LOGAN — Cache County Sheriff Lynn Nelson said he plans to run again for the top law enforcement position in the county.
Nelson was guest on <a href=”http://www.610kvnu.com/podcasts/cross-talk” target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk Show</a>, Wednesday and said he is excited to be apart of the sheriff’s office.
“It’s a different political office than most political offices because it ties in with a career in law enforcement,” said Nelson. “Really you have to be a certified law enforcement officer to run for sheriff and so it’s not just a political thing but it’s part of a career and it’s something I’ve been very committed to.”
Nelson said he is excited to see the progress the sheriff’s office has made and the development of how they can better serve the citizens.
“You know, my interactions with the citizens, I think they appreciate us and recognize the job we do and how well we do it”
Nelson has been with the Cache County Sheriff’s Office for 33 years. He was elected in 1998.
Monday, Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Chad Jensen announced he planned to run for the sheriff’s position.
The filling period for all Cache county candidates, including sheriff, begins March 14 and ends March 20.
