Meet Sheriff Nehls

Sheriff Troy Nehls has dedicated his life to service. At the age of 19, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was deployed on combat tours to Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, among other places. After 21 years of service, he retired with the rank of Major and as the recipient of two Bronze Star medals. Back home, Troy continued his service through law enforcement, a multi-generational tradition for his family.

In 1994, Troy began his law enforcement service with Fort Bend ISD. He has spent the last two decades serving Fort Bend County in various law enforcement roles. Most notably, in 2012, Troy was elected as Fort Bend County Sheriff. He won re-election as Sheriff in 2016 and will complete his second four-year term in 2020.

Troy comes from a long line of law enforcement family members with his father and two brothers also serving. His twin brother, Trever, holds the same Fort Bend County Constable position Troy once held.

Outside of his official capacity as Sheriff, Troy proudly volunteers for many local groups around Fort Bend County. He is the Chairman of the “Fort Bend Salutes America” Memorial Day ceremony, a life member and former Commander of VFW Post 3903 in Rosenberg, and member of the Sugar Land Exchange Club, to name a few.

Troy supports President Trump, term limits, securing the border, and cutting taxes. He believes we need to get back to governing and deliver on President Trump’s agenda to grow on his historic accomplishments of record lows in unemployment, record job creation, and a record stock market.

Troy resides in Richmond with his wife, Jill, daughters, Jenna, Cambry, and Tori, and their four dogs Archer, Buddy, Boo, and Lulu. They worship at Faith United Methodist in Richmond.



Washington is fundamentally broken and in desperate need of change. Draining the swamp won't be easy, but I've served over 20 years in the United States Army, with deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, and have 25 years experience in law enforcement. These experiences have prepared me to take on the swamp and get things done.
