By now, many of you know that Sheriff Tim Allen will not be seeking re-election. He has retired after an illustrious, successful, and effective career in public service. Sheriff Allen has been a strong leader in law enforcement who established high levels of trust and integrity within the Roanoke City Sheriff’s Office. His footprint on the Roanoke City Sheriff’s Office and the City as a whole will be everlasting.
Our citizens need an experienced Sheriff who has developed trust and integrity throughout our community and who has the leadership/ability to lead us into the future. It is vitally important to elect an individual with vision, a willingness to get involved, and who possess an understanding of the challenging needs of our community and department.
