Reno, Nevada. May 7, 2014. Statement from Washoe County Chairman David Humke on the passing of retired Sheriff Dennis Balaam:

“I was so sorry to learn about the passing of retired Washoe County Sheriff Dennis Balaam,” said Chairman David Humke.  “He was a straight-up, honest guy and that’s what made him so great to work with.  He worked his way up through the ranks at the Sheriff’s Office and brought that perspective with him daily when he was our Sheriff.  Our condolences go out to his son, Assistant Sheriff Darin Balaam, and his entire family.”
