Corrupt Kenny Furlong 2014 candidate for Sheriff
In Nevada you can still vote for “none of the above”.
DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS GUY.
Kenny Furlong is not open and transparent. In fact, Furlong’s office is directly not returning calls to the media about the judge John Tatro shooting incident where the shooter made a jailhose confession.
He said the sheriff’s office has faced some significant events during this term in office — chief among them the shootings at IHOP. He said he thinks his leadership has enabled the department to meet those challenges “with efficiency and extreme effectiveness.”
Furlong said his tenure has featured programs designed to target gang activity and drug use as well as underage drinking.
He said he has maintained an open administration, frequently patrolling the streets and listening to the needs of the community. Furlong said he has worked closely with city government to achieve results and helped create critical data systems to base resource allocation on factual information.
Furlong said he believes strongly in public contact, saying, “the continuous exchange of information serves as a basis for an effective and efficient law enforcement agency.”
He said programs such as Drug Abuse Resistance Education, citizen academies, anti-gang and expanded regional cooperation have all have helped with crime prevention, as have events such as Cops and Kids Dinner, Open House Kids Street Fair, National Night Out and the Extreme Motor Challenge.
He said he wants to begin new initiatives he hopes will being more benefits including giving those with mental health obstacles a stronger protective role in Carson City schools and creating a permanent fixture in the sheriff’s office for alternative juvenile discipline and beginning a rural open space patrol.
Furlong, a Carson City native, graduated from Carson High in 1975. He retired from the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations in 1998. He was a detective sergeant with the Department of Public Safety’s Major Crimes Unit before being elected sheriff in 2002. He is seeking his fourth four-year term.
Furlong is married and has two children and two grandchildren.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny furlong needs to be asked the real questions. This guy and his deputies arecorrupt as hell and the Sheriff is one big RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) operation. Please read the circa 2006 Topox called “Corrupt Law enforcement in Carson City Nevada” by Patty Pruett, Dayton Nevada. We’ll post some of the text at the bottom of this story. We also uncovered a Grand Jury investigation suggestion ALL CARSON CITY SHERIFF personnel should be DRUG TESTED.
Some of this may seem outlandish until you remember these things happened in 1989 South Lake Tahoe when thecity mayor named Terry Trupp was busted for a major cocaine trafficking cartel and just recently Johnny Poland of the SLTPD was hooked up on charges of obstructing justice, evidence tampering and aiding and embedding the “Mexican Moffia” in South Lake Tahoe.See our other website at http://SLTPDwatch.wordpress.com
Kenny will you do a show with us and our video cameras? …And why did you come into my cell two times and give me a “stink eye” death look? Is it true what you deputies are saying about you?
Published on Mar 26, 2013 Watch Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong answer important questions from some influential women in our community
Kenny Furlong stated his position on “gun control” where he did elaborate that because of the Ihop shootings, he would be compelled to confiscate firearms in Carson City, NV. Although, he believes it won’t happen and he was primary focused on multi-round auto and semi-auto firearms.
Gun Control at 20:00 – Kenny wants to ban weapons (at least assault style weapons) because of the Ihop incident. In that case a Norinco MAK90 was modified from semi to fully auto. Other Sheriff Associations from around the State of Nevada and the rest of the union are fully supporting the US Constitution and 2nd amendment rights, Sheriff Furlong is not.
Below are Nevada Sheriffs that support gun rights:
- Ed Kilgpore Humboldt NV
- Benjamin D. Trotter Churchill NV
- Tony DeMeo Nye NV
So, Kenny what’s the Sheriff’s role in alleged distribution with meth, heroin and other drugs and drug dealers in Carson City?
Is your daughter Kendra Furlong fully recovered from her battles with crank (meth) addiction?
Sheriff Furlong and Kendra Furlong – Crystal Darkness
Is the Sheriff office under any investigations? Rumors are rampant that federal grand money is “missing”? We heard the FBI was investigation misappropriation of funds related to Kenny Furlong using the Carson City “credit card” to pay for friends vehicles impounds after DUI’s (which were covered up)… Is this true?
We hear of many “cover ups” and other “scandals” concerning the Carson City Sheriff’s department including last years incident with former NDOT Director, Susan Martinovich where it’s alleged the Sheriff covered up that factSusan Martinovich essentially was involved in a “hit and run” and the victim was actually charged with trumped up charges that were later dropped. This seems like a blatant attempt to cover-up Susan Martinovich’s criminal involvement in that incident, correct?
Kenny Furlong, you did go to Carson City High School, correct (you talk about that in the video). Interesting thatSusan Martinovich and Justice of the Peace Judge John Tatro all went to the same High School and played significant roles in the hit and run coverup. What’s your take on that Furlong?
