"Big 3"
Tools, Technology, Training

In the last decade in the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, there have been unsuccessful investigations for major crimes, a lack of investment in the "Big 3”; Tools, Technology, and Training for Officers, and a tone set resulting in public distrust based on discrimination and lack of leadership striving for integrity and inclusivity.  

  • I want to share the latest tools, technology, and training with the Officers I want to lead.  
  • I want to make a significant impact on people’s lives through inclusion, trust, and knowledge. 
  • I want to ensure the public safety of all Osceola County residents as I fulfill my duties and responsibilities as the Sheriff. 
  • I want to restore the community’s trust and confidence in the Sheriff’s Office and to reverse the undercurrent of bias that echoes today.
  •  I want to be a fiscally responsible public servant dedicated to Public Safety.  I will promote not to "De-Fund" the agency but to "Re-Allocate" funds to fight crime.
  • I want to usher in a new era of intelligence-led, community-based policing focused on accountability and professionalism.
  • I want to prioritize an increase in officer training to improve the outcomes in emergency response times and investigation skills including providing advanced technology and tools to help deputies in the field.
  • I want to introduce Intelligence Led Policing and Community Oriented Policing to address the unprecedented growth in Osceola County.  Our residents deserve a professional law enforcement agency that has embraced fair, responsive, inclusive, community-based policing models.
  • I want citizens to have a voice and feel protected by law enforcement. I want to hear from them, and I will listen.  I want to build a partnership with the community and our Sheriff Deputies. I want open communication between the county residents and law enforcement for the betterment of public safety.
  •  I want to retain top talent and allow for ways to incentivize Officers and civilian employees that will not lead to burnout and stress. There is currently a revolving door of personnel at the entry-level of the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies are leaving for higher-paying jobs causing shortages in staffing and an increase in burdening our Officers with excess overtime inciting burnout and stress in a career that should be dedicated to ensuring public safety. I will make the job of an Osceola County Deputy the most sought-after law enforcement job in Central Florida. 
  • I want to work with our brothers and sisters in other law enforcement agencies on collaborated efforts to off set the costs and improve services and response time ensuring public safety in Osceola County.
