2019 Annual Report


Welcome to our second annual report covering the 2019 calendar year at the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.

We’ve implemented a number of important changes over the course of the past 12 months and are proud to have brought this agency up to 21st Century standards in several key areas including: Mental health and wellness training, less lethal weapon usage, new uniforms, bullet-resistance vests, newer vehicles, investigation and FBI LEEDA training, transformational detention programs and more.

One of the most significant changes we made this year was to issue sidearms to deputies for the first time in the history of the agency. The new Glock handguns are Generation 5 weapons with advanced technology that has increased our shooting accuracy. Also new this year is Rangemaster Shon Elroy who has worked with us to train everyone on the converted less lethal shotguns and the new handguns. His expertise and our commitment to training will increase life safety for our deputies as well as those we protect and serve.

Multiple Cleveland County deputies and staff were recognized this year for life-saving and meritorious service to the community by the Oklahoma Sheriff’s Association and through the media and private organizations.

It is my belief that we have the finest people in the state serving this agency, and while we have lost some of that talent this year either through retirement or because they received offers that took their careers to the next level, we have also gained some gifted and dedicated deputies and staff who were drawn to the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office because of the remarkable things our team is doing here.

This annual report is one aspect of the commitment to transparency and accountability we made to the public we serve. We do not work alone. Our efforts are in partnership with other organizations, agencies and individuals throughout the county — like our Handle with Care program implemented in cooperation with area schools or the Public Safety Sales Tax approved by voters in November.

To each and every one of you, God bless and thank you for allowing us to be of service.
