Dear Editor:

As a recently retired Police Chief for the Fresno Police Department, and current Mayor Elect for the City of Fresno, It is my honor to provide a letter in support for Jim Garrison in his campaign for Sheriff of Clearwater County, Idaho.

I have known Jim since 1979 when I joined the Fresno Police Department. I worked with Jim over the years until his retirement in 1993. Prior to that Jim was known as a hard working street cop with a vengeance for criminals. He had great investigative skills and a unique ability to communicate with folks from all walks of life. Jim has a personality that people gravitate to.

Jim is a very intelligent and educated person possessing a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology. Jim also possesses a great deal of tactical experience having served many years on the Fresno Police Department’s SWAT team and having served his country in the United States Army.

Jim is a proven leader with a tremendous amount of law enforcement experience having also served with the Washington State University Police Department, US Forest Service as a Park Ranger, and Department of Corrections in both the Adult and Juvenile Correctional facilities.

Jim has a reputation for being hard working, and a person of integrity and compassion. Although the political arena can be a difficult environment to navigate, I am confident that Jim possesses the leadership skills, experience, and fortitude that would serve him well as the Sheriff of Clearwater County.

Jerry Dyer,

Fresno CA
