We are ~mong the few professions that still make house calls. I believe we are called to serve everyone in Hidalgo County regardless of their address, economic status, political preference, religious practice, or racial/ethnic origin. I don't believe the customer is always right, but they are ALWAYS the customer. Every customer will be treated with respect even if some think they may not deserve it. Being Commnnity Minded-The Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office will work for YOU. The Sheriff's Office will exist for YOU and not you for the Sheriff's office. I will continue to actively involve myself and my staff in community events. The only time that you see me will NOT be at the final portion of my term when re-election is my only effort. I plan to institute a deputy reserve program, and from this effort, identify and train volunteers to assist with community issues, as they relate to the safety of our county. (!rime Figl|liDg-Criminal activity cannot be ignored by law enforcement. Law enforcement should not negotiate with criminals who participate in illegal activity. To ensure a safe Hidalgo County, fighting crime must be a constant effort-not just a response after an offense has occurred. Preventive measures must be taken by both citizens and law enforcement. I will assist in creating responsive groups within communities as needed, such as: citizen patrols, citizen police academy, CPR training, personal safety programs, and resident surveys. Employee De, elapment-An informed and educated law enforcement officer is a worthy officer. With my extensive training and public safety background, I will ensure that your deputies are adequately and regularly trained. I will require that my deputies set professional, developmental goals, and I will assist them in achieving their professional goals. I will establish a merit based pay scale within the Sheriff's Office that will ensure that the department offers competitive wages to our employees. This should assist in retaining qualified employees and cut down on the expenses of retraining new employees. I will seek a national, departmental accreditation for the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, hgen C,opernlien-Hidalgo County is unique in its geographical location. With ttiis uniqueness come many different challenges. We share an international border with Mexico, state border with Arizona (Cochise and Greenlee Counties) and Grant County to our North and Eastern boundaries. Most major emergency events will force agencies and families to work together towards a common goal. However, to become effective, such cooperation must be common practice. Within our county, we have local, county, state, and federal agencies, which are all vital to law enforcement's ability to operate successfully within their respected areas. I pledge that the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office will work together with other agencies to ensure a safe county Need to Embrnee Medermi~ation-Our Sheriff's Office must be knowledgeable with new evolving laws, methods, and technologies to better protect our communities. Failure to update equipment, training methods, and SOP's, will result in disaster. Being effective as an agency is no accident. It is the result of intelligent efforts matched with the desire to produce a worthy outcome. We Need te Prepnre far Ibe Fmtnre-I want to see our emergency service responders-not just on the same page-but actively working together to write those pages. We can't afford to wait for an emergency to happen to learn what we could have done. As your sheriff, I will put into action efforts to harmonize the workability of all emergency responders to include EMS, fire and law enforcement. I will assist in finding grants to get EMS personnel to some of our rural areas, l will actively seek youth programs such as D.A.R.E., career development groups, child safety initiatives, gun safety awareness, peer outreach programs, and school resource officers. We need to ensure our children and future generations have a chance for a good future! Vehat qualifications do I ka, e that iil en ,ff !, ill he a eood heriff? . , i ......
