Howard W. Niemeier is Sheriff of Bracken County, Kentucky. He has been in office since January of 2011 and is working on his third term in office.
In Kentucky, the sheriff is responsible for the service of civil and criminal process, the service of warrants and the important task of security throughout our court systems. This office assures the citizens that the competency of our deputies continues as we have ongoing training
and qualification resulting in certification each year.
As representatives and citizens of this community, we make
every effort to create a harmonious, working relationship
with our sister law enforcement agencies and to assist
in maintaining a cohesive contract with our community
while implementing a safe and secure environment.
Vital to the prosperity and continuing growth of our
county, the sheriff has the duty of collecting and
distributing county taxes. As each year passes, we
enhance our technology and procedure in these
collections attempting to make the process as
comfortable and convenient as possible.
