To support Porter County Wildlife, I donated my time today and was dunked at Sunset Farm.
The 3rd annual Northwest Regional Sheriff's Camp was a great success this week. I appreciate all of the volunteers who made it possible to help 75 children learn more about how the Sheriff's departments work to serve the communities in which we live. Thank you to the Porter County Sheriff's Office, Lake County Sheriff's Office, Jasper County Sheriffs Department, La Porte County Sheriff's Office, South Haven Fire Department, Indiana Dunes State Park, Indiana Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officers, and Visit Indiana for making the event possible.
Thank you to everyone who came out to see our demonstration of Project Lifesaver this morning. With generous support from Porter County Triad, the Porter County Sheriff's Office is able to utilize this life-saving program in our community. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders.

I am pleased and honored to formally announce my candidacy for a fourth term as Porter County Sheriff. Throughout my 38 year career in law enforcement, I have been committed to the people of Porter County through trust, respect, and accountability with the opportunity to lead the Porter County Sheriff's Office. I invite you to read my full announcement below and humbly pledge my continued commitment to the people of Porter County. Thank you.

Today I was fortunate to get to speak to 1300 middle school students from Fegely and Kouts about the dangers of heroin. I was accompanied by Valpariso native Herb Stepherson author of Junkbox Diaries, who shared his inspiring personal account of overcoming addiction. Prevention is a key component to tackling the drug problem we are facing, and I am committed to engaging in tough conversations with our youth on the realities and implications of drug use.
