On Tuesday (Dec. 5), the Clark County Council approved two budget requests to add seven new deputy sheriff positions to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO).

These are the first new deputy sheriff positions added to the Sheriff’s Office in over 15 years. These positions will be vital for executing the CCSO’s mission to protect and safeguard the community. 

Here is a breakdown of the Sheriff’s Office Enforcement Branch staffing heading into 2024, compared to 2008. The numbers listed below for 2024 include the additional seven deputy positions.

Year20082024
Sworn Personnel (Authorized)157153
Patrol Population206,830249,167
Deputies/1,000 Residents0.760.61

As our service population continues to grow, the seven new deputy positions will provide a much-needed resource of additional staffing. In the Enforcement Branch, we currently have 19 deputies who are not yet deployable because they are in some stage of initial training. They are either waiting for the academy, attending the academy or in post-academy field training. 

“The Clark County Sheriff’s Office wants to thank the Clark County Council and the County Manager’s Office for supporting these positions and voters for supporting the Public Safety Sales Tax, which will fund these positions,” said Sheriff John Horch.

CCSO continues to hire and train new deputies and looks forward to the day that our agency is fully staffed and able to provide the highest level of service to the community. 

The seven deputy positions become available beginning on January 1st, 2024.
