Napa Valley is my Home.
I was raised in this community and have devoted my life to keeping it safe.
For over 22 years of my 27-year career, I have served in the Napa County Sheriff’s Office. Starting as a deputy, I worked my way up to Undersheriff, the second highest rank in the department. I worked tirelessly each and every day, and oversaw the day-to-day operations of the department and made sure Napa County residents feel safe and secure.
Unfortunately, crime is on the rise in California. It is more important now than ever that we have steady, competent leadership in our law enforcement agencies. Strong, ethical leaders that can do the critical job of protecting our families, businesses, and neighborhoods.
I am so appreciative of the supportive relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and the community. I strongly believe that the strength of our community comes from our ability to draw together in difficult times, and I am committed to creating an even better relationship as we move forward together. As guardians of this community, we can’t do our job and keep families safe without trust from the people we are sworn to serve. That trust is crucial. That is why as Sheriff, I will put aside the rhetoric and do the hard work of building trust and engaging with all members of the community.
I am running for Sheriff because I know that we can do better as a county. With your support, we can ensure that everyone in our community is able to safely enjoy the blessings that life in our beautiful region has to offer.
I look forward to meeting you and discussing the future of Napa County law enforcement in the coming months.
"Undersheriff Crawford’s dedication to Napa County and honorable law enforcement is 27 years in the making. When choosing law enforcement leaders, it has never been more critical to prioritize sound decision- making, ethical leadership and a sensitivity to the unique time in history policing is facing. Crawford leads with character and compassion; Napa County deserves nothing less."
"Jon has an untarnished record of working in a collaborative way with community leaders to keep our region safe. Napa County families would be well served with Jon Crawford as Sheriff."
