Roane County Sheriff – Jack Stockton

The mission of Roane County Sheriff’s Office is to maintain social order and provide professional law enforcement services to citizens in the community, within prescribed ethical, budgetary, and constitutional constraints. This department strives to enforce the law and maintain order in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing the need for justice, and consistent appearance of justice.

The Sheriff recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves. This department actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to assist in bringing to justice those that break the law.

Five-Point Star Management System

During my career of working in and with county governments, I discovered that often times we are overwhelmed by the many different demands and challenges that face us each and every day. I focused during the campaign on a 5-Point Star System of management which would give our administration some direction for the future.

Under the Sheriff’s Direction

I am truly proud to lead “Roane County’s finest.” We are committed to providing responsive, quality, cost effective service to the citizens. We work in partnership with various agencies throughout the community, believing that collaboration is the key to solving problems for our citizens.


Throughout 2020 we have rotated our Covid positive staff and officers in and out of quarantine. We have managed to keep our Corrections, Patrol, and CID divisions operable, and able to respond to any emergency. Thank you for your patience, and support. If you need us, we'll be there.

Special Thanks

Special Thanks to Gwen Hill and her mother Vontella Whalen for the snacks and drinks they provided for our deputies and staff!
