During my entire career, I have maintained a high standard of integrity which I believe is essential in the criminal justice field. The main function and purpose of the sheriff’s office is to promote public safety and operate a safe and humane correctional facility. Of the many issues facing the law enforcement community today, maintaining public trust is our main objective. Our deputies are in a position of trust and responsibility for the community. I believe it is important to continually promote high expectations and a clear mission for the sheriff’s office. Courage, compassion, teamwork, trustworthiness, justice and service are fundamental values that are the cornerstones of responsible law enforcement. The employees of the sheriff’s office will receive the best training available to provide the highest quality of service to Hays County. By promoting these values on a consistent basis, we will ensure our standard of quality service and obtain results of the highest caliber.
I will work hard to keep Hays County safe, by making public safety my number one priority to earn your trust and confidence. Utilizing my county budget experience, funds requested by the sheriff’s office will promote our values and will yield results to enhance the safety and security of the taxpayers while keeping officers on the streets, streamlining administrative functions and minimizing costs. I will work with other local, state and federal entities to lead the Hays County Sheriff’s Office. As a result, we will meet the county’s needs and reach our goal of exemplary law enforcement and correctional services for Hays County.
