Crime

Crime is the main concern of most residents in the county. They want to be safe in their homes and when they travel. I started out being honest with folks and told them I want law abiding Citizens to carry a gun and be proficient in its use. Furthermore, I don't have enough deputies, and the average response time is 11 minutes nationwide. Since then, I have informed the Citizens that they must help me make the county safe. I started neighborhood watch programs to train citizens to not become victims. I have had Citizens' gun classes to train them how to and when to use a gun, safety always being of upmost importance. Our arrests are up, but crime will not go away. We are only a small part of the criminal justice system. The courts and legislature must answer to the public as well.
