Crime & Public Safety

Across the nation, violent crime rates are skyrocketing. At the same time, progressive prosecutors are letting serial criminals go free. Radical activists have pushed to "defund" the police, and retirement and retention rates for law enforcement officers are moving in the wrong direction.

As a former sheriff, I know what it takes to keep our communities safe.

To protect our communities, we must stand up for law and order. As a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, I'm fighting to ensure that law enforcement is able to do its job and keep criminals off the streets.
