2020 will bring a new era for Fort Bend County as Sheriff Nehls has announced he will not be seeking re-election for a third term.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office has been home to Sheriff Troy E. Nehls since 2012, when he won the election for Fort Bend County Sheriff.
Prior to his election as Sheriff, he served two terms as the elected Constable of Fort Bend County Precinct 4. He has over 24 years of law enforcement and began his career in his home State of Wisconsin.
Sheriff Nehls is proud of his accomplishments since becoming Sheriff. One of the most notable is the 65% reduction in Residential Burglaries. "We aim to make you feel safe and secure in your home and when traveling around Fort Bend County," says Sheriff Nehls. "We are one of the safest counties in the greater Houston area and I am very proud of that."
A topic near and dear to Sheriff Nehls are the Fort Bend County jail's educational programs. "We have to set the inmates up for success, because in my opinion the criminal justice system is broken in some areas, and I think re-entry is one of them," says Sheriff Nehls. "Let's do something about educating them by affording them opportunities to keep them motivated and focused on the future."
Sheriff Nehls is very proud of the fact that the Inmate Vocational Center is funded without the use of taxpayer dollars. "All of the vocational training programs are funded through inmate commissary."
Another important matter that Sheriff Nehls wants to address is the crisis with mental illness. The number of people who die by suicide in Fort Bend County is on the rise. "We can do more," says Sheriff Nehls. "We must strive to do better for one another and for our communities.
There is so much to be grateful for but also so much to work on.
As Sheriff Troy E. Nehls famously says, "We live in the greatest Texas County out of the 254."

Sorry to see this. Will miss him. Hopefully whoever gets elected can continue keeping our burglary rates low.
