I ran for and was elected to serve as the Wake County Sheriff in November of 2022. Simply put, people live life to the fullest when they feel safe. As Sheriff, I'm committed to providing effective, inclusive, and efficient public safety because it’s essential for the realization and shared experiences of quality education, a clean environment, a sound economy, reliable mass transit, and equal access to an overall quality life.
REDUCE CRIME AND ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY BY
Increasing officer presence and engagement in communities to prevent crime and foster positive relationships with the residents.
Serving as mentors in elementary schools and coaches in community youth organizations.
Establishing a Sheriff's Advisory Council to review the Sheriff's Office performance and provide input to ensure effectiveness, efficiency, equity, diversity and inclusiveness.
RESTORE PUBLIC TRUST IN THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND ESTABLISH OPEN AND HONEST COMMUNICATION WITH THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE.
As Sheriff, I will work to restore public confidence and provide equal protection for all. The Sheriff’s Office cannot be fully effective if it does not have the trust of the very residents we are called to serve.
I will use my experience to build relationships and establish open lines of communication with staff. I will recruit, properly vet, train, and equip the most qualified individuals to serve and protect the residents and properties of Wake County. By being transparent and available to staff, I will set the example of what’s expected of personnel when engaging with members of the public. It will be critical that the office fill current vacancies and maintain sufficient staffing to safely perform the duties of the office.
