My name is
Kirk Launius,
and I am asking for your vote.

As a United States Navy Veteran, former Dallas police officer, and businessman in the security industry, I bring my leadership and management skills to work every day. I believe the people of Dallas County should know their sheriff by name, understand the sheriff's responsibilities, and see those duties being effectively carried out on a daily basis.

Your SHERIFF is the county's chief law enforcement officer and has jurisdiction in all areas of the county, including cities within Dallas County.

I will fulfill all of my duties as Dallas County Sheriff, and I will...


BOOST morale from the bottom up

DELIVER the highest quality law enforcement services within the approved budget

SERVE the people as an ACCOUNTABLE public official

FIGHT corruption and bring lawbreakers to justice

PROTECT your life, liberty, and property
