My goal is to get out of the office and be more community driven. When law enforcement officers interact with the citizens and businesses in the areas, they are tasked with serving, then they will know who lives in the neighborhood, who should be in school, and when criminal influences infiltrate the neighborhood. With firsthand knowledge comes trust. With this knowledge, officers are better equipped to make informed decisions regarding strategies to combat and prevent crime throughout Leon County.
REDUCE VIOLENCE AND CRIME
The Sheriff’s Office will do a better job of being a strong presence in the community. We will be firm but fair in enforcing the law, consistent in enforcing the law and make it known that criminal activity will not be tolerated. Crime and Law cannot exist in the same place and we will implement programs and procedures to let criminals know that Leon County is a place where the law rules. This proactive approach will remove criminal turf, reduce criminal activities, and paralyze crime. As our communities get stronger, Leon County gets stronger and becomes a better place to live.
COLD CASE TEAM
There are many citizens that are still waiting to have someone brought to justice for violent crimes against themselves, family members or loved ones. I will revive the Cold Case Team comprised of former officers and investigators that will work diligently to solve the many unsolved cases in Leon County.
I WANT TO MAKE LEON COUNTY SAFE
The bottom line: I have a plan to rapidly redeploy staff to the streets to defeat crime through an aggressive, proactive approach with more boots on the ground. We will enhance current law enforcement efforts until the crime rates are reduced and egregious crimes are no longer the norm in Leon County and until citizens and visitors feel safe.
