Mike Mondul is only the fourth person to hold the office of Sheriff in Danville. He was elected on November 3, 2009. The first was Charlie Smith. Upon Sheriff Smith's retirement in 1987, Dudley Bowling was named Interim Sheriff. He held that position for one year before Jim Dooley was elected on November 10, 1988. The office currently has 81 employees and serves approximately 45,586 citizens. In the early days, the Sheriff was called the City Sergeant. He later became known as the High Constable. In 1973 the name was changed to Sheriff, and the office moved into the Courts and Jails Building in 1975.
