Kim Bogart

Pasco sheriff

Thank you for stating Kim Bogart "has the education, experience and knowledge to lead the Sheriff's Office." I'm proud of my 31-year law enforcement career and my commitment to Pasco County.

I intend to utilize my experience and expertise to transition the Sheriff's Office into a world-class organization focused completely on your family's safety. I have a seven point plan to accomplish that mission:

• Focus on public safety — not politics.

• Implement aggressive crime-reduction strategies.

• Ensure transparency and accountability.

• Attain law enforcement accreditation.

• Implement aggressive recruitment and retention strategies.

• Build a foundation of community involvement.

• Implement an inmate community re-entry program.

I have dedicated my life to fighting for your family's safety and promoting a strong criminal justice system.

I ask that you vote for K. Bogart for sheriff.
