  • Lander County Sheriff's Office

    Does anyone have info, comments and opinions on the Lander County Sheriff's Office? I am thinking of applying? Thanks for your replies.

    My initial posting with NHP was in Eureka, which is right next door to Austin in Lander county. They had a couple of resident Deputies there, but the jail was in Battle Mountain, which is about 92 miles north of Austin on SR 305 (or was is 306?). Austin is a tiny little town on US 50. There is also the town of Hadley (Round Mountain), Kingston, and some ranches out there. Not much happens.

    I worked with the Austin Deputies quite a bit. They were good dudes. I don't think they pay very well at all. In Battle Mountain, the SO takes care of the town because there is no PD.

    A few years back, the Lander County Sheriff (Cranovich) was arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned for embezzlement, among other things. Not sure the reputation has fully recovered. They do have a pretty new jail in Battle Mountain (about 6 years old), which is good.

    Not long ago, Battle Mountain was voted the "Armpit of America" by a passing reporter. It is actually on a couple of billboard on I80.
    Gimme a Diablo sammich and a Dr. Pepper, and make it snappy - I'm in a gotd**n hurry!

      You should try Lyon or Douglas County. Two great agencies up North. Pay is good as well. I believe Reno PD is hiring and also Washoe. I dont know much up uch about Lander. Isnt that where Battle Mountain is?
