Sheriff Candidate: Lehi Lacy
Lehi Lacy for San Juan County Sheriff - Breaking Barriers to Build the Future
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share a little bit about myself and why I’m running for San Juan County Sheriff in 2022.
I come from a family of public servants and was fortunate to grow up in the local law enforcement community. I was inspired by so many great leaders throughout my childhood. It was never a question that I would one day follow in their footsteps and dedicate my life to serving and protecting the people of San Juan County. My wife Ashley and our four children as well as extended family members live in the Blanding area and have worked and served in many areas of the county.
I started working for the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office in July of 2005 as a Correction Officer, moving to Patrol in 2008. In 2014 I joined the Blanding City Police Department. Since 2019 I have been working for the Utah Department of Corrections as a Case Manager.
In my 17 years of continuous law enforcement service, with a variety of positions and leadership roles, I have been well prepared for the position of Sheriff.
One of the things that sets me apart is the fact that I spent my patrol days out in our communities. I know the issues San Juan County is facing because I’ve seen them. I feel that being in tune with our community is critical for whoever is elected Sheriff.
I’ve always felt that effective leaders need more than just experience — they must be able to connect with, empathize with, motivate, and inspire people to want to do and achieve greater things.
Should I have the honor of being elected Sheriff, I’ll work very hard to serve both my colleagues and the people of San Juan County in this manner.
As the pressures and demands on law enforcement evolve, I will continually strive to do more to support the citizens in all our communities of San Juan County.
I look forward to bringing new energy and ideas to the table. Should I have the honor of being elected, I will ensure that taxpayer dollars are stewarded most effectively so that we can make needed progress while focusing on four critical areas that will make San Juan County a safer community for all.
