Every year as Sheriff, my family and I hosted a holiday dinner for all of the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Office employees to show our appreciation for their hard work. We personally sponsored this dinner as a thank you for their service.

Personnel are your number one human resource.  They are the most valuable in an organization.  Investing in people and developing upcoming talent builds a strong foundation for the future of the Sheriff’s Office.

During my career, We recruited 42 exceptional employees and promoted 18 future leaders.

As Sheriff, we successfully managed, negotiated and settled:

  • 30 labor grievances set for arbitration
  • 3 unfair labor practices
  • 1 EOC Complaint
  • 2 major union contracts

We made the men and women of the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department a priority, every day.

People not politics!
