exceed your expectations and allow our core principles of Integrity, Teamwork and Vigilance to guide our actions in order to provide a high quality and professional service to those we are proud to serve.
