DU: What do you see is the biggest need of law enforcement in Shelby County?
Koonce: The support of the people, and I am going to make sure that this is a department that the people can support.
Treat people fairly and with respect.
Miller: The biggest need of law enforcement in Shelby County is strong leadership and a long term commitment to service. Strong leadership comes from integrity, honesty and trust. There are many aspects to Strong leadership. The first is having good working relationships between all agencies. I consider the good working relationships I have built with Federal, State and local agencies as one of my greatest accomplishments during my two terms as sheriff. A long term commitment of service to the people of Shelby County is maintaining an “Open Door Policy”. All citizens should have access to their sheriff, as an elected official I make myself available to them in my office or in public.
DU: The candidates closed by speaking to the voters:
Koonce: To the voters, every four years the Sheriff’s position becomes available and the people have a right to choose. The choice is your on March 18, 2014.
Miller: I am proud to serve Shelby County as your sheriff and would greatly appreciate your continued support.
