I have been a resident of Nye County since 1965.  As a member of the community I understand the need for community oriented policing.  I have a strong desire for the community that I live in and serve, to have pride in our Sheriff's Office.  I desire to have the Nye County Sheriff's Office proactively patrol our communities in order to prevent crime.  

I am committed to building bonds within our community to ensure open communication between the residents and those that serve to ensure the public's trust.  

I am dedicated to maintaining the safety of all who live, work, visit or travel through Nye County.  

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.
