I want to welcome you to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office website.

I was appointed Sheriff on June 1, 2018.  Then, after a successful campaign I was elected to the Office of Linn County Sheriff on November 6, 2018. It is an honor to serve as your Sheriff and I look forward to continuing the services we provide on a daily basis.  I have been a part of the Sheriff’s Office family for over 25 years.  In my years of service, I have held every level of leadership, worked in three different divisions, worked for four Sheriff’s and was a longtime member of our Dive team.  I bring a broad range of experience from developing policies, preparing the office budget to investigating all levels of crime.

I have been married to my wife, Angie, for 24 years and have two adult children.  As a family, we enjoy sports, camping and anything outdoors.  We also enjoy any kind of competition.

The mission of the Linn County Sheriff’s Office is “Keeping the Peace with Dignity, Honesty and compassion”.  We work hard every day to ensure the outstanding quality of life our citizens enjoy, is maintained.

I hope you are able to locate what you are looking for within the pages of our website.  If not, please do not hesitate contacting me.
