GLOBE, ARIZONA (January 30, 2012) — A long time law enforcement officer says he wants to be Gila County’s next sheriff.

Darrell Stubbs has announced his intention to run for Gila County Sheriff on the 2012 ballot. A 25 year law enforcement veteran, Stubbs says, “It’s time we take back our county from this culture of crime that has moved into our communities! Our families deserve it. Our businesses deserve it. Our communities deserve it.”

In addition to being an AZ POST certified peace officer, Stubbs’ work history includes serving as a Gila County deputy sheriff, a patrol officer for the Town of Miami, a member of the Gila County Narcotic Task Force.

Stubbs said he believes that living and working in Gila County for over 40 years gives him a unique perspective on the needs of the people of this county. He has logged thousands of hours patrolling the county roadways and lakes, working in the schools as a resource officer and serving as an instructor in the community and for other police officers in the state.

“I am very familiar with the challenges in serving a rural county,” said Stubbs. “I have first-hand experience in what it takes to be a patrol officer, investigator, and deputy in Gila County.”
