A familiar face has thrown a hat in the ring to run for Christian County Sheriff as retired Hopkinsville Police Department Detective Chuck Inman made it official at an announcement Friday night.
Speaking with a large crowd at Duke’s Bar and Grill, the Republican says that if elected, he would change nearly everything with the current sheriff’s department.
He says it’s time for a change and he intends to have deputies be more proactive and educate when possible before taking disciplinary action. Inman says he has the experience to be Sheriff that no one else in the race has and he wants to truly improve the department.
Inman spent eight years in the armed forces, then 21 years with the Hopkinsville Police Department as a detective before going to Fortera Credit Unit as a Risk Manager. He says he intends to keep attending trainings and forums to be as up-to-date and knowledgeable about the issues facing the community as possible.
Inman made three unsuccessful runs against Sheriff Livy Leavell previously.
Inman will face HPD Lt. Tyler DeArmond in the Republican Primary. Julius Catlett Sr., Kahle Morris Jr., Lt. Lyn Moe and Sgt. James Dragoo have all filed to seek the position as Democrats. **
