Message from Sheriff Armstrong
As your Sheriff, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Shelby County. During my Law Enforcement career I have had the privilege to meet many of our great citizens and become involved with them and their individual communities. I have been a lifelong resident of Shelby County and have always viewed Shelby County as one of the greatest places in Kentucky to live and raise a family. When I started my Law Enforcement career in 1990 as Chief Deputy of the Shelby County Sheriff Office, I was following in my father’s footsteps; he also was a Deputy Sheriff for Shelby County in the 1970’s. I knew that the Shelby County Sheriff Office was the Law enforcement agency that I wanted to spend my entire career with. During my first year as Chief Deputy I worked hard for the citizens of Shelby County and was honored by the Kentucky Sheriff’s Association as Kentucky’s Deputy of the year in 1990. During my career I always had the goal to someday be the Sheriff of Shelby County. The residents of Shelby County helped me reach that goal in 2002. Now as your Sheriff it is my commitment to provide the citizens of Shelby County with the best possible Law Enforcement services. Since being elected as your Sheriff I have provided Shelby County with five additional officers, implemented two detectives for investigations, and provided deputies with advanced technology to help fight crime. Please feel free to contact me at anytime via phone, email or by dropping by the office. My door is always open to the public for praise, criticism, or concerns.
