Qualities listed by sheriff
As a candidate for the office of Dawson County Sheriff I would like to thank Sheriff Craig Anderson for his perception of what is needed for the experience of the new sheriff.
We don’t agree on everything, but I think the sheriff hit the nail on the head with his statement that the person the voting public should elect would have extensive experience in major felony cases, supervising complicated multi-agency investigations, and the skill to develop, mentor and lead the employees of the Sheriff’s department.
I agree with the Sheriff’s perception.
I have taken reports and investigated hundreds and hundreds of felony crimes. Such as homicide, attempted homicide, robbery, rape, grand larceny, vehicular homicide and fraud. I have supervised many of these investigations.
I have the Leadership skills needed to lead the department employees. This experience comes from being a Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, D.A.R.E. Mentor for the Nevada Police Officer Standards and Training, and Sergeant for 25 D.A.R.E. Officers.
I also was an academy instructor for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
I was the resident officer in Indian Springs, Nev., a community of over 1,700 people.
I have conducted and taken part in training with agencies such as the U.S. Air Force, Arizona Department of Public Safety, Rose Bud County Sheriff’s Department, Nevada Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Police Department, The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, The Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Forest Service.
I developed a training program and instructed the Defensive and Pursuit Driving School for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, also wrote the Pursuit Policy for the department, and wrote the Visitation Policy for the Dawson County Correctional Facility.
I am the only candidate running for the office of Dawson County Sheriff who has the suggested/recommended background and experience listed by the current sheriff.
