“What’s New in County 22?”

As you may have seen recently in the news, we have been extremely busy at the sheriff’s office with some recent search warrants that yielded several tools and equipment believed to have been stolen in the area.  If you have some tools that were stolen, please contact us to schedule an appointment to possibly identify them.

The Board of Supervisors recently implemented a resolution on March 5th, 2018 for 90 days, or until rescinded, that puts a ten ton weight limit on certain areas of roads in Clayton County.  If you absolutely need to go overweight on those roads, please contact the Clayton County Engineer, Rafe Koopman, at (563)245-1782 for written permission to do so.  If you don’t have written permission from the County Engineer when an officer stops you, you may receive a citation and have to pay a penalty. Here is list of the roadways;

We have also purchased a few window tint meters for the deputies.  We have been seeing an increase in tinted windows in the area. The percent of visible light allowed through your car window is called VLT (Visible Light Transmission).  In Iowa you must allow more than 70% light into the vehicle. This refers to the windshield and front side windows. The rear window and rear side windows may be as dark as you wish.  

The month of April is nationally recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.(SAAM)  Officers will have teal colored magnetic decals on their squad vehicles during this time to recognize this event.  The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office has been involved with the regional Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) in our area.  If you are a victim of sexual assault and would like some resources please visit;


If you have any questions, or comments, feel free to contact me anytime, e-mail me, or stop by to see me.

Thanks and be safe,

Sheriff Mike Tschirgi
