About the Sheriff

Joel Brott

This Web Site was designed to give Sherburne County residents access to information regarding their Sheriff’s Office. It is very exciting to have the ability to use technology to reach people effectively. Citizens having access to up to date information is essential to building a successful working relationship between law enforcement and the community.

I would like to introduce myself to those of you who may not know me yet. My name is Joel Brott. I was born and raised in St. Cloud, MN. I graduated from Apollo High School in 1990. I wanted to work in public service so I attended Alexandria Technical College and earned my Law Enforcement degree in 1992. I also graduated from the National FBI Academy in 2007.

I started my career in Southwestern Minnesota where I worked as a police officer and Chief of Police. I began working for Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office in 1996. Sherburne County has been a wonderful place to work and I am very proud to be a member of this community.

My wife, Julie, and I have three sons ages sixteen, thirteen and ten; we live in the west end of Sherburne County.

I look forward to serving the citizens of Sherburne County to the best of my ability. I know that we will continue to be a strong and successful community in the years to come.

Thank you for the opportunity to work for you as your Sheriff.

Joel L. Brott
