Letter: Sumner County Sheriff employees endorse Darren Chambers

Sumner Newscow report — The following is a letter to the editor from employees of the Sumner County Sheriff’s office:


As employees of the Sumner County Sheriffs Office, we feel strongly about having an opportunity to give residents of Sumner County some insight. In fact, we feel that it is our duty to let you know how we feel and what we have experienced since Darren Chambers took office in 2011. He has made significant improvements over time; pay increases, adequate staffing, budget improvements, increased training, and restored security within the Detention Facility.

In addition to these improvements, Darren is attentive to all aspects that make the office run smoothly. He has an exemplary relationship with multi jurisdictions, including all municipal police departments within the County, as well as each Sheriff within the state of Kansas. By building strong relationships, there is an ease and willingness to help each other with additional resources. In the last nine years, there has been a respectful mutual aid between multiple outside agencies. The rebirth of these solid relationships has been fundamental in benefiting the best interest of Sumner County.
