Bold leadership requires an unwavering belief in a core set of values. I believe the fundamental principles of a person's character are illustrated by Integrity, Leadership, Professionalism, and Respect of others.
I have always communicated with my personnel to personally define each as:
I will continue to provide quality law enforcement services to the citizens of Shelby County that promote the safety, security, and well-being of our community.
I will continue the spirit of success that my predecessor, Sheriff Curry, has instilled in our Sheriff’s Office.
I believe quality law enforcement services come from a well equipped, well trained, and highly professional staff of Deputies and Corrections Professionals. Therefore, I will continue to actively recruit and hire the best and brightest law enforcement professionals to equitably serve the citizens of Shelby County.
I have worked to establish strong working relationships with our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners. I will continue to foster and strengthen those relationships, as well as making ourselves available to neighboring agencies.
I will continue to represent the fundamental and equitable interest of our County's safety and fiscal longevity. Just as we always have, I will maintain fiscal transparency in all Sheriff’s Office expenditures and budget needs.
