My parents moved me and my younger brother to Nye County in 1978 and I have been a member of this amazing community since. After graduating from Pahrump Valley High School in 1993, I raised my family here as well. I am a grandfather to 4 wonderful children and Nye County is our home.
My name is Eric Murphy, and I am running for Nye County Sheriff in 2022. It would be an honor to serve you in this capacity. I have been a Nye County Resident for 43 years and Nye County is my home. I have raised my family here and my wife and I could not imagine being anywhere else.
As a nearly 20-year veteran of the Nye County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), I have acquired extensive knowledge that is critical for this role and will help ensure leadership across our department.
From unwavering dedication to my work, to the countless hours spent working in various leadership roles which I have undertaken with NCSO, I believe I can bring forth change and encouragement for not only our brave deputies, but within our communities as well. I want to make Nye County a safer place for all Nye County residents and visitors alike. I ask you for your support to vote for me for Nye County Sheriff.
I look forward to delving deeper into my platform and connecting with you further as my campaign for Nye County Sheriff progresses over the next several months. In the meantime, I encourage all members of every Nye County Community to remain engaged, express your concerns and share your thoughts and ideas with me.
At your service,
I heard the calling to serve my community well before my time with the Sheriff's Office. In 1993 I made the decision to volunteer with the Pahrump Valley Volunteer Fire Department. During that time, I served as a Firefighter/EMT working my way through the ranks and eventually achieving the rank of Lieutenant. In 2001 I wanted to dedicate more of myself and my time to the department and took on a paid Firefighter/EMT position with PVFR. Also, during that year I was awarded Firefighter of the year. In 2003 I was awarded the Medal of Valor for my actions during the Mountain View Fire and decided to make a career change.
With the continual desire to serve the community, I decided to expand on that and joined the Nye County Sheriff's Office as an Academy Recruit. After graduating the Academy, I became a Patrol Deputy in the Southern Area Command. In 2006, I was promoted to K-9 handler while still working in the Patrol Division.
In 2008 I was awarded the Purple Heart for my actions and injuries during an active shooter incident. This incident drove me to advance my career further and in 2009 I was promoted to General Assignment Detective. In 2015 I was promoted to Sergeant with NCSO and in 2017 I was promoted to Lieutenant. I currently hold this position as a Patrol, Traffic and Honor Guard Lieutenant.
If I am elected as your Nye County Sheriff, I will strive to :
1. Safeguard the Constitutional rights of each of our Citizens and Visitors.
2. Provide clear expectations and direction for NCSO while fostering a culture of equity and inclusion.
3. Promote a progressive recruitment and retention program to ensure high quality law enforcement and support personnel.
With these things, I will always put Community first, maintain my integrity and be committed to you; the citizens of Nye County with transparency.
