As your 2022 ISA President and the LaGrange County Sheriff, I look forward to continuing to build on the already strong foundation of the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association. This is due to the Communication and Collaboration our past Presidents and Sheriffs have had with our Legislators and our Communities.
The last couple of years, with the pandemic, have been taxing on our Sheriff’s Offices and communities. The pandemic redirected the Sheriff’s on how we needed to perform our duties and operate our Jails in order to keep the community safe and healthy as well as our jail population not to mention our staff. The ISA made sure PPE and the proper pandemic guidelines were available to all 92 counties.
The ISA has established a solid communication relationship with our legislators in order to work on issues that are concerning to the Office of Sheriff as well as our Communities. We have established roundtables with our legislators throughout the state to have open discussions on issues and to get ahead of those issues.
Those are just a few ways the ISA supports your Sheriff and community. Because of our ISA Members, the ISA is able to sponsor a Scholarship program for collage bound students seeking a career in law enforcement, a summer Youth Leadership Camp and offer many training opportunities for all 92 Sheriff Offices.
As your ISA President, I want our members to know that ISA supports your Sheriff no matter the size of the county. Without the support of our Members and the collaboration with our State Representatives and Senators we wouldn’t be able to accomplish the things we do. The ISA cannot do what we do alone, we value your support and the support of our legislative stakeholders.
“No Sheriff Stands Alone”
I look forward to serving as your President working together as “One Voice” building “Communities of Trust”
