April 25, 2018 – With 25 years in law enforcement, combined with his experience in the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, Bill Smethers has proven himself an exceptional leader and has gained the endorsements of ten Northern California Elected Sheriffs.
Sheriff Keith Royal – Nevada County
Sheriff Tim Standley – Sierra County
Sheriff Kory L. Honea – Butte County
Sheriff Steven L. Durfor – Yuba County
Sheriff Adam Christianson – Stanislaus County
Sheriff Willian F. Honsal – Humbolt County
Sheriff Tom Bosenko – Shasta County
Sheriff Richard L. Warren Jr. – Glenn County
Sheriff Douglas A. Binnewies – Mariposa County
Sheriff Jon E. Lopey – Siskiyou County
These law enforcement leaders have chosen to stand behind Bill in his bid for election to the position of Nevada County Sheriff because of his experience within the Sheriff’s Office. It is a strong testament that these leaders who serve our neighboring communities all agree that Bill is the right choice as our next elected Sheriff.
Bill has proven fiscal, administrative and personnel management experience in patrol procedures, jail operations, court security, criminal and coroner investigations, search and rescue, animal control, school safety, drug enforcement and public administration.
He has managed 170 employees and over 100 volunteers within the Sheriff’s office.
Our neighboring Sheriffs understand the caliber of leadership and experience Bill brings to the Office of the Sheriff and welcome the opportunity to work with him in the future.
