The new look for the Ripley County Sheriff vehicles saved thousands of dollars on tax payers' money. Sheriff Cumberworth and his deputies chose to change the color of the Ripley County Sheriff's Deputies patrol cars. The traditional two tone brown paint would have cost the county, not only to special order the cars with the base tan color, but also to paint the dark brown onto the cars after they arrived. This gives the Sheriff's Office not only a new look but also saves money. The cars will be driven by Sergeant Corky Houseworth and Sergeant Abe Hildebrand, who have both been faithfully serving the community for numerous years.




Sheriff Cumberworth has implemented a road work crew that will be walking the county roads of Ripley County picking up trash. The Sheriff plans to do this program throughout the year when time is available. The program is for inmates who are low risk, nonviolent, and have already been sentenced. The inmates are monitored by a jail officer at all times.

Jail Administrator Robert Curl and Jail Officer Winston Halcomb were eager to get the program started on Thursday, May 14, 2015.

Just a reminder to the local motorists, please be conscious of your speed and be aware of your surroundings in a marked work area.




April 22, 2015, Ripley County Sheriff's Office received a report from a county resident stating they received a phone call from a Ripley County Lieutenant trying to gain access to personal information. The county resident also stated that the Ripley County Sheriff's Office phone number showed up on the caller I.D. These scams try to scare you by stating there is a warrant issued for your arrest.

Please remember never to give out your personal information or send money to anyone unless you know them personally. If you have any questions you may contact the Ripley County Sheriff's Office at 812-689-5558.
