Program Speaker & Bio: 
Lt. Dale Den Ouden, Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office

Lt. Den Ouden grew up Missouri and was passionate about Law Enforcement as a child under the wing of his Father, a former FBI Agent. Not only was it in his blood, but he also had several family friends and relatives in Law Enforcement that lead him on the path to where he serves today. A graduate of Drury University in Springfield, Missouri, Lt. Den Ouden quickly found his niche as a member of the National Park Service where he served for five years in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It was in 1992 when he relocated to Asheville to begin serving as a member of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office. A now 24 year veteran, Lt. Den Ouden has risen through the ranks and currently serves in variety of roles to include Special Response Team Commander and Peer Educator for new team members. Lt. Den Ouden has received several awards of distinction to include the highly regarded Medal of Honor (2000, 2012), Purple Heart (2008) and Officer of the Year (2000). Lt. Den Ouden currently resides in Asheville, NC with his wife Becky and they have two children, Zane (22) and Casey (20). In his spare time, he enjoys going to the shooting range, spending time with his family, and hiking.
