New Chief Deputy Named in Stearns County Sherrif's Department
New Chief Deputy Jon Lentz

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson recently appointed a veteran officer to the rank of Chief Deputy.

Jon Lentz was promoted to that role last week. Lentz started as a Correctional Officer with the Sheriff’s Office in 1991. He was made a Deputy Sheriff in 1997, promoted to Sergeant in 2003, to Lieutenant in 2007, and to Captain last year.

Gudmundson says as Captain, Lentz was in charge of the Patrol and Investigation Divisions. The Sheriff says he has lots of  things to accomplish in his 19-month term as interim Sheriff and it made sense to promote an inside candidate who knows the issues, personalities and the citizens of the county to be the next Chief Deputy.

Lentz holds a Bachelor's of Arts in Criminal Justice from St. Cloud State University.
