Message from Marian Brown, Dallas County Sheriff


I am honored to serve as your Dallas County Sheriff.

I bring to bear thirty years of law enforcement knowledge and experience. Twenty-five of those years have been spent in various levels of police leadership: from the sergeant on the street; to the lieutenant over the watch; to the community relations officer at the crime watch meeting; to the investigations commander on the crime scene, to the assistant chief preparing the annual budget.

I grew up in Dallas County, and was educated in Dallas Public Schools. I have a personal interest in Dallas County and the things that affect our community. I am grateful to have the chance to serve in a leadership role in the place where I grew up as someone who was not as fortunate as others; but also in a place where, as an adult, I’m able to understand the desires and the needs of families who have broken cycles and desire to enjoy lives.
