Donna Buckley

HYANNIS – After a close race, the next Barnstable County Sheriff will be Democrat Donna Buckley. 

She defeated Republican candidate and State Representative for the First Barnstable District Tim Whelan. 

Buckley said under her leadership, the sheriff’s office will prioritize correction, rehabilitation and treatment.  

“And that’s going to require some assessment of the organization that is currently there. Prioritization of resources and making sure that the organization works to meet the challenges that we face,” Buckley said.

Buckley will take over for current Barnstable County Sheriff Jim Cummings.
