Background checks and fingerprinting will be conducted at the office Monday-Friday from 9:00am to 3:30pm.
The Sheriff's Office uses the computerized Webcheck system to perform background checks for employment purposes. Webcheck allows for quicker processing of fingerprint processing. Under certain circumstances, the Sheriff's Office may have to use the BCI and FBI cards for rolled fingerprinting. All costs are the same.

Payment must be made payable to the Meigs County Sheriff's Office by money order or certified/cashier's check at the time of service. Personal check and cash is no longer accepted. If using credit/debit cards, there will be a service fee.

Project Lifesaver is an active response to the problem of locating people who may not be able to find their way home before they become victims. The average rescue time is less than 30 minutes. A lost person with any kind of dementia or a development disability is unaware of his or her situation. They do not call out for help and do not respond to people calling out to them. The Project Lifesaver Team is trained to approach a person with Alzheimer's disease or developmental disability, gain their trust, and put them at ease for the trip home.
The Meigs County Sheriff's Office offers House Checks for Meigs County citizens when they are away. If you would like to apply for a House Check, download the form below and deliver to Dispatch.
