Sheriff's Office home page
with new poll feature highlighted

     The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce that it has today launched a new feature to its website (  A new poll has been added and will appear on the center left side of the home page.  There will be a new poll with a new topic shown there each week.

     The Sheriff’s Office will use the poll as another way to inform and educate the public on a wide variety of topics related to the Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement, and local government.  It will also be used to assist the Sheriff’s Office with short and long term planning.  This will be accomplished by presenting ideas to the public through the poll, and the public can then utilize the poll to express their opinions on any number of current topics or issues.  It is the intent of the Sheriff’s Office through these polls to promote public feedback to give the Sheriff’s Office a general idea of which way the majority of the public may view a particular issue or question.

     The polls will be either email or IP specific, meaning that only one vote per email or IP address entered will be accepted.  This will prevent multiple votes being cast by one person which would tend to skew the results of the poll.

     This is just another way by which the Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the public in an effort to further promote transparency in local government.
