Lt. Jeffrey L. Stritesky of Daleville announced his Republican candidacy for the office of Botetourt County Sheriff yesterday.
“I am running for Sheriff of Botetourt County because I want to ensure that our law enforcement continues to safeguard and improve the quality of life that Botetourt County residents have come to know and cherish,” Stritesky said.
A married father of two, Stritesky has called Botetourt County home for over 29 years. He began his career with the US Army in 1984 as a military police officer and has now amassed over 34 years of experience in law enforcement. For the past 23 years, he has been employed by the Botetourt County Sheriff’s Office, where he serves as lieutenant in the Community Services Division. Stritesky has been a part of the Botetourt County Sheriff’s Office Command Staff for over a decade.
He is known by many in the community, previously serving as a school resource officer at Lord Botetourt High School. His campaign will focus on community, integrity and experience.
“As I campaign across the county, I look forward to hearing from voters regarding their thoughts on safety and law enforcement,” Stritesky said. “One of my goals is to involve the community, not only during the campaign, but as an integral part of the Sheriff’s Office in the future. I commit to doing this through ongoing communication, community involvement and local partnerships. I am excited to begin this journey!”
