The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department is the chief law enforcement agency in the county. Established on March 30, 1846, we operate the seventh-largest jail in the United States with an average jail population of over 6,000 inmates and more than 2,000 employees. Unlike municipal law enforcement agencies, sheriff deputies have jurisdiction in all areas of the county, including the other 32 cities in the county.

Message from Marian Brown, Dallas County Sheriff

Greetings,

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.
