STAFFORD, VA—Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) visited with Stafford County Sheriff David P. Decatur today to discuss public safety and how they can work together to create and implement a task force to combat the heroin and drug epidemic.
“Bryce and I have a lot in common. We are both Army veterans and have dedicated our lives to serving and protecting our community,” said Sheriff Decatur. “It was great to have him come out and visit today.”
“He is the only candidate running for lieutenant governor with law enforcement experience. We need leaders like him who will work directly with us and make security a priority. Bryce’s visit today shows his commitment to that priority and that’s one reason why I’m proud to support him.”
Sheriff Decatur and his command staff have successfully started and enforced multiple programs in Stafford County to educate our youth, engage the community, and prevent folks from becoming repeat offenders.
Emphasizing the need to build and maintain strong, working relationships with our police and law enforcement, Reeves said, “Now more than ever, we must join forces with local law enforcements to keep our families and our communities safe. It’s amazing to see firsthand the impact that Sheriff Decatur is having by implementing various programs and educating folks in Stafford. I hope to expand these programs and work to create public safety task forces throughout the Commonwealth.”
Reeves continued, “As Lt. Governor, I vow to work tirelessly to ensure that Virginians are safe and secure. I look forward to continuing to work with Sheriff Decatur and with public safety officials across the Commonwealth to follow through on that promise.”
