Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office News

Beginning tomorrow, we will be testing the Cheyenne Wells sirens every Wednesday at 10 am. Testing is expected until further notice. The fire siren is a slow up and down "wail" and is used to notify the volunteer fire department The tornado siren is a "wail" that goes up and stays up continually. This is activated if there is a tornado sighted in or around Cheyenne Wells. The "all clear" siren is an up and down quick "pulse" siren that is used to give the all clear after the tornado siren is sounded.

Thanks for all you do for the citizens of Cheyenne County

In preparation for the upcoming tornado season we’re posting the annual CodeRed update for Cheyenne County residents. CodeRed is an emergency notification platform that delivers geo-targeted and time sensitive messages across different channels including: telephones, text messages, email and social media. Certain situations are dependent on alerting the community regarding: severe weather, hazmat, missing persons or evacuation orders. If you would like to receive notifications during these situations, please visit the link below. For the CodeRed app visit either link depending on what phone you have. IOS - Android - CodeRed works for LAN lines and cellphones; as long as you’re in the targeted area that you selected for your address then you will receive notifications for that area only. If CodeRed is unable to verify your address, you will have the option to use the map given to pin-point your location. If you have any questions regarding CodeRed or how to setup a notification please give us a call and we will assist you. Thank you, Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Office

One of our residents recently received the email posted below. Please do not open any links if you receive an email like this. This email has an attachment and tells you there is a password to get into the document. DO NOT open the attachment. This is just another scam.

On behalf of the Sheriff , myself and the entire patrol division we would like to give a big shout-out to the Prowers County Sheriff's Office for sending officers up to help us with our active shooter training today. Also for our volunteers; Erica Kern, Brian Welch, Jeff Little, Chandra Little, Stacey Sponsel and Andrew Maxcy for your time and assistance today. Also to the school staff and administration for letting us interrupt your in-service day. Without your time and effort today none of this would have been possible. Also to DOW Officer Todd Marriott. Thank you all
