Coming up in 2022 there will be an election for Christian County Sheriff. One of the candidates vying for the position is current Kincaid Police Chief DJ Mathon. One of the main issues guiding his campaign has to do with the drug use throughout the county, but he also wants to make sure there is police coverage in every corner of the county.
Those are not the only reason Chief Mathon wants to hold the office of sheriff. He also believes he can help make repairs to the prison within the current budget and he’d like to add K9 units to assist with the drug problem.
Mathon says he’s seen the budget for the jail and believes there is room for the repairs to be made.
The purpose of K9 units are help the officers in slowing the drug problem in the county, according to Mathon. He also says he’ll be raising the money for it so it won’t cost the county.
Mathon appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
