Experienced Leadership


    Sheriff Scott Rose, who grew up in Dodge County and raised his family here, is very proud to have had the opportunity to be involved in Dodge County Law Enforcement since 1996; initially as a member of the Sheriff’s Posse, then as a part-time Patrol Officer with the Kasson Police, a Dodge County Dispatcher, a Dodge County Patrol Deputy, and an Investigator.

    In November of 2014 Scott was elected as Dodge County’s 26th Sheriff.  

    Scott is actually the third of four generations law enforcement officers in his family. Scott’s grandfather from North Dakota was a Special Deputy for the Divide County Sheriff’s Office in the 30s and 40s. His father, Bob Rose, was a law enforcement officer for over 30 years in Dodge County both with the Kasson Police Department and Dodge County Sheriff’s Office. Finally, the fourth generation is his oldest son Eddie, who is a State Trooper in Colorado.

    “The best executive is the one who has enough sense to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
    – Theodore Roosevelt

    “I love this community! I grew up in Dodge County, raised my family in Dodge County, and am very proud to be a second generation Deputy Sheriff for Dodge County. This is my home.”

    Scott’s background is unique in that he has over 10 years of experience in marketing, management and business ownership, both prior to and during his law enforcement career. Experience that the Sheriff’s Office has benefited from time and time again with the various programs and departments Scott’s been involved with since starting there.

    With this website, Scott will share his history, his work experience, his family, and many of the positive changes and improvements that he’s lead since being elected Sheriff in 2015.  

    Thank you in advance for your consideration and your support in the November Election!
