Rice County Sheriff Administration


The Sheriff’s Administration is comprised of the Sheriff, Chief Deputy, Lieutenant, Emergency Manager, Jail Administrator and Jail Program Coordinator, Administrative Assistant and eight line staff supervisors who take various administrative assignments. The Rice County Sheriff’s Office subscribes to the Total Quality Management business model thereby flattening the hierarchal management structure giving more responsibility, decision-making authority and ownership to a greater number of internal stakeholders.
Two and ½ clerical assistance provide technical support to the Sheriff’s Office. They coordinate, classify, and process all data associated with the calls for service generated through the Consolidated Dispatch Center. The records staff ensures that all records are processed according to MNJIS (Minnesota Justice Information Systems) requirements and within the Sheriff’s Office procedures. Other duties include entering citations, warrants, and data entry of all information into the in-house RMS (Records Management System), e-charging, e-filing, and various other agencies requirements. The records staff assists with walk-in citizens, various requests, public fingerprint processing, tow releases, report requests, and provide reception duties to all incoming non-emergency phone calls.
