New Hires, Promotion, and Returning Faces

  • Lt. Dukes on his promotion from Investigator to Lieutenant. He will be working in the jail as a shift supervisor having already served as a shift sergeant prior to being an Investigator.
  • Sgt. Clark left us a few months ago to join the new Douglas County School System Police Department, and was deputized by Sheriff Pounds.
  • Dep. Amdal on his return to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. He will be on patrol once again after a short training period.
  • Jailer Dodd is a familiar face, in a good way, and joins us as a Jailer.
  • Jailer McDonald is new to law enforcement. He is pursuing a life-long goal of being a law enforcement officer, and we are happy to have him.
  • Dispatcher Worsham is another fresh face, and will be working in Radio.

Congratulations, New Deputies

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff would like to congratulate our two newest deputies: Eduardo Mora and Justin Roberts. Both have been with us for the past few years serving as Jailers. We’re especially proud of Deputy Roberts who earned the top academic award.

Congratulations, Deputy Curtis

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff would like to congratulate Deputy Paul Curtis on his recent graduation from Mandate. He started with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Jail Division last December, and graduated Mandate on July 31, 2020. The US Air Force Reserves had to “borrow” him for a few weeks after his graduation, and we appreciate his military service. Becoming a law enforcement officer has been a life-long goal for Deputy Curtis, and we hope to have him with us for many years to come.

Congratulations, Deputy Jenkins!

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff would like to congratulate Deputy Jamisen Jenkins on her recent graduation from mandate. She was awarded the Distinguished Student Award for academic excellence. Dep. Jenkins is a familiar face to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office having interned with the Evidence Division last summer. She was then hired as a jailer before going through mandate. If you or anyone you know is interested in a career in law enforcement, please make sure to check out our employment page!

Happy Retirement, Sgt. Hambrick

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff would like to congratulate Sgt. Jesse Hambrick on his retirement. During his 20-year career with us, Sgt. Hambrick was assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division before moving to the SCOPE Division. He was supervisor over our School Resource Officers and was also involved in the Beyond Scared Straight program. For the last few years, Sgt. Hambrick has also been our Public Information Officer. His willingness to speak to the public about the dangers of drugs and the pitfalls of social media will be missed. We wish him well on his next endeavor.

Congratulations, Alisha!

Alisha Whiteley is another DCSO long-timer who recently decided to retire after 20 years of service.

Twenty years has certainly gone by way too quickly, and we will certainly miss having her around the office!
