On Wednesday, Austin Garrett announced the endorsement of the IBOP Local #673.
The endorsement comes on the heels of Garrett’s first financial disclosure, and just over two weeks from the filing deadline to run for office in this cycle.
In part, the Endorsement Letter from the IBPO Local #673 states:
“The International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local #673, would like to proudly announce their endorsement of Austin Garrett for Hamilton County Sheriff.”
“Since Starting in his leadership role in the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Garrett has led the implementation of several programs within the Hamilton County Sheriff Office to include the Body Worn Camera deployment, educational programs within the jail, partnerships that address mental health in the community. And the complex transition of the Hamilton County Jail.”
After receiving the endorsement letter from the IBPO, Garrett stated: “Receiving the endorsement and support of the IBPO, which is comprised of men and women who protect this community every day, is incredibly humbling. It has been a privilege to serve alongside them as chief deputy, and I look forward to the honor of serving them and the community as their sheriff.”
