My name is Dave Hutchinson, and I am running for Sheriff of Hennepin County. Hennepin County is where I live and work. I have spent most of my 15-year career as police officer working in Hennepin County, and I am a homeowner in Bloomington.

My experience as both a police officer and a police supervisor has driven me to run for Sheriff. I have spent my career working in the inner city; some of the poorest and most forgotten neighborhoods of Hennepin County. I am very fortunate that the same experience has allowed me to work with the most diverse neighborhoods in Hennepin County, from recent immigrants and refugees to long-established families of Minneapolis. I work with everybody, and that has shown me that I need to run for Sheriff.

Why? Well, the current Sheriff has been in office for over 12 years. He knows nothing other than a very outdated model of policing, based on his experience being a Minneapolis cop in the 90’s. Transparency? Responsiveness to community needs? Flexibility? No- that’s not him. Those are some of my core values, and they are lacking in the current administration. I am running because Hennepin County needs a Sheriff that will respond to everybody, all neighbors, no matter where they come from or what they look like.
