(La Porte County, IN) - Another candidate has officially thrown his hat in the ring for next year’s LaPorte County Sheriff election. James Arnold has filed paperwork with the La Porte County Clerk.
Arnold has been with the Sheriff’s Department for 20 years, first as a jail officer, then joining the patrol division in 2001. He now serves as a patrol sergeant.
In a press release, Arnold alluded to “internal issues that need direct attention and action.” His statement continued: “The current morale is at a low point. I will help foster a happier and more positive workplace that would have a direct and immediate impact on all of the employees at the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office as well as the communities they serve.” He said he will issue more specific details in the coming weeks.
Arnold is running as a Democrat.
