Sheriff’s Office During Covid-19

The Campbell County Sheriff Office administrative locations are closed to walk in traffic and face to face service because of various building and office closures due to Covid-19. We are collaborating with all County offices to provide what services we can to the best of our abilities during this difficult time.

The Sheriff Office locations affected:

At this time, we are not performing many of our administrative services that require close contact with the public.

Paying your county taxes there are several options for you to use:

  1. Mail in the tax stub with a check for the correct amount enclosed
  2. Go to any Heritage Bank with the correct amount enclosed
  3. Go online to:  follow the instructions to pay with a credit card (extra fees are access by the credit card service provided)


  • If you have received a notice that there is a paper that needs to be served on you, please call and coordinate with our staff to receive this paper.

Vehicle Inspections

  • While the County Clerk’s Office is closed, we will not be doing vehicle inspections.


  • If you need to apply for a new or renew a CCDW license, please utilize the Kentucky State Police website to do so. If you need to pick up a permit, please call the office to see if arrangements can be made for you to receive the permit once it is delivered to our office.

! ! ! SCAM WARNING ! ! ! The latest method being reported for 2020

The Sheriff’s Office will NEVER call you and ask you to pay ANYTHING over the telephone to resolve any legal document, warrant or other issue. 

Scammers are at it again, and are now using our address of 1098 Monmouth Street and our main telephone number. The current complaint we have heard about is that the caller will state that your Social Security Number has been compromised and payment must be made via the caller for the Sheriff to resolve the issue. Most people should know that the Sheriff’s Office has nothing to do with correcting such an issue, but the callers are sometimes very convincing.

Remember, if in doubt, hangup and call the Sheriff’s Office during regular business hours to confirm if the situation is real. NEVER give out your social security number, date of birth or personal information unless you dialed our office yourself.

Sheriff’s Office does not collect money in anyway to make legal documents or warrants go away. Be alert! Be suspicious when you are receiving the call.

Lastly, our Offices are only open from 8 AM to 4 PM so if you are receiving a call after those hours, it is definitely not us.

Last Day To Pay County Property Taxes


December 31st, 2019 is the last day to pay County Property Taxes before late fees apply.

Although our office is closed on December 31st as it is every year, you can still pay your taxes without a late fee by postmarking it on or before the 31st, or you can pay them at any Heritage Bank in the area. Heritage is open on New Year’s Eve.

Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10, Cops and Kids 2019


Sheriff Mike Jansen and Deputy George Schreiner were proud to participate in this year’s Cops and Kids program that our FOP Lodge provides every year. 55 total children we provided a hot breakfast, then shopping with law enforcement officers from all over Campbell County. There were photos with Santa, a wrapping party and lunch afterwards. All in all a great day was had by all.

2019 Campbell County Citizen’s Academy

Donation Letter


Some Campbell County Residents may receive a donation letter for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Association Boys and Girls Ranch.

If you received a letter in my name asking for a donation for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Association Boys and Girls Ranch, this is a legitimate letter that I approved to be sent out. The Boys and Girls Ranch is a wonderful program and we send a group of boys and a group of girls from our county each summer. The children pay nothing to go to the Ranch.

Below is a copy of the letter that was mailed out. Clicking on it will allow it to be seen full size.

I thank you for your consideration.

Mike Jansen
