I was sworn in as Sheriff of Lincoln County on November 5, 2010. I have been Chief of Police for two Lincoln County Communities during the past 40 years. Throughout my career, I have gained invaluable experience in human resources, budgeting, grant writing, and departmental administration. I hold an Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate with C.L.E.E.T., Certificate from OSU on County Training Program, and Oklahoma Sheriff Academy.

For the past 10 years in office, I have ensured that the Sheriff’s Office has been run in a professional manner.

I have an award-winning staff of highly trained professionals with a deep desire to serve.

I am very proud to be an OSA board member. I am the President of the Lincoln County Law Enforcement Association. I am very proud to have been selected 2016 State of Oklahoma Sheriff of the year by the Oklahoma Sheriffs Association and Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Law Enforcement Individual Award.
