In 2018, Danny Rogers was elected as the first African American Sheriff for the Guilford County Sheriff's Department that serves Greensboro and High Point, North Carolina.

Danny Rogers understands what it means to desire to live in a safe and healthy environment. Raised by a single mother he values the mentors who stepped up to the plate from his community to give him a better perspective of the African Proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ 
 
He experienced quite a bit growing up. Even though his mom made sure he stayed away from the streets he still saw a lot. 
 
That really gave him a reality check. He understood then that none of us are invincible. He was also afraid of what my grandparents or my mom would do to him if I got into trouble. That proverb is so true because it really did take the whole community to help those who wanted to be helped. 
 
Danny’s personal experiences as a law enforcement officer and life time resident of Guilford County provides firsthand knowledge of how to bridge the gap between the community and the law enforcement officers who are serving diligently in those communities. These lifelong experiences are what has helped shape him into who he is today. 
 
Roger's ability to rise above his past and not allow it to define his future. He’s a living testimony that people can learn from their mistakes and change for the better.  Learning from past mistakes is what Rogers believes is the key to changing the recidivism rate in Guilford County. 
 
He is committed to Guilford County. I plan to implement a proactive, transparent, accountable, and properly accredited Sheriff’s Office. It will be one that’s stellar and one that restores the checks and balances, so the residents of Guilford County can be better served. He plans to reduce inmate recidivism with a renewed focus to generate a long-lasting impact on the former inmates, as they become productive citizens while also providing for more safety and tax dollar savings for the entire community.
 
As a proactive Sheriff, he wants to implement policies, programs, and practices before they become legal issues instead of being a reactive Sheriff. He wants to be proactive instead of reactionary by making changes before incidents occur that force change within the department. There are many qualified minority officers on the force. The officers should also reflect the communities they serve.”
 
Rogers has worked with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office as a Detention Officer and as a Deputy Sheriff in roles that include both vice and undercover operations. He has also worked as a Police Officer with the High Point Police Department.
 

A few of Danny’s strategic plans consist of reducing crime, providing safer streets and neighborhoods, eliminating the flow of illegal drugs and guns entering our communities, and building trust and amicable relationships between citizens and law enforcement officers. 

Rogers promises, “As the Sheriff of Guilford County, I will work every day, in every community, to serve and protect all residents from the known and unknown, and to create stronger, and safer neighborhoods.”
