I am a police commander with a law enforcement agency in Colorado.
I have known, worked with, and have continued to have contact with Kim Pound since he became a police officer 20 years ago.
Kim is a well-educated, highly trained, and dedicated law enforcement officer with lots of experience.
Additional attributes of Kim is that he is a caring, and compassionate person -- which are necessary attributes to be a good leader of a law enforcement agency. You can be assured that Kim will listen to any issues and concerns from community members and his employees, and will work hard toward resolutions.
Kim is a person of high integrity, and maintains high standards and work ethics. He will demand, not only of himself but, all staff members of the sheriff's department, provide the best professional law enforcement service to all of the citizens of Gila County.
Kim is a proven leader in the law enforcement profession, and I believe he will make an outstanding sheriff.
I strongly encourage the citizens of Gila County to vote for Kim Pound.
