As most of you know, I am currently the Deputy Sheriff of Sheridan County and have served as the Deputy Sheriff since early 2019. I am in my 18th year in the public safety field and j started serving as a first responder in 2003 initially in EMS, fire and now law enforcement. I love having the opportunity to interact with the community on a daily basis while building and maintaining relationships and partnerships with various organizations and agencies in the county.

Outside of my career in public safety, I was elected and served as a Sheridan city councilor on various boards, including the Juvenile Justice Board. I graduated from Sheridan CIVIC Leadership in 2013 and currently sit on the Sheridan Youth Baseball Board of Directors and am also a member of the Big Horn Lions Club. My wife Melissa and I have two boys, Will and Brody, who are very active and we love to explore the Bighorn Mountains with our dog, Dudley. My family is an important facet of my successful 18 year career in public safety, which has given me the opportunity to teach Family Survival as a Visiting Instructor at Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy to every class. base of peace officers. The course helps prepare new law enforcement officers and their families for a first responder family life.
I am more than grateful for Sheriff Thompson’s guidance, leadership and service to Sheridan County and hope he enjoys his retirement. Sheridan County will benefit for years to come because of Allen’s leadership and community involvement. I am thrilled and honored with this opportunity to serve Sheridan County, to pursue a community-driven approach in serving residents and visitors to Sheridan County, and to support and facilitate career and leadership development for our staff at the sheriff’s office.
