Mark A. But­ler, Sher­iff


Sher­iff Mark But­ler is pleased to announce that the War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office is the 1st agency in the Com­mon­wealth to make Cit­i­zen Con­nect avail­able to the com­mu­ni­ty. Cit­i­zen Con­nect is an appli­ca­tion from South­ern Soft­ware, Inc. that pro­vides a host of ser­vices for our com­mu­ni­ty to see.  This is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to increase trans­paren­cy, pro­vide more con­ve­nient cus­tomer ser­vice and ensure bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion with our res­i­dents.  Start­ing today May 30, coun­ty res­i­dents will be able to receive auto­mat­ed crime noti­fi­ca­tions using the free Cit­i­zen Con­nect Appli­ca­tion.  You can sign up for these ser­vices through our web­site.  This Appli­ca­tion pro­vides the fol­low­ing online services:

  • Dai­ly Reports – A list­ing of Arrest, Inci­dent and Acci­dent Reports will be avail­able to the pub­lic. This is what is com­mon­ly referred to as the “police blot­ter” and will keep res­i­dents bet­ter informed as to the inci­dents around their homes, busi­ness­es, or routes of travel. 
  • Inci­dent Reports – An abbre­vi­at­ed report may be down­loaded by Inci­dent Num­ber, Date Range, Name or Loca­tion. Please note that there will be no nar­ra­tive includ­ed. Per­sons wish­ing to obtain the more com­plete report will still be required to file a Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion request with our office.
  • Want­ed Per­sons – A list of the most want­ed peo­ple will be made avail­able to the pub­lic in this search­able database.
  • Miss­ing Per­sons – A list of active miss­ing per­sons reports will be post­ed. Once locat­ed, these reports will be closed and can no longer be seen on the web­site. This will be help­ful in keep­ing the pub­lic aware of endan­gered peo­ple, with the intent to locate them quicker.
  • Anony­mous Tip Line – Allows res­i­dents to report a tip with­out leav­ing their per­son­al information.
  • Sub­mit a Report – This allows our cit­i­zens to sub­mit non-emer­gency reports that do not require a response from a Deputy imme­di­ate­ly.  These include dam­age to prop­er­ty, lost prop­er­ty, harass­ing phones calls. 

Don’t for­get to sign up for our crime alerts.  You can do this by going to the left-hand cor­ner of the web­page and click­ing on the red box “Alerts Signup”. 

Wel­come to Cit­i­zen Con­nect! Cit­i­zen Con­nect is the place to go when you are look­ing for infor­ma­tion regard­ing inci­dents, acci­dents, miss­ing and want­ed per­sons, and more. Please be aware that some infor­ma­tion is redact­ed or has not been made avail­able to the public.

Infor­ma­tion is updat­ed every 24 hrs. This does not mean that your inci­dent or acci­dent will be avail­able that quick­ly. There is a process that all reports must go through before they are able to be loaded to Cit­i­zen Con­nect.

To find a copy of a crash report, please go to the sec­tion labeled Acci­dent Search. For an inci­dent report, please go to the sec­tion labeled inci­dent search.
For the Dai­ly Reports func­tion, please go to the sec­tion labeled Dai­ly Report. Dai­ly Report is an option to view all report­ed activ­i­ty over the pre­vi­ous 5 days. You can see Inci­dents, arrests, Miss­ing Per­sons, and accidents.
