How the Niobrara County Sheriff's Office can assist you.
We have tried to make our website as informative as possible for victims of crime. We cannot give you specific details once a person is released from jail and their whereabouts.
Our Jail Detention Center is tied to a VINELINK, you can use this service to see if a person is still in our custody. Please do not depend solely on this system for protection.
When a person is released from jail, they will likely be under bond conditions. These bond conditions can tell a person to stay away from you and make no contact. Should they violate these conditions you must call law enforcement immediately! If you feel threatened by the possibility of contact please meet with a Victim Witness or Helpmate Advocate for assistance.
