For some strange reason the Chief of Police in Hemet is also running for Sheriff.
Everyone in Riverside County knows Hemet is a war zone with a spiraling crime rate, even worse than the crime rate of Riverside County as as whole.
It is reputed and well-known that Hemet Dave Brown and Stan Sniff hate each other. Perhaps that is all it took.
While Brown has a few endorsements, he has a paltry $67K in the bank which was drawfed quintupled by the recent addition of $300k to Chad Bianco’s Sheriff Campaign. Even the feckless Sheriff has 6 times the money available than does Hemet Dave.
Hemet Dave Brown wants to become the next sheriff, the chief law enforcement officer in Riverside county. Cheif Hemet Dave Brown has based his campaign on his “experience” serving as the police chief in Hemet for the last six and a half years. Ouch.
Hemet Dave is running on his experience, but is ignoring the results he achieved while he was in charge of public safety in Hemet.
According to the most recent figures from the Department of Justice, crime – especially violent crime – in Hemet increased dramatically between 2011, when Hemet Dave became police chief and 2016, the most recent full year of available crime stats.
Here are the results of Hemet Dave’s Failed Leadership in Hemet:
* 37% Up = robberies
* 70% Up = total violent crimes
* 83% Up = increase of aggravated assaults
* 272% Up = rapes / forcible rapes
The last thing we need is Hemet Dave leading our law enforcement and public safety services throughout Riverside County, which is about the size of New Jersey with millions of residents.
Hemet Dave failed miserably at his job of police chief for a city of 60,000+ residents. Can you imagine how crime-infested Riverside County would become with Hemet Dave in Charge?
By nearly all accounts, Hemet Dave is a nice guy. However, being nice has never protected the residents of Hemet and will not protect the residents of Riverside County.
