El Dorado Arkansas elections

Meet Ricky Roberts

Current Office: County Sheriff

Ricky Roberts

I have been in law enforcement for 30+ years serving the citizens of El Dorado and Union County for 28 of those years.

I began my police career in 1985 with the Pine Bluff Police Department and in 1987 I joined the El Dorado Police Department. Over the next 26 years I have served as patrol officer and criminal investigator rising through the ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain and then was appointed El Dorado Chief of Police in 2000. I served as Chief for 13 years before retiring.
After retiring I joined the Union County Sheriffs Office where I serve as Chief Investigator. Most of my adult life has been committed to serving and protecting citizens of our community.

I'm a law enforcement officer not a politician. I'm not going to make promises that I can't keep. However, If elected I will give you 100% each and every day in our efforts to reduce crime.
