I wholeheartedly support Richard Roundtree for sheriff of Richmond County, and ask the voters to give him the majority Nov. 6.
Roundtree has the training, experience, work ethic, technical savvy, leadership skills and personality to move the sheriff’s department into the 21st century and reduce crime in our area.
I have attended a couple of his forums and talked with him personally. I am convinced that, if elected, he will become an outstanding sheriff who will make us all proud.
I am impressed with his platform and community covenant. Also he wants to implement the following programs, policies and procedures as your new sheriff:
• a citizens advisory board;
• community policing;
• police reserves;
• accreditation and certification for the department;
• greater use of the latest technology;
• a gang and drug task force;
• updated procedures for staff accountability;
• a citizens review board.
Remember, this election will determine whether crime in our area will continue to grow or be reduced.
Roundtree is very capable to lead the sheriff’s department into the future to provide the very best protection for all our citizens. So let us go out, beginning with advance voting Oct. 16, to vote for Richard Roundtree, a great crime-fighter.
