Sheriff candidate Phillip Bradford announces platform

Candidate for Newton County Sheriff Phillip Bradford announced his platform Friday, pledging to fight the war on drugs, take a stand against crime, protect the children of the community and take a stand on fiscal responsibility and accountability.

Bradford said that his plan was to use resources from the Newton County Sheriff's Office to get into neighborhoods and take a proactive approach against crime; that he wanted to seek resources to help battle drugs with no extra cost to the taxpayer; provide more training to deputies; seek qualified candidates for the NCSO; enhance the job of school resource officers; improve training for patrol deputies; work with the juvenile court and the Newton County Board of Education to seek solutions to keep children safe; and work with the county and NCSO leaders to maintain a balanced budget.

"I have the experience in preparing and managing a law enforcement budget during tough economic times," said Bradford in a press release. "I have been effective in ‘doing more with less.' I promise that I will spend the hard-earned tax money that is entrusted to my office efficiently. I will find ways to become more efficient and cut cost with as little if any impact on the services provided by the department."

Bradford has been in law enforcement for 26 years and currently serves at the Covington Police Department as the captain of the criminal investigation division.

"I feel that I have the knowledge, innovative ideas, training and management skills to reduce crime in our county with specific emphasis on stopping the distribution of narcotics that destroy our neighborhoods and increase thefts," he said.
