A Proven Sheriff



Since I assumed office in 2015, it has been my privilege to lead the dedicated men and women of the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office. Working as a team, and through their hard work and professionalism, we have been successful in implementing a reorganization of the Sheriff's Office based on merit, achievement, and leadership, and in upgrading the Sheriff's Office’s technology resources to keep pace with ever-increasing public safety and criminal justice system needs.


To judge our level of success and accomplishments over the past three years, the people of Sweetwater County need only check our record. It has been an honor to serve as your Sheriff, and I would welcome the opportunity to continue leading our committed professionals in their most important duty: protecting what you value most.



Prior to my election as Sheriff of Sweetwater County in 2014, I served a total of 32 years with the Rock Springs Police Department, rising through the ranks to serve as Chief for 12 years. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and an Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts, with emphasis in Criminal Justice, and I served with the United States Marine Corps both on active duty and as a member of the Marine Corps Reserve. My wife Virginia and I have six children and 14 grandchildren, with another on the way.
