A Message from Tim Dunning

sheriff dunning at his deskI am informing you of my intention to run again for Re-Election as your Douglas County Sheriff.  In January of 1995, I was sworn in as your Douglas County Sheriff and I promised to serve in the best interest of our County. 

During my tenure, as promised, we have made public safety more efficient by merging our communication technology with all public safety agencies in Douglas County.  This means that all Public Safety agencies, Police & Fire, can communicate with each other on a daily basis as well as during critical incidents.

We have taken steps to protect our children by developing a Cyber Crimes Task Force to track down individuals who use the Internet for crimes against our youth. I have also been a leader in addressing Human Trafficking in our community and state with my involvement in the Governor and Attorney General's Task Forces on Human Trafficking as well as our local Coalition on Human Trafficking of which I am a board member.

We currently subcontract our Crime Lab services with a multi-county area to include many Federal Agencies. We have received national accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and ANAB specifically for our Crime Lab and separately for our Crime Scene Investigators. CALEA represents the best law enforcement practices in North America.  ANAB is the leading forensic accreditation body that accredits agencies to international standards. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is the only Sheriff's Office in the State of Nebraska to have received such recognition from both Accrediting bodies and one of six Crime Labs in the world to hold dual accreditation to international standards.

Another important noteworthy accomplishment is that in my 23 years as your Sheriff, my agency has never been over budget. And in fact, in the past seven years we have been able to hold our budget requests to an average of no more than 2.4% annually.

I am asking for your financial help for this upcoming campaign season. As you know, a successful campaign requires television and radio advertising, signage, and brochures, and all of this requires funding.

I enjoy working as your Douglas County Sheriff and I hope to serve our citizens for another term, however, I cannot do it without your help.

I hope I can count on your support for the 2018 election year. I have sincerely appreciated your support in the past. If there are any issues important to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
