Undersheriff Curtiss C. Kull

Shriff Ed KilgoreUndersheriff Kull is a 29-year law enforcement veteran, having started his career with the Los Angeles Police Department as an officer in November of 1983. In January of 1986, he moved to Nevada and continued his career with the Reno Police Department.

While with Reno P.D., Kull worked uniformed patrol, was a staff officer with the first Regional Law Enforcement Academy (formerly the High Sierra Academy), and was one of the founding detectives of the Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program (R.O.P.) where he and the other detectives in the unit were responsible for arresting literally hundreds of career criminals during Kull's 11 years with the unit.

Kull's last assignment with R.P.D. was running Reno's side of the Regional Sex Offender Notification Unit. This unit was responsible for monitoring and enforcing state sex offender laws on the 1200 plus offenders in the greater Washoe County area.

Kull left the Reno Police Department after 20 plus years to move to Humboldt County with his wife and two wonderful daughters. He worked briefly for the Winnemucca Police Department until he was asked by Sheriff Kilgore to join him in working to make the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office a model agency among all the rural departments within our state.
