Sheriff Brame is a Vance County native and served as a member of the Vance County Sheriff's Office for over 30 years before retiring as the Patrol Captain in 2016.  Upon the retirement of Sheriff Peter White, Brame announced his candidacy for Sheriff.  After winning the election in November, 2018, Sheriff Brame was sworn in as Vance County's Sheriff.

Sheriff Brame is a family man and treats every employee of the office as a family member.  Realizing the challenges of modern law enforcement, he has empowered his deputies to be more proactive in addressing the issues that contribute to criminal activity and violence.  Sheriff Brame also is a proponent of inter-agency cooperation and actively seeks out opportunities to work with partner agencies, such as the Henderson Police Department, North Carolina State Highway Patrol, NC State Bureau of Investigation, Juvenile Justice, Department of Social Services, Child Protective Services, and many others both within law enforcement and civilian.


The Executive Command Staff includes Captain Durwood Campbell and Captain Billy Gooch.

Captain Campbell has been with the Vance County Sheriff's Office for over 25 years and is currently the Captain of Patrol Services and the Civil Division.  Captain Gooch has been with the Vance County Sheriff's Office for over 20 years and is the Captain of Investigations, Narcotics and Administrations.
