Letter: Rilee for Sheriff
The Fraternal Order of Police believes that Larry Rilee will make a great sheriff and a great leader for Gloucester County. We believe that Larry has the background and the characteristics to proactively deal with crime. Moreover, he will insure that we do not turn a blind eye to coming problems and the right ideas and beliefs to put the sheriff’s vote for a leader, a listener and a lawman that will put all of Gloucester first.
The current sheriff has been in office for four years. Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in property crime and a lack of focus on drug dealing and the violence associated. Larry Rilee is the only candidate that understands and has acknowledged this problem. This election is not about individuals, it’s about the safety, security and the future of Gloucester County. Larry will bring a clear, fresh and community-policing centered approach to law enforcement. This is something that will be new and quite beneficial to Gloucester County and its future development.
