The sheriff's department provides critical services to both the incorporated and unincorporated areas of Winnebago County. The sheriff's patrol is the only patrol available to unincorporated areas and those who do have local police forces. We rely on the sheriff's department for back-up when needed and detective services among other services.
In our household we are planning on voting for Sheriff Gary Caruana on November 6th. Sheriff Caruana has a long and distinguished career in the field of security and public safety. He fought hard against massive budget cuts and he is the only one in this race who opposed the county board's effort to cut funding for public safety.
Sheriff Caruana is a man of integrity and he gets the job done. His life has been devoted to security management and police work. Sheriff Caruana has done a great job for those of us in rural areas and we appreciate his commitment to providing Public Safety. He is by far the most qualified candidate for Sheriff.
