"We live in extraordinarily dangerous times, where even places like Morris County can become a target for violent crime and acts of terrorism. I am confident that my 33-plus years of law enforcement and security experience will bring a modern, professional and fiscally responsible approach to the Morris County Sheriff's Office.” – Jim Gannon
