To the Editor:

In the spring of 2013, I graduated the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and began my law enforcement career as a Deputy with the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office. Prior to departing for other law enforcement ventures, I had the opportunity to meet many great people. Justin Brown was one.

Justin was a Corporal working day shift, covering the many towns of central Oxford County at the time. Justin was the first and most influential supervisor I’ve had throughout my law enforcement career.

Whether on the same shift or not, Justin was always there to guide me through tough times, challenging situations, and was never afraid to provide positive, and when appropriate, critical feedback. Justin always went the extra mile when reviewing reports and aiding in calls, and was always willing to answer his phone day and night when I needed advice. Justin was the calm voice of reason through the many storms I faced during my time on patrol. Over the years, Justin proved to be not only a co-worker but a friend and mentor I respect immensely.

In 2016 Justin was promoted to Lieutenant in the Criminal Investigation division, where he has spent much of his time investigating sex offenses and performing administrative duties to include reviewing reports. Justin’s dedication to finding the truth, work ethic and attention to detail have proven to be strong attributes as he has progressed through his law enforcement career.

After 22 years of dedicated service to Oxford County, Justin has decided to take the next step in his career and run for Oxford County Sheriff. Justin’s work ethic, willingness to face tough challenges, knowledge and experience serving as a Deputy and leadership, combined with his desire to improve the inner and outer workings of the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, make him an excellent candidate for the job.

I hope you’ll all join me in improving Oxford County and supporting Justin Brown in the upcoming Nov. 8 election.
