Commitment to the Rock Island County Taxpayer

As your Sheriff, I wore a “governing hat” in all decisions. At all times, my decisions were bipartisan, not by party. I believe in the transparency of local government. You knew where I stood on issues, most notably taxes. As a co-manager of Rock Island County and leader as one of the largest entities in the county budget, I delivered on my promise to work within the means of a reasonable budget, finding expense savings without sacrificing jobs, developing creative revenue generating programs, and motivating personnel to achieve departmental goals for overall productivity. I came to the table with solutions and strategies to address on-going issues. Under my leadership, the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department produced results.


“As your Sheriff, I will continue my commitment to explore all options for revenues and cost savings so as to avoid burdening local businesses and middle class families with more taxes.”

 – Sheriff Jeff Boyd
