Three Republicans set sights on sheriff's office

(Continued)

In addition to spending 10 years in the military, Bradley has served under four different sheriffs. “I have been involved in some capacity with law enforcement since leaving the military in 1992.”

Mann, who has been with the Versailles Police Department since 2003 and town marshal/chief since 2006, notes, “I am responsible for and in charge of the other deputies .... as well as the police department budget, equipment and vehicle purchases, maintenance and anything else that may arise.” He has training in many areas, including drug identification, driving while intoxicated detection, standard field sobriety tests, patrol stops, interviews, interrogations and child abuse investigations. He is a certified K-9 handler and firearms and swift assisted victim extraction system instructor.

Each officer seeker has his own policing philosophy. Bradley’s is “to serve the community in a manner that is committed to excellence through integrity, compassion, fairness and service.”

Cumberworth maintains, “I will continue with the many normal duties of the sheriff’s department while focusing on the problem areas with special enforcement, working with all local and state authorities in a joint effort to use available resources to reduce problem areas by using undercover investigation, drug interdiction and K-9 enforcement.”

Mann reports his is “that of a pro-active nature instead of a reactive one, to work with individuals and groups of citizens to identify and resolve issues which affect the livability in Ripley County as a whole. This also consists of working well with other law enforcement entities in and around the county so that we can all work together in addressing the area problems.”

The three individuals also have ideas for new programs they would like to add. Mann hopes to institute a county K-9 program. “I was a K-9 officer in Versailles for several years, and I know firsthand the positive impact that program will have on the drug problem in our county. I currently have a school resource officer in place at the South Ripley schools and Southeastern Career Center. This was achieved by working cooperatively with these schools to obtain grant and local funding .... It has made a positive impact on these schools. That program and others like it have my full support, and, if elected sheriff, I would be available to assist other schools in this endeavor.”
