About the Dearborn County Sheriff's Department

The Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department (Indiana) is organized into several classifications: Administration, Sworn Officers, Reserve Deputies; Special Deputies; Detectives; Hidden Valley Rangers; Jail Officers; and, the Special Crimes Unit.  During 2006, the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department handled over 9,000 calls for service. The Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center was built between 1990 and 1991. The sheriff when the building was built was Sheriff Russell Cunningham who was completing his second four-year term when the facility was built. The new facility was built on the west end of High Street, replacing the old jail that was located just next to the courthouse.


The Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center is a 200+ bed facility that also accommodates the sheriff's department. The Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center has 24-hour-a-day surveillance cameras that keep a constant eye on both the inside and outside of the facility. In addition to the above listed offices, there is also an attached sally port where inmates are unloaded from vehicles. The sally port is completely secure and keeps inmates from fleeing an officer and trying to escape while being escorted from the police car to the jail. The Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center is equipped with computers and other modern-day equipment in order to keep the facility an up-to-date law enforcement building.




A special deputy and school resource officer for the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department, Ronald M. Schunk, is the author of mystery novel Retreat.   A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Ronald M. Schunk has been a volunteer, reserve or part-time police officer for the Dearborn County Sheriff's Department, Sunman Police Department, Milan Indiana Police Department, Addyston Police Department, Colerain Township Police Department and Hamilton County Ohio Sheriff’s Department.  In addition to his reserve, volunteer and part-time police work, Schunk has owned his own business and retired from ATT&T after 32 years.
