Dear Desoto County Residents

It's time for change, a time for growth, new ideas, strong leadership, and a true and sincere commitment to the residents of Desoto County.

My name is Morrie Douglass and I would be honored to be your new Sheriff. A Sheriff for all the people.

You will find my sixteen plus years of law enforcement experience - the last five years with the Desoto County Sheriff Department as Jail Commander, Lietenant in the Patrol Division - along with my degree in Business Management, Advanced Training, and my commended and proven leadership style, has given me the skills and abilities which will create a Sheriff's Department structure of both deep community involvement and traditional law enforcement excellence.

I am highly motivated, goal oriented and my primary personal trait is integrity. It is my clear strength to lead by example and provide the mature, cooperative leadership needed to develop and draw out excellence in the officers, to protect and serve the residents of Desoto County.

History has taught us that long running administrations grow stale and become stagnant, with high turnovers and low morale. This is the case I submit to all of you. For that reason you have the unique opportunity to make the change and be a voice in the future of this county, by electing Morrie Douglass as your next Sheriff.

I will give you a progressive and participatory leadership style, successfully combining proactive methods of administration, problem solving and the ability to motivate officers and employees to exceed objectives for quality and quality of work while continuing to maintain the highest standards of law enforcement ethics and professionalism.

I am a 32° Mason, Shriner, past member of Optimist International, member of the Fraternal Order of Police and the Police Benevolent Association. I am commited to God, family and the protection of Desoto County residents, especially our youth.

God bless you for your support, your candidate for Sheriff, change and the future of Desoto County. Together we can make a difference.

Morrie L. Douglass
