“Law enforcement must respect the people that we serve. When we all work together and keep the lines of communication open, we can achieve our
primary common goal–public safety.

As your Sheriff, I am fully committed to running this
office with fairness and to serving all of you
equally with dignity, as I have since the first
day I was sworn in as a police officer.”
