With rising crime rates and fewer law enforcement officers in Clark County, it’s time for a new sheriff in town. With his extensive experience in the field, sheriff candidate Rey Reynolds, has the solutions we need.
In his work with the Vancouver Police Department, Rey developed a program that brings government-funded and private business resources together to tackle homelessness. He also wants to implement a program that will utilize officers from specialty units and patrol units together to reduce crime in a targeted area, which will help overcome the staffing shortage.
It’s that kind of innovation, experience, and knowledge of our community that show Rey Reynolds has the solutions to make our communities safer.
