It is with great pleasure and honor that I write this letter endorsing my friend and fellow York County row officer Rich Keuerleber for re-election as York County Sheriff.

Sheriff Keuerleber has the experience and true-tested leadership to be re-elected as York County sheriff.

His commitment to excellence has guided his department over the past 12 years building relationships with communities promoting their involvement in crime prevention. In the past nine months staff has attended 73 community-based events and fingerprinted over 500 children. The department assisted 12 municipalities during the August 2019 National Night Out program.

The court division under his leadership provides security for 14 Common Pleas judges and five senior judges. The past nine months 3,820 prisoners and 278 juveniles were transported for court proceedings.

Under Sheriff Keuerleber's leadership there are four K-9s assigned to the K-9 division. These K-9s are trained in explosives detection, tracking, area searches, evidence recovery and narcotics detection for the York County District Attorney’s Office Drug Task Force. The past nine months the division has responded to 172 calls for service and participated in 162 public appearances and demonstrations.

The civil process division deputies have 21st century technology in-car computer hardware, increasing mobility throughout the civil process.

Sheriff Keuerleber is a true servant leader, with an attitude to serve, is creative and innovative in his decision-making. His dedication has established the York County Sheriff’s Office as one of the most respected sheriff offices in the commonwealth. Many of the technology advancements under his leadership have now been implemented by sheriff offices across the United States and in over 39 counties in the commonwealth.

I urge all York County voters to join with me on Tuesday, Nov. 5, and re-elect Rich Keuerleber York County sheriff.
