After four years as Imperial County sheriff, Harold Carter has gained the experience he needs — and has had enough success during his tenure — to merit a second four-year term.
Running the county Sheriff's Office is no easy task and requires a person with the ability to see the bigger picture, which means providing daily services the community demands and looking toward the future needs of our area. Carter has proven he has a strong vision for the department and the county and has the skills to work toward that end while still meeting the daily need for service.
We support Carter's efforts to upgrade the county jail to make it safer for inmates and correctional officers and the work he has put in building up forces to cover the local sand dunes during holiday weekends. He has placed focus on training and his management style has improved the image of the Sheriff's Office.
