Phil Byrd For Guilford County Sheriff
IT'S TIME TO BRING IN A NEW SHERIFF
I would like to take this opportunity to share with my friends and community—I will be running for Guilford County Sheriff in the 2022 Election. My decision to run doesn't come lightly. My decision is solely based on providing the citizens of Guilford County a choice to elect a Sheriff with no other motive in mind other than providing the most responsible leadership in the State with the professional service you should expect.
The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office needs “Responsible Leadership” to return. Phil Byrd’s promise is a professional law enforcement organization with men and women eager and ambitious to make a difference in the quality of lives of our citizens and to provide quality unbiased service to its communities.
Being a Leader is partly natural and partly developed through the experience and culmination of education. Having the commitment to learn from others to develop the skills of persuasion, patience, and to accept mentoring from leaders along your way.
A successful Leader must be able to lead in the right direction for the right purpose and have a plan to succeed. They also must have gained the trust, loyalty, and support of the people they are leading.
Responsible Leadership is what I bring to the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. I bring 30 years of prior service with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. I bring my dedication, passion, and desire to be the BEST. I am not a gamble. I have commanded the Personnel & Training Division, Internal Affairs Division, School Resource Officers Division, and the Field Operations Division. I have been a detention officer, patrol officer, narcotics officer, and a criminal investigator.
The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office needs “Responsible Leadership.” What I will promise is to bring back a professional law enforcement organization with men and women eager and ambitious to make a difference in the quality of lives of our citizens and to provide quality unbiased service to its communities. Restoring Morale will create a more productive Sheriff’s Office
I will treat our employees with respect, fairness, and work hard to gain their trust. I will work relentlessly for ways to make our employees feel appreciated, and their service valued in more than just words.
