My Goals as Sheriff
Drug Use and Trafficking is a problem in Delaware County. My goal is to work with neighboring counties, Federal, City, and Nation law enforcement agencies to the fullest of our ability to serve the residents of Delaware County and make it one we can all call home.
As Sheriff, I want open communication lines between our office, communities, schools. Nothing is more important to me than the children and future leaders.
Since taking office, Mark Berry has increased the number of deputies on duty, our deputies’ response time, and timely follow-ups on initial calls to the Sheriff’s Office.
