Mike Kreke

In my capacity as your Sheriff, it is my responsibility to oversee law enforcement throughout Clinton County.

All personnel of the Clinton County Sheriff's Department are committed to maintaining a high standard of proactive law enforcement. With assistance as needed from the Illinois State Police, city and village police officers, Corps of Engineers and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources personnel, my goal is to provide a safe environment for all residents and visitors to our county.


The Clinton County Sheriff's Department provides 24-hour full service protection throughout the county. The Sheriffs Department takes pride in its facilities, equipment, and well-trained professional personnel. Linked by state-of-the-art computers and radios to all police departments within the county, the Sheriff's Department can provide or request assistance as necessary to respond to emergency situations. Education and Crime Prevention are key missions of the department. Two fully qualified D.A.R.E. instructors and the department's new "canine officer", Marco, spend countless hours working with young people in schools throughout the county.


My personal goal is to serve all citizens of Clinton County fairly and equitably. Comments and suggestions can be forwarded to my attention at any time. Visitors are welcome to visit my office in the County Jail Complex to discuss any concerns they may have. By working together, Clinton County will continue to grow and prosper as a safe, secure environment in which to live, work, and enjoy leisure time.
