kramer_smallJerome Kramer began his Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office career as a Detention Officer in October of 1981 and worked there until he received a position as a Deputy Sheriff in January of 1983, graduating from the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center in June of that year and remained a Lincoln County Deputy Sheriff until elected Lincoln County Sheriff and taking office on August 3, 2006.

While working as a Deputy Sheriff, Jerome quickly obtained the rank of Sergeant and ultimately held almost every position that a Deputy Sheriff could. In addition to running a Patrol Shift for a number of years, Jerome was in charge of the Civil Division during the mid 1980’s agricultural recession and worked with countless numbers of agricultural professionals in their dire times. The Civil Division is one of the highest liability areas of any Sheriff’s Offices and Jerome was placed in charge during that time because of his tenacity and life-long agricultural background; Jerome understands the agricultural community and their needs.

Jerome Kramer also spent several years as the Sergeant in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division and was involved with innumerable major crimes including 1st degree sexual assaults (rape), child neglect and abuse cases and 5 murders.

His vast experience in the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, willingness to communicate with the Lincoln County citizenry, and his incredible caring nature won the confidence of the Lincoln County voters and Jerome Kramer was elected as the Lincoln County Sheriff in the May 2006 Primary Election and he ran unopposed in the fall’s General Election. When the sitting Sheriff retired before completing his current term, the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners appointed Jerome as Sheriff on August 3, 2006.
