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.


History

The Addison County Sheriff Department was established in the late 1700's and has been at it's current location since being built in 1845 to include a jail. The jail had been in continuous operation from 1845 until 1971. The jail was re-opened in the mid 1980's and closed after the expiration of a federal contract in May of 2011. Since then, the space has been renovated and is home to additional office space and a small gym for Deputies to use to work out. The Addison County Sheriff Department currently has 14 full and part-time Deputies serving the Addison County Community.
