Sheriff Chris Amason names Scott Sedbrook Cleveland County Detention Chief Deputy.
After retiring from Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office following a 27-year career, Sedbrook accepted a position offered by Sheriff Amason to lead the Cleveland County Detention Center.
“Scott Sedbrook has a very impressive resume. His long law enforcement career with Oklahoma County includes serving as an Assistant Jail Administrator, and his knowledge of the interworking’s of a large detention center were exactly what I was looking for to fill our Chief position.” Sheriff Amason said.
Sedbrook started at the detention center on Dec. 6, 2021, with a tour of the facility.
“I am very impressed with this facility and the caliber of employees here at Cleveland County. Sheriff Amason and I share a goal of being not only the best in the state, but the best in the nation. In my first month, I have been reviewing policy and procedures and making a few adjustments that align with the vision the Sheriff and I have.”
Sedbrook says he has plans to change the style of leadership at the detention center to not only allow for more accountability but also instill within our detention officers the quality traits of a true leader.
Sheriff Amason says he is excited about the future of the facility under the direction of Sedbrook and is eager to see all Sedbrook's plans fall into place.
