The Leadership We Need.

Pima County is a region of over 9,000 square miles and home to over one million people.  The Sheriff's Department provides safety and security of our lives, families, and our property.  Our community deserves  to have a leader they can count on and trust.   We need Nanos! 

Meet Chris Nanos

Chris Nanos went into law enforcement when he was 20 years old, and in it found the sense of service to community that would come to shape his life and define his career. 

During his tenure as Sheriff he earned the respect and loyalty of the Department he led.  View his accomplishments below to see why:


"It is imperative that a collaborative relationship exists between law enforcement and the community it serves.  Sheriff Nanos' leadership style employs this ideology in ensuring crime reduction."

-Dennis DeConcini

United States Senator

“Sheriff Nanos has a passion for working with the vulnerable youth in our community.  His support and work with programs like Youth on Their Own, Casa's Alitas and the Boys and Girls Club goes a long way in helping not just the youth of this community, but the community as a whole.”

-Dick & Nan Walden, Owners of FICO & Green Valley Pecan.

“For decades now, I have had the pleasure watching Chris Nanos develop and mature from line level, in-the-trenches, street policing to establishing progressive and professional law enforcement policy.  His leadership qualities cultivate productivity and motivate creative thinking. This is necessary in the era of community policing.”

-Clarence W. Dupnik,

Pima County Sheriff
