The Sheriff’s administrative staff consists of the Chief Deputy and five Captains, which represents all the law enforcement divisions.  In addition, the Administrative Services Manager and Operations Manager are also part of the administrative staff, representing the non-sworn divisions.

The Sheriff and his administrative staff meet regularly and work closely together to address the needs of the Sheriff’s Office.  We discuss applicants for hire, promotions, and other personnel issues.  This team approach is very beneficial and has proven to be effective in dealing with the daily challenges that we face, providing superior law enforcement that the citizens of Johnston County deserve and have become accustomed to.
