One of the Democratic candidates for Christian County Sheriff, Hopkinsville Police Officer Julius Catlett Sr., met with the public at a meet and greet event Thursday evening.
Catlett, who has served at HPD since 1992, is an army veteran and an ordained minister, says it is his goal to be “everybody’s sheriff”. He cites his many years of experience and skills as a people person as a couple of the reasons he should be the next Sheriff of Christian County.
He says he wants his deputies, if elected, to be approachable and understanding to the public.
Catlett says he wouldn’t change much at the sheriff’s office, but he would work to reignite the trust of the community.
Catlett spoke with many at the event about his stances and answered any questions or concerns they had. Catlett will face Lt. Lyn Moe, Sgt. James Dragoo, Kahle Morris Jr. and Jerry Pepper in the May primary election. **
