What I did at ACSD before becoming Sheriff 

Patrol Supervisor

In addition to patrolling the roads myself, I supervised the other deputies that were on the road in the towns that we have contracts with. I am also in charge of assigning deputies to highway safety details like "Click it or Ticket" and "Connect to Disconnect" that focus on safe driving.


Through a grant provided by Womensafe, I was assigned to help follow up on domestic violence investigations for the State's Attorney. This also included training in how to better interview people that have experienced trauma. However, in order to effectively campaign for Sheriff, I resigned from the position in May of 2022.

Training Officer

After graduating from the Academy, I help train new Deputies that join our ranks. My job is to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills that they need to do the best job they can.


I assisted with making the schedule for the department, deciding when and where to send deputies. This also included providing deputies for details like road construction and traffic control for special events.

Office of Child Support

I was assigned to work under a contract for the Office of Child Support to locate people around the state to serve paperwork and make arrests

Car Seat Technician

I am a certified car seat technician which means I provide help and support to parents and guardians with installing child safety seats. As needed, I inspect how the car seat is installed to ensure it can properly keep the child safe.

Additional Duties

On top of these regular duties, I also help out as needed at the Courthouse, with special details such as traffic control and security contracts, fingerprint people weekly for employment background checks, investigate trash complaints, and serve civil process paperwork. I also help the Sheriff ensure that the department functions to the best of its ability.
