Mayes County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website


The Mayes County Sheriff’s Office launched a new Website on May 15, 2017 where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Sheriff’s Office. The new Website will serve as an information resource for the public.


The new Website, www.MayesSheriff.org, features press releases, messages from Sheriff Mike Reed which are updated frequently, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff’s Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.


Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. Our intent is for every County resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to submit a crime tip, how to locate sex offenders and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff’s Office. We believe the Website is a huge benefit to the Sheriff’s Office and the residents of Mayes County.


Other features of the Website include:


Alert Notifications – allows the public to sign up for alert notifications from the Sheriff’s Office via email or text – including sex offender notifications, press releases, messages from the Sheriff, and most wanted updates.


Social Media Links – allows the public to follow the Mayes County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook.


Most Wanted Listings – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.


Sex Offenders – allows the public to view photos and information for sex offenders living in the county.  The interactive map feature on the Website allows the public to view sex offender locations on the map, view offender photos and profile information about the offenses.


Jail – Access links for scheduling visitation, phone time and inmate's commissary.


MostWantedGovernmentWebsites.com by Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, Inc. of Mountain Home, Arkansas, developed the Website. The firm specializes in Website solutions for law enforcement and government offices.


For more information about the Website please contact the Mayes County Sheriff’s Office at 918-825-3535 or visit www.MayesSheriff.org.
