Jim Tucker, a 24 year veteran of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's office, has formed a committee and will seek the Office of Sheriff as a Democratic candidate in 2014.
As a life long Vanderburgh County resident, Tucker has spent the majority of his adult life in the public service sector. He has served on the Perry Township Fire Department and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office. He has also served the community through various civic organizations and youth groups.
Tuckers' committee says he has every intention to raise the morale of the Sheriff's Office and to bring new vision and streamlined law enforcement to the citizens of Vanderburgh County. They say he will work hard to reduce the budget in this already stressed economy, without compromising the safety of the citizens of this county.
Tucker will release his plan to improve the agency in the weeks to come.
Tucker is a graduate of F.J. Reitz High School and the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in Plainfield, Indiana. He currently resides in northern Vanderburgh County with his wife Melissa and their three daughters.
According to his committee, Tuckers' decision to seek this office is based on the overwhelming support of friends, family and Vanderburgh County residents to bring new vision, streamline law enforcement, and accountability to the office of the Sheriff.
