In May of 1874, Lee County was established from Washington, Burleson, Milam and Fayette counties. Today the sheriff's office covers 644 square miles with an approximate population of 16,742 (2014 census). The sheriff's office is responsible for primary law enforcement services of the unincorporated areas of Lee County. Lee County also works cooperatively with other area law enforcement agencies including Giddings Police Department, Lexington Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Lee County Constables and all area fire departments and emergency services. In 2008, a new facility was built that houses the sheriff's office, 107 bed jail and 24/7 communications center along with emergency operations center.
Lee County Sheriff's Office recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at the maximum potential without the support of the citizens that it serves. To accomplish this goal, the sheriff's office solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens.
