Your Sheriff

Sheriff Michael D. Booth

Mike Booth moved to Pottawatomie County in 1971, a community he immediately came to love. He attended McLoud High School while concurrently studying at Gordon Cooper Technology Center, graduating in 1974.

Upon graduation, Mike joined the U.S. Navy and spent nearly 5 years aboard the destroyer USS Hull where he became the shipboard damage control division supervisor. On August 1, 2002, Mike retired from the U.S. Navy with over 22 years of service to the United States of America.

In 1986 Mike became a member of the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Reserves. Soon thereafter he decided to pursue law enforcement full time as a deputy moving through the ranks, including Detective and Captain.

Following the September 11th attack on America, Mike was immediately recalled to active duty where he served with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) in Naples, Italy. There he worked with other agents on counter-terrorism measures, dignitary protection, and naval investigations.

Mike served 10 years as a Criminal Investigator with the District Attorney’s Office.

Mike was elected Sheriff of Pottawatomie County in 2009 and has served the citizens proudly for the past 11 years. Mike exhibits proven leadership with proven results leading the 2nd highest decorated Sheriff’s Office since 2019 in the State of Oklahoma as honored by the Oklahoma Sheriff’s’ Association.
