I have been honored to serve Halifax County citizens as Sheriff for the past four years.” “My dedication is to the office and to the citizens we serve, working to provide the highest level of law enforcement services and professionalism to the community. I will continue to move the sheriff's office forward with the progress we have made during my tenure of rebuilding community relations and implementing proactive law enforcement and safety programs. I will continue my open-door policy and remain accessible to all citizens.

Our office prides itself in being transparent and accountable to all the citizens we serve. I believe accessibility to the public is the cornerstone of any sheriff’s administration, and I am committed to being a visible and accessible public officer. Accessibility to the citizens is a critical part of the sheriff’s duties. I have attended numerous social, civic, church, sporting and fundraising events to give anyone an opportunity to talk with their Sheriff.

Working together we can make Halifax County a much better and safe place to live and rear our families and prosper in a diverse community.

I humbly ask for your vote on November 3rd. Thank you and God bless you and your family.
