After one year leading the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Darin Balaam, describes the year as fast and rewarding. Balaam touted the office’s achievement in holding two successful community resource fairs. He said they nearly doubled in size. During his first week at the helm, Balaam faced a major challenge with the quadruple murders in Washoe and Douglas counties. Balaam said that a strategy for collaboration with other departments will be used as blueprint moving forward.
