I want to thank the citizens and voters of Polk County as I announce my retirement, effective December 31, 2015, for the support and belief you have had in me as your Sheriff. While it has been a wonderful journey and I have valued the trust you have placed on me, it now comes time for my wife Gail and I to begin enjoying more time with our children and grandchildren. After carrying the badge for nearly 39 years, and 16 of those years as your Sheriff I can tell you it is bitter sweet to announce my retirement.  However, Gail will retire on the same day after 27 years working at Western Oregon University, it is now time for us to begin enjoying more time together.
