Sacramento County is going to be looking for a new Sheriff in 2022 as current Sheriff Scott Jones seeks a Congressional seat. After 12 years as Sheriff and 33 years with the force, he's looking for something different. His endorsed replacement is Jim Barnes, a 22 year veteran with the Sacramento County Sheriffs department. Join our conversation as I talk with Jim about his motivation for the job, his interests and what he thinks he brings to the table. Why is he a great choice? With crime on the rise, challenges with the state legislature and legal entitlements now favoring the criminals, what really needs to be done? Hear Jim explain his perspective and his expectations should he be chosen by the people as the next Sheriff of Sacramento County.
In full disclosure, this interview was done before any other candidates arose and since that time, a current Assemblymember has also decided to run for the role as well. Jim Cooper will also be on the ballot as of this point in time.
