Jim Smith wins Kosciusko County Sheriff's race

Jim Smith has won the Kosciusko County Sheriff's race. He defeated James Marshall with 63% of the vote.

Smith is the Republican candidate who campaigned with the promise, if elected, to lower his salary to be aligned with other sheriffs throughout the state of Indiana.

Smith also campaigned to reduce the influx of narcotics, specifically fentanyl into the jails to curb the overdose rate.

Marshall, an Independent, said he would work to restore an open line of communication between the sheriff's office and other local police departments within the county.

James has experience in training and wanted to increase the volume of training for all officers within the department.

Both candidates are Army veterans and have over 20 years experience in law enforcement.
