I would like to congratulate Sheriff Krieg on his retirement and thank him for his many years of civil service.  I am looking forward to fulfilling my role as the Acting Sheriff after 19 years of service within the office.  My goal is to continue to serve the citizens of Elk County with the same degree of efficiency, integrity and impartiality as has been the foundation of the office throughout my tenure.  I am striving to advance the office through training and technology to keep up with today’s increasing demands.  I look forward to serving the citizens of Elk County and thank you for your continued support.

Theresa L. Merritt, Acting Sheriff
