The Gogebic County Sheriff’s Office vows to continue a centuries old commitment to provide professional law enforcement services to all citizens of Gogebic County.

The Sheriff and his Deputies are responsible for enforcement of federal, state and county laws, including local ordinances.  We investigate crimes, accidents, and apprehend criminals.  The Sheriff also operates the county jail including dispatching for emergency services such as fire and ambulance.  The Sheriff’s Office serves at the pleasure of the courts, provides security, serves civil process, enforces court orders, and warrants.  Through contractual agreements, the Sheriff’s Office provides primary law enforcement services to both the Cities of Bessemer and Wakefield and the Gogebic Iron County Airport during scheduled flights.  The Sheriff's Office provides court ordered transportation service to Gogebic County Community Mental Health patients at various institutions both in and out of state. The Sheriff's Office also employs a part time animal control officer partially funded through a tax payer voted animal control millage.
