Dudley Mug

Current St. Joseph Police Department sergeant Keith Dudley announced he's running for Buchanan County Sheriff. A 17-year veteran of the department, Dudley said he'd like to recruit and retain more sheriff's deputies and increase communication between local law enforcement agencies. He's critical of the training deputies currently get, and said his lack of extensive command experience isn't a major drawback to his campaign because he'd rely on some of the current command staff at the sheriff's department.
