Statement from Sheriff Rosie Rivera

Jon M. Huntsman Sr. was very dear to my heart as he was my biggest supporter and mentor. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. He was kind and devoted to helping others. He was a true example of integrity, honor and faith. I have cherished his advice and wisdom throughout the years. I feel blessed that he was able to attend my swearing in as Sheriff, it was apparent that he was not feeling well but he made it a priority to be there. I will always be grateful for his friendship and support. I am so blessed to have known him. My love and prayers go out to Karen, Markie and all the Huntsman family.

Sheriff's Office Is Hiring Sheriff Deputy I and II

Sheriff Holiday Message

I would like to wish all our residents a safe and happy holiday season. I want to thank our community for your support. Also, I want to thank our Deputies and Civilian staff for all the excellent work they do every day. Their professionalism and dedication does not go unnoticed. The Sheriff’s Office is proud of the relationship and partnership we have with our community. We understand that to be successful in public safety, we need your help through working together and partnerships. This past year, the Office of the Sheriff has had some challenges with the Rio Grande Operation, lack of jail space, and a shortage of applicants who want to work in the corrections field. We have been able to overcome the challenges through teamwork and dedication to the office. As your Sheriff, I have promoted two Chief Deputies: Chief Deputy Matt Dumont to oversee our Jail Operations and Chief Deputy Jason Mazuran in our Protective Services Bureau. I believe these two new appointments will help us move forward and accomplish remarkable things in 2018. I look forward to working in partnership with our counterparts in law enforcement and our communities in the new year!
