I have known Sheriff John Burns for all of his law enforcement career. He has always shown honesty and integrity in dealing with the department and the people of this county.
Sheriff Burns is well respected by other agencies and has worked with these agencies to keep the citizens of Jefferson County safe.
Sheriff Burns has the backing and confidence of the members of the department, and this is evident by the high morale in the department. He is a man who can be trusted to handle any problems that arise in the department.
