During his career with the Sheriff’s Office, he has been a patrol deputy, member of the Special Crimes Unite, Detective, K9 Sergeant, Patrol Lieutenant, Criminal Investigations Bureau Lieutenant, and Administrative Services Captain. He now serves as Commander of both Law Enforcement Services Division and Administrative Services Division.
In all of the positions he has held with the Sheriff’s Office, Commander Dartt’s goal has been to improve public safety in the community he considers home. As a result, he has received more than 200 subpoenas for defense interviews, evidentiary hearings and trials, leading to numerous convictions for everything from drug sales to homicide, including a 2021 conviction in a cold case homicide which occurred in 1988.
He is the recipient of the Sheriff’s Office Medal of Merit and a Purple Heart after being shot in the line of duty in 2002, during an arrest for domestic violence.
