Safety in our county is paramount. Collaboration between the Sheriff's Office, local law enforcement entities and the community is necessary. I have always been concerned about safety in our county. I believe there is a workable solution that involves the partnership of the Sheriff's Office, local law enforcement and the community. Let's decrease our crime statistics and increase programs that foster positive growth and development for all of our citizens. It's not enough to just enforce. There must be education, trust, integrity and a willingness to improve.
