VOTE Anthony Pellicano, Running for Sumter County Sheriff

Experience that Counts

Public safety has always been the focus of Anthony’s career, from the Army to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to the Department of Justice (DOJ). He will use his experience gathering the intelligence needed to prosecute criminal organizations here and abroad, taking dangerous criminals and drugs off the streets, to serve Sumter County as Sheriff.

“Crime is up everywhere. We will do our best to slow that down.”

Throughout his 28-year career in law enforcement, Anthony’s successful leadership earned him promotions and awards, culminating in several Director’s awards for his role in one of the largest arrests and drug cases in the history of the DOJ. He will bring that successful leadership to the Sumter County Sheriff’s office.

Improving Public Safety

To Anthony, improving public safety in Sumter County means: 

• proactive policing

• additional patrols

• increased training for deputies 

• addressing school safety

• more emphasis on Seniors vs. Crime

Anthony sees the need for additional Sumter County Sheriff Annex buildings to meet the demands of safety and security in the county along with a focus on hiring, retention and accountability.

“We need people to come here to work as deputies because they see we’re doing a good job and they want to be part of that.”

Giving Back to the Community

Anthony believes in the importance of building strong relationships between law enforcement and the community. “I will also be donating a portion of my salary, if elected, to charities and groups in the Sumter County community every year,” Anthony explains. 

“I believe giving back is key to the success of the Sumter County residents and community as a whole.”
