As Tama County Sheriff, I will be dedicated to utilizing every tool at our disposal to bring as much closure to the victim as our office can provide and to take necessary steps to prevent future offenses.

As law enforcement officers, we know that we may not be able to solve every crime that we handle. However, we are and will continue to be committed to making it a top priority to provide comfort and assurance to victims. We will make sure they know that we have done everything in our power to bring justice to their situation.

As Tama County Sheriff, I want to make it very clear that my office will not tolerate any violent acts committed in Tama County. We will hastily and professionally respond to such incidents with diligent use of force. The people of Tama County’s safety is of greatest importance, and we will do everything in our power to ensure it. We will not cater to external influence attempting to question our tactics and performance. We will continue to enforce the laws that uphold the safety and security of Tama County.

We will work closely with the Tama County Attorney’s office to ensure our efforts come to fruition.
