Unlike other law enforcement agencies, the Sheriff's office has direct accountability to citizens
through the election of the Sheriff.
The Office of Sheriff is not a department of county government, it is the independent office through which the
Sheriff exercises the powers of the public trust.
You- the voters- are tasked with choosing a Sheriff who will lead with your best interests in mind.
Elected sheriffs are accountable directly to the constitution of their state, the United States Constitution, statutes, and the citizens of their county. The sheriff must work with all segments of government to serve and protect the citizens of the county.
Your Sheriff must be someone who puts politics aside and leads with integrity.
The preservation of the Office of Sheriff is vital in our republic. Outside a few elected town marshals, the Sheriff is the only head of a law enforcement agency in this nation that is accountable directly to the people of his /her jurisdiction.
Choose a Sheriff who is proud to answer to the citizens of Shelby County. Choose Chad Smith.
My priorities can be summed up in three words:
Faith, Family, Community
I invite you to meet my family and learn more about me.
You deserve a Sheriff who leads with your best interests in mind and has the drive and experience to protect and serve Shelby County for the next four years and beyond.
As your Sheriff, my goal is to meet the public safety needs of every citizen of our county. If you have a question for me, please submit it here and I'll be happy to answer it and personally contact you.
