The Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in Montgomery County?
The Sheriff is accountable directly to you, the citizens of Montgomery County?
Your right to vote for your Sheriff is guaranteed by the Maryland Constitution?
I believe that every individual has the right to live in a safe County, to peacefully live their lives without living in fear of becoming a victim of crime. As the Sheriff, I will seek constant input from all individuals and ensure that exceptional law enforcement services are provided to you, the taxpayer.
The status-quo is not good-enough. Crime is rising and criminals are evolving. Law enforcement must stay steps-ahead to keep the people of Montgomery County safe. To meet the challenges of the 21st century criminal, we must have a 21st century Sheriff’s office at the cutting edge of technology and law enforcement tactics. Most importantly, the Sheriff must stand united with the people he is elected to serve and protect. A direct line of communication is vital to build trust with the diverse communities and neighborhoods the comprise Montgomery County.
To accomplish this, I will rely on 5 pillars:
I am MCPD Deputy Commander, Lieutenant Jae Hwang, with over 15 years of law enforcement service, and also a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserve. I am a husband, father, and life-long resident of Montgomery County. I have dedicated my life and career in public service. Now, I ask you to please join me in a grassroots effort to restore safety and security for all citizens of Montgomery County as your Sheriff.
As your Sheriff, I will restore your safety and security in Montgomery County.
In your service,
