Support Services

The Support Services Division of the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office is directed by Captain Chuck Litton. Currently, 4 deputies and 5 clerks are assigned to this division. Deputies are responsible for the service of legal process to Buchanan County residents. Each deputy serves a geographical area.

This division handles all incoming warrants and the validation and computer entry of those warrants. We are responsible for maintaining hard copy warrant files, confirming warrant inquiries from outside agencies and scheduling out of state extradition for the Transport Unit. We also handle protection orders, both maintaining hard files and the computer entry and validation of protection orders issued under Missouri’s Adult Abuse statutes or Child Protection statutes.

We also file and issue permits to Buchanan County residents, including permits to carry a concealed weapon. We also conduct court ordered fingerprinting and maintain inmate files.
