My name is Harold Ford, and I am committed to providing the most accomplished public safety services to the citizens of Henrico County. I will achieve this mission by providing support for our law enforcement partners and building stronger partnerships within our communities. I envision a department with the paramount level of law enforcement professionalism, detention, and court security that will protect and preserve the Constitutional Rights of all people. Together, we can make a meaningful difference-- for our families, our communities, and our country.
I have served my country and my community for over 25 years. I am running for Sheriff because we need leadership in the Sheriff 's Office that is willing to stand up for what is right and work hard for all departmental staff, detainees and all of our fellow citizens. My goals are simple:
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

experienced negative consequences of that behavior or have been trained to extinguish
