Sheriff Michael Elmore
My name is Michael Elmore and I am the 43rd Sheriff of Addison County.
I was born in Middlebury and have spent the majority of my life here in Addison County. I graduated from MUHS in
2012 and attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC where I earned a degree in Criminal Justice, graduating in 2016.
While in college, I spent about 4 years working as a security officer for the University, becoming a Master Patrolman (mid level supervisor).
After graduation, I worked as a security guard at the Shelburne museum as well as a Federal security guard through a contractor for various
Federal buildings in the northern part of Vermont. In 2017, I married my college sweetheart, Rose, and we began living together in Addison.
Shortly before we got married, I started my career in law enforcement after being hired by the Addison County Sheriff's Department. I attended the
Level 2 (or "part time") certification course in June of 2017, and continued my training over the next few months. In February of 2018, I attended the
level 3 (or "full-time") 16-week certification course at the Police Academy in Pittsford. After graduating from there in May of 2018, I hit the ground running.
I was promoted to Corporal in February of 2019 which gave me more responsibilities, including supervising other deputies. In December of 2019, I received a
promotion to Sergeant. My tasks and obligations have only grown since then, and I have been able to learn a lot as a police officer and leader within the department.
