PSA on road conditions north of Potter. We've had a lot of wind north of Potter that has caused county roads in that area to blow and drift shut. The county graders are out working to clear them now, unfortunately all three of them are stuck in snowdrifts themselves right now. Most of the roads in that area impassible at this time. Please avoid travel in this area if you can. If you must travel on them, please use slow speeds and be cautious when entering drifts so that you do not become stuck yourself. Thank you and as always, be safe out there.
Adam E. Frerichs, Sheriff

When seconds can change an outcome, our deputy's rigorous training hours and countless continual education makes all the difference. With that being said, the Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office is proud to announce that on July 5, 2022, Deputy Zachary W. Goodrich was recognized by the State of Nebraska for his successful life saving efforts on May 20, 2022. He was presented with a Life Savers Certificate and a Challenge Coin by survivor Denise Nelsen.
They Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office is grateful for the Helmsley Trust which provided grant money to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services who then made it possible to equip all our Deputy's vehicles with AEDs. Without this equipment and this program, saves like this would not be possible.
Our office would like to thank everyone who took the time to come to the ceremony and congratulated Deputy Goodrich on a job well done.
Combined Public Communications and the Cheyenne County Jail can provide an option to inmates to rent an inmate Chirping Device. The Inmate gets a dedicated phone number and device to directly Chirp friends and family. When the inmate gets the device they may send 5 free automated messages each day for the first 3 days of possession of the Chirping device. These automated messages will inform the person the inmate Chirped who is sending the Chirps and the facility they are Chirping from. It will then ask them to go to a direct link to the inmate's account on the inmatesales.com website. The inmatesales.com website will instruct them to use a credit card to put money on the inmate's account. If the inmate has not been successful on obtaining money in 3 days, they will have to return the device to facility staff.
What is a Chirping Device?
The device is enclosed in a protective enclosure. The device is locked into use for Chirping, the inmate cannot access any other apps or services. The device is location aware and may not leave the facility. The device is secured with a PIN which must be entered by the inmate anytime they want to wake the screen.
How do I pay for it?
Funds may be added to the inmate's account at anytime using the inmatesales.com website.
