On Tuesday January 15, 2014 the DeKalb County Board proudly recognized Sheriff Roger Scott for a monumental achievement, 45 years of continued service to the citizens of DeKalb County. Sheriff Scott began his service in the Communications Division. In those days the Communications Division was also charged with overseeing the Jail, so in-between taking police calls he was also making rounds in the jail. He was then transferred to the Patrol Division and worked up through the ranks before becoming Sheriff in 1985. During this time the Sheriff’s Office has seen many changes and Sheriff Scott has accomplished many things, some of which are listed below:

  • Combined 9-1-1 Communications Center
  • Sheriff’s Citizen Police Academy
  • President of the Illinois Sheriff’s Association 2005-2006
  • Drug Investigation Partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
  • A Founding Member of the DeKalb County Major Crime Task Force
  • Sheriff’s Special Operations Team (SOT)
  • Founder of the Sheriff’s Canine Program since 1974
  • Electronic Home Monitoring (EHM)
  • Police Contractual Service for Kishwaukee College and Kishwaukee Hospital
  • Domestic Violence Grant-States Attorney/Sheriff
  • Vehicle Deployment Program
  • National Sheriff’s President’s Award 2010
  • Location Equipment for Special Needs Individuals (CARE-TRAK)

Thank-you Sheriff Scott for your service, continued leadership, and dedication to the Sheriff’s Office and to the citizens of DeKalb County.
