Platform Row 1

I am JoAnn Walker, and I am running a SOLO campaign to be the next Alameda County Sheriff. A great deal of work needs to be done to reduce crime while also building public trust effectively. As a 26-year law enforcement veteran, my career has given me keen insight into strategies that work, versus strategies that look good on paper.  

The Alameda County Sheriffs Department is charged with a complex balance of responsibility interwoven into the fabric of our communities’ daily lives — ranging from patrol services, custody operations, courthouse security, running of the crime laboratory, and coroner’s bureau services.

It is not lost on me how momentous it is that I — a Black woman — have taken on the charge to fix and reform how law enforcement services are delivered in Alameda County. I am taking a big step of faith by entering this race that typically is uncontested. I have faith that voters in Alameda County are ready for a change in how our community is policed.

The fundamental basis of my platform is:

Accountability • Reform • Community

With introspection, hard work, and cooperation, we can make the needed changes at the Alameda County Sheriffs Department.
