Sheriff Mike Blakely



Sheriff Blakely and his side kick, Sauceda, lead the Grand Entry into the arena.


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Limestone Sheriff's Rodeo official website. Our annual rodeo and this website, are dedicated to raising funds once a year that are earmarked toward the furtherance of law enforcement. Each year these funds support our helicopter operation, training costs for staff, purchasing radio equipment, patrol vehicles, and investigation equipment to name just a few of our projects. The funds generated each year enables us to be better prepared to serve the citizens of Limestone County, making it a safer place to live and work.

We are preparing for our 35th Annual Rodeo and are already receiving tremendous support from numerous individuals and our major sponsors. We are sincerely appreciative to everyone in this community for helping to make this rodeo possible. I would like to specifically thank Flanagan Lumber Company, Preston's Western Wear, Pepsi Cola Bottling Company of Decatur, Lynn Layton Chevrolet, Halsey FoodService, and CPC Communication  for their gracious support as our major sponsors each year.

Last, but not least, I would like to express my gratitude to the citizens of Limestone County for the direction and support you have given me as your Sheriff for the past thirty-four years. I continue to welcome your input and consider it an honor to serve you.

Mike Blakely, Sheriff
