Monroe County Sheriff candidate proposes ‘Coffee with the Sheriff’

Wes Revels would begin initiative if elected

If elected, Monroe County Sheriff candidate Wes Revels said he would start “Coffee with the Sheriff.”

Revels said it would give people an opportunity to interact with the sheriff in a relaxed, informal atmosphere twice a month.

“I discovered that there are a lot of questions and concerns from the residents regarding the policing activities of our county,” Revels said in a statement. “I found that the residents want to have a greater understanding of the Sheriff’s Department and are in need of a method or initiative that allows them the opportunity to discuss their concerns, learn about the operations of the Department and stay up-to-date on safety concerns in their areas.”

Revels is running against Monroe County Sheriff Sergeant Scott Perkins. The winner of the race will replace outgoing Sheriff Pete Quirin who is not running. Quirin has endorsed Wes Revels.
