Chief Investigator Jay Henry is looking to win the seat of Henry County’s new sheriff.
For over 12 years, Henry has worked with the district attorney’s office.
He said the reason he wants to run for sheriff is that he wants to serve the people of Henry County and give them the best service and protection he can.
He says that, if elected, the first thing he wants to do is get the law enforcement agencies united.
“We’ve got to unite these law enforcement agencies, get them together, get them on the same radio frequency so they can communicate with each other to not only protect the officers that are out there but to better protect the citizens of Henry County,” he said.
Henry said that by going out in the community, he has been able to see the good and the bad in order to see what he needs to do to help the citizens if he is elected as sheriff.
