To the citizens of Winn Parish,
After careful consideration and prayer, I would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for Sheriff of Winn Parish. My wife, Starr Hanna Womack and I have one son Walter. I grew up in Sikes, attended Dodson High School, and I am a homegrown product of this parish. I believe I know what the citizens expect from their Sheriff’s Office; to be humble and respectful, available when called upon, and to be diligent in working their cases.
My career in law enforcement began ten years ago while I was a student attending LSU-A in Alexandria and working part-time at the Winn Correctional Center. In 2014, I moved to the Sheriff’s Office as a part-time dispatcher and changed my major to Criminal Justice. I accepted a full-time position at the Sheriff’s Office and successfully graduated from the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy as a P.O.S.T. certified police officer. The following year, I attended Tarheel Canine Training Inc. in Sanford, North Carolina and became a certified K-9 handler.
While I am proud of my time at the Sheriff’s Office as a deputy, there are things I would like to do to improve the department and service given to our community. I am experienced and have first-hand knowledge of the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff’s Office. I see the issues that I feel can be changed and I have a plan for the betterment of Winn Parish.
I hope that I have an opportunity to speak to each one of you. Thank you for your time and I look forward to visiting with you.
