About Sheriff Mark Lamb

Mark Lamb is best known as the American Sheriff, but it wasn’t always the case. After being a business owner for over a decade, he joined the world of law enforcement in his thirties and has thrived as a leader in his field from day one.

Valedictorian of his training class, Rookie of the Year, Officer of the Year, Detective of the Year, and now Sheriff of Pinal County, he has always risen to every challenge in his path.

His empowering leadership style, western attire, and huge smile have set him apart from his peers and his no nonsense approach to Law Enforcement has made him a beacon of hope to many in his county and all over the world.

Lamb is a frequent guest on national outlets. He was featured in 20+ episodes of the #1 Rated Cable TV Show “Live PD” on A&E (2017-2018), featured in Season 5 of “60 Days In” and had a major role in the production which is currently airing on Netflix. Lamb also co-hosted 20 episodes of “Live PD Wanted” with Tom Morris Jr. and Michele Sigona (2019-2020) and was set to come back for 10 more episodes in July 2020 when it was postponed due to COVID.

With an attitude of “Fear Not, Do Right” and common sense approach, his patriotism is as infectious as his positive attitude.

About Chief Keith Touchberry

Chief Keith M. Touchberry began his law enforcement career in 1989 after serving six and one-half years on active duty in the Marine Corps Infantry field. Prior to that, he served for 18 months in the Army Reserve. He was hired by the Vero Beach Police Department in May of 1989 and for just over 24 years served in a variety of operational and support positions until retiring in 2013 as a Captain to become the Chief of Police for the Fellsmere Police Department.

His positions included uniform patrol, K-9 officer, K-9 team trainer, SWAT officer, uniform corporal and uniform and detective sergeant. As a command level officer, he served in numerous capacities such as training coordinator, CFA Accreditation Manager and Assessor, range administrator, operations bureau commander and support services bureau commander.

You will get the impression in conversation with the Chief that from his earliest days as a Patrol Officer he has continued to maintain a passion for public safety and has always expressed his fundamental concern for highway safety. In his current roles as Chief of Fellsmere, Florida and the sitting President of the Florida Police Chiefs Association, he is a vocal advocate for more training for law enforcement personnel in the areas of Impaired Driving Enforcement, Distracted Driving, Aggressive Driving, and Speed Enforcement for the primary goal of lowering the death and injury rates associated with traffic crashes on America’s highways! Preventing death and injury requires a proactive approach by Law Enforcement in order to be successful. In conjunction with this claim, he is championing the call to better equip law enforcement personnel with the tools and support to enforce the laws of the highway and not to stand down on roadside intervention with traffic safety violators. He is calling for a renewed commitment to support the officers assigned to this very dangerous role in every way possible, including having their back. It is his heart’s desire that you Survive and Thrive in your Calling to Serve!
