Ohio Governor Mike DeWine along with two area state legislators met with Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth Wednesday.

State Representative Mark Johnson and State Senator Bob Peterson were also in attendance at the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office to discuss various matters involving law enforcement. Stanforth is also the President of the National Sheriff’s Association.

State Representative Johnson stated on his Facebook post- “Today I was honored to join up with Vernon Stanforth, the Fayette County Sheriff, who is also the President of the National Sheriff’s Association; Governor Mike DeWine and State Senator Bob Peterson to discuss the recently passed additional law enforcement funding initiatives in the state budget.  We had a long discussion of many ways we can further assist every Ohio law enforcement agency.  Sheriff Stanforth has a wealth of knowledge and offered up many ideas for us to follow up on.”

Senator Peterson echoed many of the same thoughts about their meeting in his social media- “I always appreciate the opportunity to support law enforcement! We had a great discussion today with Governor Mike DeWine, State Representative Mark Johnson and Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth to announce grant funding that was approved in the state budget for body cameras for law enforcement. I am also so very proud of Vernon as he currently serves a president of the National Sheriff’s Association.”
