Restoring confidence and communication between the Sheriff and Deputies and Sergeants
Establishing positive collaboration between the Sheriff's Office and other Law Enforcement agencies and public safety entities
Creating a proactive unit to address street level drug dealers, burglars, vehicle prowlers, and mail and ID thieves. There are time proven methods that are effective in dealing with these issues. A uniformed Deputy in a marked car is limited in its effectiveness in these situations.
Have the Sheriff and his Command staff be responsible for Sheriff's Office policy updates.
Make hiring Deputies for unfilled positions a high priority. I would expedite the hiring process and actively recruit academy trained applicants.
