Charlottesville Sheriff to Run for Second Term

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville's sheriff is running for a second term.  James Brown announced his bid for a second term Tuesday afternoon.   

He highlighted some of his staff's successes, including their move to hybrid vehicles and improvements to court security in the city.

Brown also touched upon the time and effort poured into the high-profile George Huguely trial last February.

"It was a lot of time that was put into it by the staff.  And we also had to plan what to do with the jurors, what to do with the judge, the family members that were coming in from both sides in addition to the defendant.  So it just required a lot of planning, a lot of coordination with other departments," said Brown.

Brown says he and his staff are working to get the sheriff's office accredited.
