CLINTON – The Clinton County Sheriff's Office and jail will be closed Monday while administrative offices move to the new Law Enforcement Center, Sheriff Rick Lincoln announced Thursday.

All offices will resume normal business hours Tuesday. 

Following the move, certain areas of the Sheriff's Department are no longer accessible at the former law center. Residents will have to use the east entrance, or Second Street entrance,  to the Clinton County Courthouse for the following services: civil division, gun permits, accident reports, Seniors vs. Crime, sex offender registry, records check or detective services, fingerprints for employment or certification.

The current jail will re-open for jail visitors and court-ordered fingerprints Tuesday, Lincoln said. To access the jail, residents should enter the east door by the parking lot and dial extension 4508 using the tan phone in the lobby.
