About Us


SheriffWebsites.com by Lighthouse Web Designs provides custom, full-featured websites to Sheriff’s Offices in the United States.

Lighthouse Web Designs was opened in 2006. Initially, the founder/owner, Richelle Anderson, was inspired to open the company when she saw how much small business owners were being charged for a website. Soon after opening, the local sheriff’s department reached out and needed their website updated. While speaking with them, she learned that county sheriffs face the same challenges; they need more website than their tight budgets would allow.

We have been working with our local Sheriff since 2007, during that time, we have learned a lot about the demand and needs of local sheriffs and how a website is vital for their department to communicate with the areas they serve. We went to work and developed a platform that fills these needs and meets the requirement of affordability to most sheriff’s offices.

Lighthouse Web Designs created SheriffWebsites.com to cater specifically to the needs of county sheriff offices. Our company is primarily led by Richelle and Ashley Hopper (IT Manager). We also employ 50+ freelancers, and each brings a specific skill set to the Lighthouse team. Our freelancers are comprised of writers, graphic designers, IT specialists, and more. This business formation allows us to provide affordable solutions for our clients while helping our freelancers.

You will not be shuffled around at Lighthouse either. Richelle or Ashley will always be your primary contact with the company. This level of customer service is what we were built on and has earned us an excellent reputation since opening our doors.

As with our small business clients, we strive to work hard for EVERY sheriff’s office we work with and provide a custom solution built around their size and needs.

We look forward to working with you!
