VANDERBURGH CO., Ind (WEHT) Chief Deputy Noah Robinson formally announced Wednesday he’s running for Vanderburgh County Sheriff in 2022.

A drive-in style rally was held Wednesday night at the 4H center. Robinson began his career in law enforcement with Owensboro Police in 1999 before joining the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office in 2001.

Robinson said he believes there’s more than one way to solve a problem.

“We can pursue drug dealers peddling poison, like opioids, to our children and prevent the next generation of addiction, while also showing compassion to the addict, and providing for intensive treatment to support their recovery,” he said.

Current sheriff Dave Wedding is prohibited by law from seeking a third consecutive term.
