Message From The Sheriff


Welcome to 2023. I want to start off by saying thank you for the support, and the support of our office this last year.

It was a busy year, with some change. As of December 30th, 2022, Sheriff Meehan has retired. Thank you Sheriff Meehan for your service to Broadwater County, and enjoy retirement! I was elected in November of 2022. I took office January 1st, 2023. I am looking forward to serving the citizens of Broadwater County.

At the beginning of January, we have started our lunch with a cop program, and are working on spending more time in the schools. I am going to be working on a few other changes within the office.

In January we have promoted Mark Wood to Captain. We also have hired a new Deputy. Welcome to the team Chase Rasmussen. We will be promoting a Sergeant soon, and continuing to put people in the right positions to serve the citizens of Broadwater County.

As 2023 progresses the Broadwater County Sheriff's Office will do our best to serve the citizens of Broadwater County. Thank you all for the continued support!
