A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM MARK WOOD
Thank you for taking time to visit my website!
The 2019 election for Sheriff in Rapides Parish is an important and critical event for our community. We must replace retiring Sheriff William Earl Hilton, true law enforcement professional.
For the past 20 years, I have served in the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office. During my last years there, I attained the rank of Major in charge of the Enforcement Division. In this position, I was responsible for much of the real law enforcement operations of your Sheriff’s Office; patrol officers and patrols, the D.A.R.E. Program, our school safety officers, and the Reserve Deputy Program. I am also a member of the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team as well as the Violent Crime and Narcotics Taskforce, Louisiana Sheriff’s Association.
I have since left my job in the Sheriff’s Office to run in this election. I did not want to campaign while on the public’s payroll!
As a result of this management experience, I am ready to be your Sheriff.
YOUR SECURITY, AND YOUR FAMILY’S SECURITY, IS MY TOP PRIORITY.
I will be your security Sheriff.
Please continue to read this website. You will find my top 3 priorities: better training, expansion of substations, and reordering resources to put more patrols on our streets and roads. You will also discover my background and training. Finally, you will get to know me and my family.
I love serving the people of Rapides Parish. I want to continue as YOUR SECURITY SHERIFF.
I humbly ask for your support and vote!
