Incumbent Deryk Wyatt, first elected in 2010, will seek reelection as Stewart County Sheriff in the August 7 General Election.

As Sheriff, Wyatt has made a number of improvements  to the Sheriff’s Office:

  • school resource officers placed in every school
  • additional  investigator to assist with crime investigations
  • new radio system to better communicate with all emergency personnel
  • new  911 system,
  • police car computers and video recording system
  • participation in the Governor’s Highway Safety Program
  • acquisition of over $4 million in equipment through a federally funded reutilization program

Wyatt worked with county commissioners and architects to cut $4 million off the bid for a new county jail while ensuring it will meet all state and federal regulations.

A  lifelong resident of Stewart County and of Wyatt’s Chapel United Methodist Church, he has served in law enforcement for 26 years, including  20 years with the Stewart County Sheriff’s Office.

He and his wife, Dawn Carmen Wyatt, have been married for 27 years and they have two children, Rachel Wyatt, who is attending U.T. Martin, and Luke Wyatt, who attends Stewart County High School.
