Shannan Moon understands what it will take to maintain an effective Sheriff’s Department, and maintain our quality of life here in Nevada County.”

She has a talent for reaching across divisions to find common ground, shown in her work with local stakeholders on cannabis, jails, and mental health.”
“Shannan is a pragmatic, compassionate problem-solver: focused on the issues, intelligent, prepared, and responsive. Her leadership and her integrity as the next Sheriff will help bring the community together, and help move the NCSO forward.”
