More Service. Less Politics.


My Goals As Sheriff

As Lake County Sheriff, the focus would be on implementing programs and executing plans that help build community trust, support our youth, and eliminate gang members and drugs from our city streets.

Rebuild Community Trust

Through comprehensive and innovative community police programs, cyber units, and community training.

Support Our Youth

Through youth training, education, mentorship, and after school / summer programs.

Bring Justice to Our Streets

By targeting gang organizations, seizing drugs off our streets, and training & education for inmates.

You Can Help!

We are always in search of new, talented, and friendly people to join our team! We can't do it alone. We need your voice, your vote, and your donations of time, talent and resources!
