Sheriff Dave Hencratt

I began my law enforcement career in 1988 and have spent my entire career with the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office.

Since taking office on January 3, 2011, we have accomplished everything we set out to accomplish. We have established respectable alternative custody/inmate work programs and an inmate work farm.

I am still proud to be associated with the men and women that make up our organization.

Our people are well trained and well equipped to deal with the always present criminal element of our society.

We are moving forward with a sixty four bed addition to our jail as a result of being promised jail construction funding from the State of California.

We will continue to dedicate our energy and resources to making Tehama County a better place to live and work.