In recent photo shots, you Kenny furlong seem to hanging out with Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo a lot. We’ve seen you dancing with the stars along with Neil Rombardo and giving blood with him as well. Are you gay? What exactly is your “friendship” with Neil Rombardo? Seems like there should be a better “separation of power” in such a small incestuous little city like Carson.
We hear of food poisoning and unsafe and inhumane conditions and treatment of inmates at your Carson City jail. We note that statistics show 20% of incarcerated people are actually innocent. Regardless of innocence or guilt, the facts show that there are a high number of alleged “suicides” that occur in the Carson City jail. Released inmates report tainted food with drugs including methadone. The showers have excessive mold and airborne insects and diseases like MRSA skin infection is rampant in the Carson City jailhouse. We hear that a medical malpractice and civil rights lawsuit is imminent against you and the Carson City court system including Judge John Tatro…
What exacly is Kenny Furlong’s position on gun owners rights? We understand he agrees with the Obama administration.
Finally, with all this controversy, what are your plan Kenny Furlong for the future? Do you plan on staying in law enforcement or are you getting your affairs in order to go to prison?

Submitted by Jeff Munson on Wed, 01/08/2014 – 8:07pm
Carson City Sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Gonzales announced Wednesday his candidacy for sheriff of Carson City.
Gonzales says he is running for sheriff with the goal of increasing integrity, transparency and accountability in the Sheriff’s Office, as well as restructuring the department to put more officers on patrol and use monies to better protect and serve Carson City and its residents.
Also in the race are incumbent Sheriff Ken Furlong and Carson City Sheriff’s Office Deputy Don Gibson.
“It’s important that we have the best people protecting our families and children in Carson City,” said Gonzales in a news release. “I will make the safety of our community my top priority if elected to Carson City Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Office is not evolving, due to insular decision making and a lack of outside input and perspective.”
Gonzales said he would raise standards for training of deputies and reserve deputies, so they are better equipped to respond to all situations. Gonzales said he would raise hiring and promotion standards to insure the most qualified applicants serve the department.
If elected, Gonzales said he is committed to upgrading technology to make it easier to report crimes, investigate crimes and share information with the public; allowing for faster response times.
“We need to focus on integrity, transparency and accountability in Carson City law enforcement,” Gonzales said. “I support creating the Office of Professional Standards and Integrity to ensure this department and our staff are held to the highest standards because that’s what the residents of Carson City deserve.”
Gonzales said he is committed to increasing efficiency and will work to eliminate redundant and unnecessary positions.
“I have already identified over $600,000 in funds that I will reorganize in the budget to get more deputies out on the streets to keep our communities safe from drugs and gangs” said Gonzales.
With these re-allocated funds he would collaborate with the Board of Supervisors to create a new investigator position to focus on crimes against children, elder abuse and elder exploitation cases. In addition Gonzales said he is dedicated to making schools safer and providing safety education to students.
Among his plans for schools, Gonzales’ agenda includes adding two new school resource deputies to the middle schools with some of his re-allocated budget. The deputies sole responsibilities would be to serve at our schools.
Gonzales said he would also dedicate deputies to a full-time traffic management team, whose primary function will be traffic enforcement and education. Gonzales wants to implement a Teen Distracted Driving Program. This program is an opportunity to educate new drivers and their parents to clearly understand their responsibility when a teenager starts to drive. This class would cover traffic laws, the provisional license restrictions and safety education.
Gonzales has written numerous grants for the Sheriff’s Office which total more than $450,000, which went towards gang suppression, digital forensics equipment, Youth Alcohol Enforcement, youth services, drug interdiction operations and safety equipment, according to the news release.
Gonzales has a long history of excellence within the Carson City Sheriff’s Office and strong commitment to public safety having served the citizens of Carson City for over 10 years. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2005, Deputy of the Year in 2009 and was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal in 2011. Gonzales has devoted his career to making Carson City a safer community.
Gonzales has been on the Department’s Gang unit, SET team, Field Training Officer, Explorer Executive Advisor, SWAT / Sniper, Detective, Hostage Negotiator – team leader, For 6 years Gonzales has written and coordinated the Department’s Enforcement of Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) grant.
According to the news release, he educates persons responsible for serving alcohol and reduces the availability of alcohol to our youth. Gonzales also conducts enforcement operations that include business compliance checks, targets youth DUI enforcement and shoulder taps. In 2009, because of his team’s efforts, the Department was recognized nationally as the Agency of the year. Gonzales also coordinates the Departments Crisis Intervention Team.
Since 2006, Gonzales has taught sheriff’s deputies and other local law enforcement agencies, crisis intervention training, known as “CIT,” this 45 hour program focuses on first-responder officers who receive specialized training geared to meet the needs of the mentally ill.
