Sheriff Dean Growdon
One of my favorite pics was taken last December when Dean graduated with a Master of Justice Management degree from UNR, of course the family was there, looking as proud as can be. This had to be a lot of added stress, full time job, family and pursuing a Masters. Why? He said it was for personal and professional growth but also to show his kids it can be done.
I wanted to know what makes our Sheriff’s department such a stand out. I can feel the respect and concern they all have for each other. Sheriff Growdon says it’s their culture. They look at what they CAN do, not what difficulties they face. When a position needs to be filled they hire LoCaLs that care about our community, a person that will make their team better.
Sheriff Growdon is definitely part of the team. More than willing to get goofy and have fun but never give up who he is at the core.
What can we do to help? There is a lot of misinformation out there, Dean encourages you to check it out for yourself, learn what’s really happening from the Deputies, and get this, you can go on a ride along! Even cooler, I can go on a ride along!! Applications are available at the Sheriff’s Department.
We are so Hometown Proud to have Sheriff Dean Growdon! Thanks for all you and your entire department do for all of us every, single day!
