A Message from Sheriff Wayne Coats

The Harnett County Sheriff's Office website's main objective will be providing citizens with information about the Sheriff's Office. We will also be releasing information to the public about criminal suspects and missing person cases. Our goal is to utilize all resources to enhance law enforcement for Harnett County citizens. We welcome your input, as well as assistance, which you may render to solve community problems and crimes.

I have placed much emphasis on crime prevention efforts such as community/neighborhood watch programs and encourage you to please contact us to initiate such in your community. The efforts of the Sheriff’s Office combined with your involvement are the key to successfully keeping Harnett County a safe place to live, work and raise our families.

Sincerely yours,

Wayne A. Coats
Sheriff of Harnett County
