The opioid crisis has affected the entire nation, and has been made worse through the war on drugs. Jail is not an appropriate solution for helping people suffering from drug addiction.
I will cooperate with community organizations and our judicial system to ensure that we are finding alternatives to jail whenever appropriate.
The militarization of Law Enforcement through the federal government's 1033 program has eroded public trust, saddled counties with expensive, obsolete military hardware, and has not made our communities safer.
As Sheriff, I want my deputies to have the right training to uphold peace in Arapahoe county and the right equipment to help them better serve our communities.
Our justice system is based on the premise that people are presumed innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law. The 4th Amendment affirms the right to privacy of our persons and our possessions. Actions taken by government that assume guilt are not only immoral, they are unconstitutional.
As your next Sheriff, I will uphold and defend due process for everyone in our county.
"I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals."
