Statement From Donnie
Every time anyone asks me about being Sheriff, I remember what the late Jim Graham, Commissioner of Agriculture would say –“I love my job.”
When I was sworn in as Wake County Sheriff, I vowed to be a working Sheriff, and I have been. I work the road, show up at calls, check in with the detention staff, go on drug raids, and accompany detectives as they interview cases. I want them to know that I am proud to work side by side with them.
By being a hands-on Sheriff, I know first-hand what our officers as well as the citizens of Wake County need from this Sheriff's Office. We have implemented positive change in this Office and we will continue to look for innovative and cost effective ways to serve and protect Wake County citizens.
I consider it an honor and a privilege to be the Sheriff of Wake County and would like the opportunity to continue to serve the citizens of this county.
