Jason Sloderbeck, a 23 year veteran of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, and current jail commander, is announcing his candidacy for the 2018 Hamilton County Sheriff race.
With over 23 years of local law enforcement experience, Sloderbeck has an in-depth understanding of the issues facing the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. “I am pleased and honored to announce my candidacy for Sheriff of Hamilton County. During my 23 years in the Sheriff’s Office, I have worked in almost every capacity there is within the agency. I have dealt with the issues first-hand, gaining valuable experience and a thorough understanding of the complexities, capabilities, and limitations of the entire office. I will use my background and hands-on experience to strive for a more efficient and effective office, where every decision affecting our law enforcement is based solely on the safety, security, and financial well-being of the community.”
While Hamilton County is unique in many ways, the major issues facing law enforcement and our community are not much different than other counties around the country. “As sheriff of Hamilton County, I will be committed to raising the standards and expectations of the office, and the agency as a whole. My top priorities are, and will continue to be: the drug addiction problems that are not only affecting our community, but many communities across our nation, the closely related mental health problems that all communities are facing right now, and to constantly be a provider of information and support to our community in order to combat domestic violence and abuse.”
Jason is a lifelong resident of Hamilton County; a graduate of Noblesville High School, Vincennes University, IMPD Leadership Academy, and Hamilton County Leadership Academy. Jason lives in Arcadia with Michelle, his wife of almost 20 years, their 17-year-old daughter Claire, 23-year-old stepdaughter Alyssa, and his 4-year-old German Shepherd, Maddox. His stepson Allen is married and recently had Jason’s first grandson, Dawson.
