I am honored to serve as your Sheriff for Kent County, Delaware. As Sheriff, I have a personal interest in Kent County and the things that affect our community.

It has been rewarding for me  to have the chance to serve in a leadership role in a place where I am  able to go out and meet many great people of our community.


I have previously served as a Dover City Councilman (2015 – 2019); served on the Capital School Board of Education (2011 –2015) one year as Vice President and served on Dover Human Relations Commission (2008 – 2010). 


As an individual who strongly believes in assisting the community,  I have been involved with many non-profit organizations, including the Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing, Code Purple, Delaware Special Olympics, Dover Volunteer Fire Department, Dover Police Athletic League, the Delaware Multicultural and Civic Organization, and the Kent County SPCA. I am a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus - Holy Cross. Former Member U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Member Sons of the American Legion – Dover. In 2013, I received the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award and in 2014 the Jefferson Award for Public Service.


Though limited  in size the Kent County Sheriff’s Office is a model organization in many ways. I have four deputies and three secretaries who strive each day to better serve the citizens of Kent County in all that they do.
