It is the goal of the Brown County Sheriffs Office to provide quality law enforcement to the citizens of Brown County. It shall be our duty to rise above the “old style” type of law enforcement of being “reactive” and “complacent” thus becoming “proactive” officers that protect and serve Brown County in a productive and professional manner. We shall also become “coactive” with the community and in this role will improve the quality of life for the Brown County citizens.
