Skip for Sheriff of Fremont County 2018
Skip for Sheriff of Fremont County
The citizens of Fremont County elect a Sheriff and entrust him/her with a noble cause: to ensure that everyone in the county receives professional, courteous, and constitutional service. The sheriff is directly responsible to the people and the public has the duty, and ability, to reaffirm their faith in the sheriff and the deputy’s that are employed.
How can we restore the relationship between the citizens of Fremont County and the Sheriff’s Department? I believe that this happens when the citizens and police walk together and talk about issues of concerns. Today, in the “virtual” world we live in it is easier than ever to communicate.
Once elected, together we will;
  1. Enhanced department transparency for all to view
  2. Partner with citizens on a crusade to make Fremont County the safest place to work, live, pray and play
  3.   Zero tolerance for illegal drugs and dealers
  4. Eliminate budgetary waste to provide better stewardship of the tax payer dollars.
    • Streamline the budget and  remove duplicated services
    •  Fuel efficient and safe vehicles for the Officers
    • Better pay for Officers equals better retention and professionalism
    •  Eliminate speed traps and increase surveillance where needed in problem areas,.
  5. Develop a Prisoner Work Program within our county for the nonviolent offenders that are incarcerated.
  6. See and Be Seen – Patrol vehicles will have their parking lights on when parked along the highways or when not in motion.
  7. As your Sheriff, I feel it is important to have an open-door policy ensuring an open line of communication
  8.   A check and balance system, to include a volunteer citizen review committee that works directly with the Sheriff. 
  9. The Sheriff’s job is to make sure our deputies are prepared to go out there and do what is expected of them with the Fremont County Sheriff office.
 It’s also the Sheriff’s responsibility to make sure the deputies have the best training available to them throughout their employment.
 We will provide first rate service to all within our county.
In summary, once elected as your Sheriff, my Deputies and I are here to Protect and Serve YOU.  We cannot do it effectively without YOU. Together we will succeed at reducing crime and creating a safe community that we are all proud to be a part of.
My team is still gathering comments and concerns. I welcome your feedback.

Community

Professional, courteous, constitutional service to all.

The following programs are designed to offer to the community enhanced public safety, educate our youth, and promote partnerships between law enforcement and the Citizens of Fremont.  My programs will be made possible through grants and donations.

 

Parental Home Drug Testing

Voluntary and Confidential

Don’t Guess, Test.  Home Drug Test kits will be acquired and made available to residents of Fremont County.  The goal is to offer free drug test kits that can be conducted in private.  This will allow parents and guardians the ability to monitor the patterns and behavior of their children who are under the age of 18 years old.  The test kits give parents a tool to have that critical discussion about drug use; and offers a method for parents who suspect their child may be using illegal drugs the knowledge which will allow them to seek professional help if needed.  Funding for D.G.T. will be through local donations and grants.

 

 

 

A New Perspective

Jail Tours and Seminars

I will be making this program available to youth groups, schools, and parents.  A new perspective allows children and teens a glimpse at what life is like behind bars.  Inmates within the facility can help to shape the picture how their bad choices led to jail.  As your Sheriff I aim to deter young people from participating in criminal behavior.   Part of this program will be identify individuals incarcerated that want to help others make different choices.  This program will be open to parents to accompany their children into the facility to experience what life may be like if their drug or alcohol abuse leads them into a bad situation.   Provide a realistic lesson to young people and not only say but show what happens and how their current path may affect the future.

 

 

 

Safe Teen Driving

Traffic Stop Notification

I plan to implement a voluntary notification system for parents with young drivers under the age of 18.  Under my program a decal is put on the window of the young drivers car.  If the car is stopped by Sheriff Deputies, a notification card will be sent to parents by text, email or mail to let them know.

 

 

Project Lifesaver

Call an Angel

Project Lifesaver aids victims (and their families) who become lost as a result of mental impairments, or other issues. The idea is to use technology to locate individuals who have drifted or strayed. Clients wear a tracking device (wrist, ankle or necklace). When a caregiver calls the special line to report someone missing our angel search team responds to the area. Using hand held tracking systems to find the person as soon as possible.

 

 

 

Call Back

Web Portal Victim Update and Communications

I will work diligently on a new communications platform for victims.  You will be able to access and interact with your case Officer using your personal computer, tablet or smart phone.  Just login using the case number and code provided to you during the interview with the Officer.  The system will give you up-to date information that has been released.  It will also offer you a method to send messages to the case Officer.

 

 

 

 

Don’t be a Pawn

Stolen Merchandise Announcement Program

This is one of my favorites, personally.  I want to make sure information regarding stolen merchandise in the county is reported to all Pawn shops live.  Pawn shops will be able to search in real time to determine if the merchandise offered is stolen goods.  Time is of the essence, criminals normally sells the goods before anyone is the wiser.

 

 

 

 

Volunteer Citizen Review Committee

Check and Balance

As your Sheriff it is important to have an open door policy.  We have seen so much impropriety in our county I am not sure what is true and what is not.  A monthly meeting will be held to allow citizens of Fremont a voice in the Sheriffs department.  A Citizen Review Committee will be created as an advisory to the people.  A committee of strong community leaders to give fresh perspective and insight to the problems facing our county.  A committee to make sure the enhanced transparency is delivered.

 

 

 

 

 

The FCS office has been involved in a lot of misconduct.  I have highlighted some of the most recent misconduct stories coming from the FCSO.  It is time to ReVAMP the Marsh!
