It has been my honor and privilege to serve as YOUR Sheriff since 2006. Frederick County is my lifelong home, the home to generations of the Jenkins family, and the home to many of my friends, makes my service as your Sheriff especially rewarding. Over my career as a Deputy Sheriff and 15 years as your Sheriff, this agency has become a premier and nationally recognized law enforcement and corrections agency serving more than 272,000 residents in Maryland’s largest land mass county.
The role of Sheriff is to enforce the laws, remove criminals from our streets, safeguard the rights and liberties of the individual, and make every effort to protect the lives, homes, and properties of every citizen. That’s exactly what I stand for. I’m seeking re-election to a fifth term as your Sheriff for many reasons. The most important is to continue making the policy and operational decisions that best serve public safety and uphold the law in Frederick County.
I proudly stand on the fact that people know me as a “law and order Sheriff” and that I will not back down on my beliefs as to what it takes maintain law and order in our county. We live in a society with laws that have to be enforced and we have to hold criminals accountable and justly punish them for the crimes they commit. My staunch positions on illegal immigration, open borders, enforcement of our immigration laws in regard to crime and public safety, and the removal of criminal aliens is nationally recognized.
