My family is my top priority and it is only with their support that this journey could happen. I am running for Sheriff of Cascade County for the betterment of my family and yours
I was born and raised in Bozeman, Montana where I graduated from high school and college.
My father, Bill Slaughter, was the Sheriff of Gallatin County, Montana for 10 years. My parents set an example of high moral character and ethics. During my father's tenure as Sheriff, Mom and Dad demonstrated how much they cared about the citizens of Gallatin County on countless occasions and they continue to be pillars in thier community today.
My wife Christie, a probation officer, and I have been married for over 13 years. We are Christians who keep our faith at the heart of our family.
Christie and I are proud to be raising our children, Jake (12) and Annie (10), to be responsible, compassionate, generous, and kind. For several years our entire family has been heavily involved in our church and we regularly spend time serving dinner at the Great Falls Rescue Mission and reading to senior citizens.
I am 41 years old and have over 18 years of experience as a law enforcement officer. I am certified as a law enforcement officer by the Montana Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Council. Along with several other certifications, I have the POST supervisor level certificate.
My career began right out of college as a civilian Deputy Coroner in Gallatin County, then as a Sheriff’s Deputy/Coroner in Stillwater County.
In 2002 I was fortunate to become a police officer with the Great Falls Police Department (GFPD). I am proud of many accomplishments while serving with the GFPD:
In 2011 I drafted and presented a proposal for the GFPD to join the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The proposal was accepted and, in 2012, I was appointed as the GFPD's only Detective assigned to the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. It is this work, protecting our most vulnerable community members, that makes me most proud.
P.O.S.T COUNCIL MEMBER
In 2012 Governor Bullock appointed me to the Montana Public Safety Officer Standards and Training (POST) Council, where I served for six years. POST is responsible for approving peace officer standards, conducting and approving training, providing for the certification and re-certification of public safety officers, and the suspension or revocation of certification of public safety officers. https://dojmt.gov/post/
MONTANA ICAC MEMBER
As a member of the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force I have led several operations with teams of investigators from multiple local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, civilian support staff members, and trusted community members.
I have been recognized as a leader in the field by receiving GFPD commendations for rescuing a child from sex trafficking and, during the same year, for an amber alert case, where my team and I rescued two children who had been abducted.
I was invited to present at the National ICAC conference, held at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, WA.
MPPA LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE
For eight years I served on the Montana Police Protective Association's (MPPA) Legislative Affairs Committee. The MPPA's Legislative Chairman, assisted by the Legislative Committeemen, monitor all applicable bills as they pass through the process, and testify as to the position of Montana Law Enforcement Officers. It was an honor to help craft laws that better protect Montana's citizens and peace officers. http://www.mppaonline.org
