Sproul wants you to call him Sheriff

July 9, 2007

Albany--  A long-time crimefighter wants to claim the top spot in the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.

A big crowd of supporters turned out Monday night to help Kevin Sproul kick off his campaign. He officially announced hat he's running for Dougherty County Sheriff.

As a 25-year veteran of the Dougherty County Sheriff's office, Sproul says he has a passion for law enforcement. He wants to use that passion as Sheriff and make some changes.  

"The citizens want to see law enforcement doing law enforcement work. They want to see us out there doing what we're paid to do. You know? Addressing the crime situations whether it's street gangs or drugs or domestic violence against each other," said Sproul.  

The July 2008 primary is a year away. Sproul says he'll spend that time talking to the people of the county and raising money for his campaign.
