Dave Ballard

Hello, my name is Dave Ballard, I have lived in Nevada since I was three years old and I lived in Storey County for several years. I started my career with Storey County in 1988 when I was hired by then Sheriff Bob Del Carlo as a graveyard dispatcher. In 1995, I was given the opportunity to advance in the communications field and took a position with the Nevada Highway Patrol. During my time with the State of Nevada I worked in communications and had the opportunity to work in several different areas throughout the administrative and support services. In 2006, an opportunity arose that allowed me to return to Storey County. The 911 dispatch center was separated from the Sheriff’s Office, and the Storey County Communications Center was formed. After going through a testing and interview process, I was offered the position as director of the communications center. I proudly accepted and never looked back.

I am very grateful to be a part of Storey County, and I am happy to provide a service to a community that is very special to me. The staff at the Storey County Communications Center also takes great pride in serving the citizens of Storey County. Many are life-long residents, and all of them have ties to the communities within the county. If you have any questions or comments, Please feel free to contact me at 775-847-0930 or you may email me at dballard@storeycounty.org
