December 29, 2020 was a successful coordinated effort to get Sgt. John Lenz back home where he will continue to recover. Thank you to all the local public service agencies and the community who showed their support for our Douglas County Sheriff's Office Sergeant. 

We are grateful he is still with us, for the care he received, and to see him smile as he was warmly welcomed home!

To those who took their oath, respond to calls, protect and serve our communities at all costs, we appreciate you every day.
