A New Direction, New Leadership
Kevin represents a much needed new direction and new leadership.
As Sheriff, he will focus on the accountability and transparency
to the community, and collaboration with community leaders, that
has been sorely lacking. His priorities will be regaining the public
trust and rebuilding the culture of the Sheriff's Office based on
integrity and ethical leadership.
Safe & Effective Operations of the Jail System
Improve jail conditions in partnership with internal and external stakeholders
identifying best practices, policies and improvements.
Crime Prevention & Improved Community Policing
Provide more effective police services, improve hiring, retention and staffing. Provide education to the public on how
to better protect their neighborhoods, and ensure a much-needed collaborative law enforcement effort throughout the county.
Improve Employee Retention, Relations and Morale
Utilize latest hiring and retention strategies that relate to the workforce of the 21st century workers. Build an agency that better reflects our community. Guarantee open "two-way" communications within the ranks allowing employees to become part of departmental improvement through transparency founded in mutual respect, trust and integrity.
Ensure all Sheriff's Office personnel, including management, are accountable in all areas.
Expand Youth Programs
Develop programs protective of our youth, their families, and the community by focusing on internet crime, bullying, drugs, gangs and other areas of vulnerability.
Create and Promote Rehabilitation & Education Programs
Better utilize program staff and community volunteers to reduce recidivism among offenders. Implement programs that have both qualitative and quantitive data supporting their success and effectiveness.
