This is a short biography of Ben Wolfinger. I thought you would like to know more about this man and the contributions he has made over the years. I personally think he stands head and shoulders above the other candidates.  Pictured above are Ben Wolfinger and wife Mary.

Ben has been with the Sheriff’s Office since April 1, 1983.  Ben worked in the Jail, Patrol and Detectives while he worked his way through the ranks until his promotion to Captain in April of 1995.  Since 1995, Ben has commanded all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office. Ben was appointed to the rank of Major in 2009. Ben’s current duties include managing the Support Services Bureau, dealing with Special Projects and performing as the Department’s Public Information Officer.
