We all want a sheriff who is effective at fighting crime. But fighting crime means more that just enforcing laws and arresting criminals. Fighting crime also means preventing crimes from happening. Anyone who has been a crime victim knows it would have been far better if the crime had never happened.
I am supporting Dave Bentrud for Stearns County sheriff because I have worked with Dave on projects to reduce crime and I have seen his skill and dedication. With 26 years of law-enforcement experience, including 10 years as Waite Park’s chief of police, Dave has a proven record as an effective crime fighter. With his commitment to collaboration among law-enforcement agencies and with the public, he is a leader who builds a safer and stronger community by bringing people together.
As sheriff, Dave will bring his experience, and the connections he has built across the county, to create partnerships that give the sheriff’s department a fresh look at fighting crime. His open communication within the department, with other departments and with average citizens will be a solid foundation for a safer community.
Join me in voting for Dave Bentrud.
