Sanders County Residents: I would appreciate your support in the upcoming Primary Election. I feel I can provide leadership and can put my experience to work for you and the best interests of Sanders County and its taxpayers. If I haven’t been able to talk personally with you yet, I want to do so. The following vision is what I see accomplishing as the Sheriff. All of these ideas are of no cost or low cost to SCSO and only need the leadership and hard work of the Sheriff to make them possible. For example, the National Certification can save the County 15% on the cost of liability insurance, improve officer training, and communication within the county between the SCSO and our citizens. My intent is not to change our life in Sanders County but to improve the service that SCSO gives to its citizens so that all can enjoy our lifestyle. As a certified police officer, I have the experience and training to work cases, which I will do. More important, I have 30 years in working with people, solving problems, managing and administrating organizations, more experience in that area than any other candidate. My background includes ten years working against the drug dealers of the world. Hard work is something I know as you can see from my experience and qualifications. I want to give you the same hard work as your Sheriff.
    My Vision: To Lead the Sheriff’s Department of Sanders County to be the best in Montana in professionalism, administration, and service while providing fair, ethical and consistent law enforcement, keeping the peace and protecting life and property and doing so within Constitutional guidelines that safeguard individual liberties. Likewise, operate the Jail in a manner consistent with fairness and humane treatment, recognizing the duty to safeguard both the public as well as those within the facility.
    KEY TASKS: (1) Raise the level of professional qualification through training and National certification of all patrol, detention, and staff officers. (2) Decrease felony crimes through prevention 33% and raise cleared case rate by 25% in Sanders County.

(4) Reduce response time to County calls by 33%. (5) Establish a new domestic violence and rural enforcement program as outlined by the National Sheriffs’ Association. (6) Establish the Triad program as outlined by the National Sheriffs’ Association to support the senior citizens of Sanders County. (7) Increase coordination and cooperation with local City Police Departments, Tribal, State and Federal Agencies. (8) Pursue additional grants and funding through all means available for the Department. (9)    Seek accreditation of the Department from the Commission on Accreditation of Law enforcement Agencies. (10) Adopt and enforce the National Sheriffs’ Association Code of Ethics.
