TULSA, OK – Native Tulsa businessman and veteran law enforcement officer Russell Crow has announced his candidacy for Tulsa County Sheriff.
“I will seek the Republican nomination for Tulsa County Sheriff in the primary election held June 28,” said Crow. “With over eighteen years of combined law enforcement experience, I plan to bring strength of character, my proven law enforcement experience, and my commitment to integrity to lead the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and serve the people of Tulsa County.”
Crow continued, “I understand the problems facing Tulsa County and the Sheriff’s Office. I am committed to changing the culture in the Sheriff’s Office so that the best interests of Tulsa County residents are always at the center of every decision.”
When asked about his motivation for running in the Republican primary this summer, Crow said, “By serving Tulsa County as a Deputy, I have seen and experienced first-hand the widespread problems within the Office and the need for a cultural change. After evaluating the candidates running in the special election this spring, I recognized that Tulsa County needs a Sheriff with a more clear understanding of the current culture within the Sheriff’s Office and why the situation demands a change. The people need a selfless, independent-thinking Sheriff who answers to the people of Tulsa County, not to special interests.”
Crow has over eighteen years of law enforcement experience, having served in the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and the Tulsa Police Department. Crow has also owned a private investigation firm, performing hundreds of investigations, consulting with businesses and government entities on all issues of loss control that included fraud, embezzlement, asset protection, liability issues and worker compensation fraud.
“I am committed to conservative principles,” said Crow. “I have been a defender of liberty and I believe that a limited government is best positioned to serve its people. As Sheriff, I will take these principles to heart to best serve the people of Tulsa County.”
Crow and his wife, Julie, a dental hygienist, are active members of Cedar Point Church. They have three grown children, a granddaughter, and a new grandson due this summer.
The special general election to serve out the term of Sheriff Stanley Glanz was held on April 5th. The primary election for Tulsa County Sheriff for the next four-year term will be held June 28th. You can find more information about the candidates on FortySix News 2016 Election Page.
