Sheriff Richard Mack
Constitutional Sheriff and Peace Officer’s
Author, speaker, and former Sheriff, Richard Mack has served on a wide variety of roles over the course of his nearly twenty year career in law enforcement, which began in Provo, UT.
After 11 years at Provo PD, Mack decided to return to his childhood turf in AZ and run for Graham County Sheriff. He was elected in 1988.
During his tenure, federal officers informed the sheriffs of the state that they would be required to enforce the “Brady Bill” and run background checks at their expense under the law. In 1994, Mack and six other sheriffs from across the country challenged the constitutionality of the Brady Bill – all the way to the US Supreme Court – and won.
Mack has been named Elected Official of the Year by the AZ-MN Coalition of Counties in 1994, received the NRA Law Officer of the Year, and inducted into NRA Hall of Fame. Attained the 1995 Cicero Award, Samuel Adams Leadership Award, Gun Owners of America Defender of the Second Amendment Award; and was Sheriff for two terms until 1997.
Sheriff Mack currently teaches, consults and empowers people throughout the US and world.
