Sheriff’s Message, Week July 10th

Community Friends,

It’s that time of the year when we get prepared for over 10,000 people to descend upon Mason Valley for the annual Night in the Country Music Festival next weekend. While we were extremely critical last year as it related to public safety, we had a meeting with the leadership and expressed real concerns. We also provided viable options, such as hiring a business that specializes with this type of event. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week July 3rd

Community Friends,

Sadly, protests have erupted across this nation, not in solidarity at stopping the violence directed against police officers, but at inciting more anti-law enforcement rhetoric. As the elected Sheriff of this county, I believe I have a responsibility speak out. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week June 19th

Community Friends,

What do you to say to an employee who has served the last five Lyon County Sheriffs, especially when they decide to retire after 29 years?

Sheriff’s Message, Week June 5th

Community Friends,

One of the greatest community fears is a school active assailant. In a chaotic environment, people will look for leadership to restore order while stories of heroism emerge from within the scene.
