SHERIFF MARIAN BROWN
If we join together and make our voices heard,
DALLAS (Sept. 18, 2023) – Incumbent Dallas County Sheriff Marian Brown announces she will seek re-election in 2024. First appointed in December 2017 by Dallas County Commissioners, Sheriff Brown went on to be elected in 2018 and 2020, and now will seek her second full term. During her tenure, Brown has worked closely with state and municipal law enforcement on coordinated efforts to fight crime. She has also focused on operations at the Dallas County Jail, guiding the jail system through a difficult time during the COVID-19 pandemic, and taking steps to ensure the jail successfully passes inspection, most recently in April 2023. Brown is the first African American sheriff in Dallas County history.
In June 2023, it was announced that Brown had successfully worked to maintain accreditation for the jail system’s inmate health services from the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. She is in the process of planning a series of gun buybacks around the county to combat gun violence.
“I am proud of the work we have done, especially during the difficult days of COVID-19. We are daily focused on our jail operations, and we are doing all we can to make Dallas County safer,” said Sheriff Brown. “I am honored to have strong support from those who know my work and commitment to serve.”
