Campaign Priorities & Initiatives

As your next Sheriff, I will :

 Work hard to promote and encourage a safer community

 Reinforce the core beliefs of law enforcement to protect and serve

 Strive to bring 21st century procedures and technology to the agency

 Create a culture that will increase employees job satisfaction and morale through listening and supporting them in every way possible.

The political discussions that may take place between now and election day will show that no matter how diverse our communities are, we share common goals - to live in a safe community and the desire for new and better opportunities for future generations. These goals can only be achieved by continuing to work together despite our political differences.

"If elected, it will be my great honor to serve the citizens of Halifax County for the next four years. Although much has been accomplished, there is still much more work to be done. I look forward to the opportunity to be the Sheriff for ALL people of Halifax County!"

-Jimmie Silver, Candidate for Sheriff of Halifax County, N.C.
