Sheriff Hanley is a minor character encountered in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Events in Red Dead Redemption 2

Sheriff Hanley arrested Micah in Strawberry, and sentenced him to hang for killing two O'Driscolls in a bar fight. After Arthur breaks Micah out of Jail, a shootout ensues, where Hanley is killed by either Arthur or Micah. After his death, Sheriff Farley will take his place.



Hanley is shown to take his job very seriously, and wants to see all criminals brought to justice. He is also shown to dislike bounty hunters as shown when he dismisses Arthur when he attempts to guise as one.


  • He cannot be encountered in Free Roam, even before the events of Blessed are the Meek?. Instead Sheriff Farley will be present in Strawberry.
