Hear why community leaders across Allen County support Dave Gladieux for a second term as Allen County Sheriff.

tomIt is hard to believe that I have known Dave Gladieux as long as I have on both a personal and professional basis. As a young Sheriff’s deputy, wanting to “save the world” and protect the citizenry of Allen County a couple of decades ago, to today, the Chief Deputy of Indiana’s largest county, he remains the same dedicated and hard-working public servant!

karen In order to be an effective Sheriff, one needs the street experience of a police officer, the administrative capability to manage a department with a $20 million budget and the experience of running a jail facility.  Dave Gladieux’s good judgment,  leadership skills, knowledge of Allen County government and 7 years experience as Chief Deputy Sheriff make him the right choice to be our next Allen County Sheriff.  I wholeheartedly support Dave and look forward to working with him as a law enforcement team for the next 4 years!

lindaDave Gladieux has been the perfect mix of talents our next Allen County Sheriff will need.  He is a proven leader and experienced police officer, both of which are crucial to keeping our community safe in challenging times.  He is also a fiscal conservative, which means we can expect the most from the dollars taxpayers invest in criminal justice.  I am excited to support Dave for Allen County Sheriff!

Rusty York In my years as Police Chief, and now as Public Safety Director, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Chief Deputy Dave Gladieux on several critical issues that contributed to the overall public safety and well being of the residents of Allen County/Fort Wayne.  In my experience, few people display the commitment to our residents, the attention to detail, the compassion to those affected by public safety issues and the genuine interest in the well being of our public safety officers like Chief Deputy Dave Gladieux does.  I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Dave for over a decade, and I look forward to working with him as Sheriff of Allen County for the next four years!  Public safety is everyone’s business and I know Dave will stay actively involved to ensure Allen County/Fort Wayne residents continue to enjoy the peace of mind and quality of life our residents have come to enjoy, and deserve.
