Former Police Chief Launches Laramie County Sheriff’s Campaign
Former Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak officially launched his campaign for the Laramie County Sheriff on Saturday afternoon in Cheyenne. Kozak was the head of the CPD from 2010 to 2020.
He was not reappointed as leader by incoming mayor Patrick Collins when Collins took office in January. Kozak also issued an “action plan” if elected, focusing on three goals.
You can read this plan here. According to an article posted on his campaign website:
“Many law enforcement agencies fail because their leaders forget their mission and put politics before public safety.
Therefore, we will create a culture that puts the people of Laramie County and our first responders ahead of politics.
Before announcing his campaign for the sheriff, Brian took the time to learn about the issues most important to the community and the employees of the sheriff’s office. “
Kozak joins a group of Republican candidates for Laramie County Sheriff that also includes Sheriff’s Office Captain Don Hollingshead, Patrick Long and James Barth.
The primary election is still almost a year away in August 2022. Current Sheriff Danny Glick is retiring at the end of his term, which ends next year. You can see Kozak’s campaign launch speech below:
