Mark Lamb is the Sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona, the creator of American Sheriff Network, author of “American Sheriff,” and a frequent media guest.
Sheriff Mark Lamb was born and raised in Hawaii, but his roots are firmly planted in Chandler, AZ where he graduated from Chandler High School in 1990. After owning several businesses and then moving back to his hometown of Chandler, he became a police officer for the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Reservation.
During Academy, Lamb was valedictorian of his Academy class. He went on to become Rookie of the year as an officer. In the subsequent years, Lamb was named Officer of the Year and then Detective of the Year. He served on the SWAT Team and was a very successful gang and drug detective who, alongside federal and local partners, took down some of the most dangerous gangs operating off of the reservation. Lamb later moved to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office as a deputy.
His love for his country, the Constitution, and the people of Arizona compelled him to run for Sheriff, which he did successfully in 2016. He has loved every minute of being Sheriff.
During his first term, Sheriff Lamb has been able to accomplish all he set out to do and more, due to cooperation with the other County leaders, command staff, and fantastic deputies. He is a proven advocate and proud supporter of our Constitution and will continue to publicly defend it.
Sheriff Lamb and his wife, along with their five children, have made San Tan Valley home for the past 13 years. As Sheriff, he focuses a lot of time on youths in the community and supports activities that help them grow into dedicated, successful adults. Spending time in schools, successful jail programs for veterans, young offenders program, and his Youth Redirection Program are just a few of the successful programs that have thrived under his leadership.
When the Sheriff has some rare downtime, you can find him enjoying football, spending time with his family, or planning a family trip to a beach. He hopes to inspire people to “Fear Not, Do Right” and have love in their heart for the United States of America, as well as bridge the gap between Law Enforcement and the community through service. His latest projects include authoring the book, “American Sheriff”, and launching the “American Sheriff Network” online.
