The Sheriff’s Guide to Navigating The Politics of Homelessness, Addictions & Mental Illness

This is a recording of my presentation to the 2024 National Sheriffs’ Association Winter Conference in Washington, D.C.

I cover issues such as:

  • How did homelessness, addictions and mental illness become a law enforcement issue?
  • How to navigate the politics of these issues (and not lose the next election).
  • Redefining the sheriff’s role in the 21st Century: You can no longer “stay in your lane.
  • Legal issues including the upcoming SCOTUS case Johnson v. Grants Pass Oregon.
