Umlauf is a proven leader

To the editor:

I am a retired deputy sheriff and a former special agent assigned to the West Central Minnesota Narcotics Task Force. During my time with the task force, I worked with Scot Umlauf investigating multiple criminal cases that resulted in both state and federal convictions of illegal narcotic traffickers.

I have seen, first hand, the hard work and dedication Scot put into his duties as special agent in charge and law enforcement in general.

As commander, Scot had the additional responsibilities of managing special agents across multiple counties and jurisdictions, making sure all case reports and evidence were documented, writing grants for continued funding of the task force, managing a budget, and the list goes on.

I know through working with Scot that he is a leader with integrity, commitment and a civil-minded duty to this community. Scot believes in planning, not just for today, but for the future needs of both the infrastructure of the sheriff’s office and with the ever-changing trends involving criminal activity.

That is how I saw him manage, that is how I saw him work and that is why I feel confident in writing this letter of support.
