Chad McBride plans to officiallyannounce next Tuesday that he will be running for the office of Anderson County Sheriff. Prior to speaking to a group of residents in Williamston Tuesday, McBride, 37, told The Journal he plans to be tough on crime and bring a new strategy to law enforcement in Anderson County.
“I want the community to know they have a candidate that will be extremely tough on crime,” McBride said.
He said he plans to “improve law enforcement in Anderson County and wants to provide excellence in the service they receive from the sheriff’s office.”
McBride said he plans to bring a good strategy to improve response times and improve the quality of investigations.
“Law enforcement has changed over the last decade,” he said. “I plan to use a more modern approach, with better strategies and efforts to reduce crime and the number of criminals in Anderson County.”
McBride has 14 years experience in law enforcement. He served in the US Army Reserves and in the National Guard. He is currently an adjunct professor in the Criminal Justice program at Anderson University and the Safety Director for New Spring Church.
“I look forward to meeting as many people as I can and to get input to better serve and provide better response in their communities.”
