Sheriff Adam Infante

Sheriff Infante is a competent and highly-committed leader whose resume includes a 23-year law enforcement career in the Dallas County Sheriff's Office where he has been dedicated to the people who live and work in Dallas County. 

Preceding his appointment as Sheriff in 2022, Sheriff Infante served as the Chief Deputy for eight years. The Chief Deputy serves as the acting Sheriff in the Sheriff's absence and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the entire Sheriff's office. Before being appointed as Chief Deputy, Sheriff Infante served in the positions of patrol deputy, detective, and was appointed to serve in a special assignment with the Mid Iowa Narcotics Enforcement (MINE) Task Force. Three years of his service were dedicated to the nationally recognized Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Task Force, where he assisted in several high-profile cases throughout the United States. Sheriff Infante is a graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy’s 271st session. This elite program admits less than one percent of all law enforcement officers. 

“I am ready to continue my leadership of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office as we navigate through the growing pains of a rapidly growing county, and a changing law enforcement and threat landscape,” said Sheriff Infante. “We will continue to recruit and retain the best law enforcement professionals, and maintain the highest standards of Dallas County. With the help of my outstanding staff, I am firmly committed to a mission of ethical, effective, and impactful public safety.”
