Dougherty was elected to the position last November. He succeeds John York, who retired last year after 24 years as sheriff.
Dougherty took the oath from Federal Judge Richard Wesley. Dougherty's parents, Barb and Pete, were there.
Dougherty was previously an investigator with the sheriff's office.
