Caldwell County Sheriff Alan Jones announced on Thursday that he’ll seek reelection.
Jones started his career at the Lenoir Police Department after graduating from Appalachian State University with a criminal justice degree.
While at Lenoir Police Department, Jones was a patrol officer, detective and patrol supervisor. He held the rank of lieutenant when he left the department.
Jones joined the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office as chief deputy for Sheriff Gary Clark.
Jones was appointed sheriff by the Caldwell County Board of Commissioners when Clark died and was elected sheriff in 2010.
“I feel my 26 years in law enforcement makes me the best candidate for the job of sheriff,” Jones said a statement announcing his reelection bid. “I have the knowledge, education, and experience to continue to lead the Sheriff’s Office for the good of the citizens of Caldwell County.”
