A Message From the Sheriff

When I ran for Wagoner County Sheriff, I vowed to exemplify the core concepts of integrity, transparency, accessibility and accountability to all citizens of Wagoner County. In keeping with that vow, I’m proud to launch our newly-designed website, which we hope will improve communication by providing up-to-the-minute information about safety and security in your neighborhoods.


In order to serve citizens, modern Law Enforcement organizations must be progressive, forward-thinking and willing to learn and grow. Combined with my 30-plus years of professional law enforcement experience and training, the innovative spirit of the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office staff gives residents and constituents access to the helpful tools and resources you need to keep your loved ones safe, right at your fingertips. My priority is to lead by example, and to be a champion for employee innovation so that we can better serve you.  That means being better stewards of taxpayer funds by investing in cutting-edge technology that enables us to work smarter, rather than harder; all to improve your quality of life.


Under my leadership over the past two years, we have upgraded our fleet of vehicles, invested in less lethal weapons for deputies and detention officers, purchased a records management system, expanded our K9 division, introduced a law enforcement drone program, hired additional deputies and detention officers, and most importantly, provided additional training to all our employees.


I am continuing to guard the taxpayers’ money, while embracing the philosophy of learning to accomplish more with less.


Recognizing Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office cannot police this county on its own, I believe fostering and maintaining partnerships is also vitally important. Working with all law enforcement organizations, city and state agencies, my fellow elected leaders of the county, school officials and houses of worship, we strive every day to provide efficient, effective, fair and equitable law enforcement for our community. We hope you will regard the launch of our new website as just one step toward that goal.
