The hardworking men and women of the Kootenai County Sheriff’s office deserve strong, fair and honest leadership.

In addition to being a person of impeccable character, your Undersheriff will meet the following requirements:

  • Long time, sworn law enforcement professional.
  • Currently certified, or qualified to obtain Idaho P.O.S.T. certification.
  • Well respected in the law enforcement community.
  • Superb orator.
  • Affable personality.
  • Keen sense of humor.
  • Has the courage to point out problems wherever they exist, not a yes-man.
  • A proficient troubleshooter.
  • Lives according the concepts of “Servant Leadership”.
  • Has the full support of their spouse.
  • Shares my passion for perfection and hard work, as the first year will require long workdays to meet our goals.

Even though I have already identified and spoken with a few solid individuals who meet these requirements, given the importance of the position, it would be unwise to make a commitment this early in the race.
