Larry Burns has a proven record of reducing violent crime by bringing law enforcement and the community to work together. That is why he has such strong support from citizens he has served and the men and women who protect our neighborhoods. They trust Larry Burns.
Letter From Larry
I appreciate your taking the time to visit my website, where you can learn about me and my vision for the future of Metro and our community. I hope you will also sign up to be a member of our campaign team.
I made the decision to run for sheriff because I want to continue working to reduce violent crime, demonstrate real responsibility with taxpayer dollars by evaluating every expenditure and position in Metro, ensure greater accountability in the department, and work with other agencies to improve school safety.
I retired from Metro in December after 27 years with the department. While there, I held many different positions, including the longest-serving tactical commander of the S.W.A.T. team. My proudest achievement came during my three years as commander of the Bolden Area Command, where we expanded community policing and reduced the crime rate at a time it was rising in other areas.

I hope you will feel free to contact me any time at 702-445-8700. You can also submit questions electronically on the Ask Larry Burns page.
I look forward to talking with you soon.
