My Platform. Read my detailed plan to improve and maintain an efficient Sheriff's Department here in Marion County.

More could be done to assist the other crime fighting agencies of Marion County. Sheriff Grimes will:
Under Sheriff Grimes the Marion County Sheriff’s Office will use proven cost-cutting measures and performance measures in the management of its daily activities. This will result in the more cost effective use of the Sheriff’s Budget, the people’s money.
Sheriff Grimes will work with the various parts of the community to ensure community involvement in the Department where community action can help bolster limited resources. The various professional and cultural communities within Indianapolis have many resources that can assist the Sheriff’s Department in their various programs. The Department will partner with these communities to provide better support for the operations of the Department.
Sheriff Grimes will work with employees of the Department to make the working environment safer for not only the employees but those people that the employees interact with. All employees will be sent to introductory training as well as other training opportunities as they present themselves. This will be done effectively and efficiently with minimal cost to the taxpayers of Marion County.
