I am writing in support of the re-election of Bryan Murphy to the office of Allen County sheriff. Bryan came to Allen County in 1994 from Wyandotte County where he was employed in the sheriff’s department there. To date, he has 24-plus years in law enforcement at the county level. He has worked under Sheriff Ron Moore and Sheriff Tom Williams. He has served in the capacity of patrol officer, undersheriff and is presently serving as sheriff. I have worked with Bryan for several years and always found him to be knowledgeable and prepared for the task set out for him.
Sheriff Murphy is in charge of the sheriff’s department and the jail and is the chief administrative officer of both. He employs about 30 people in the two departments. In every year he has managed to keep the expenditures of both departments in budget.
