Attorney General Sean D. Reyes Offers Support to Utah Sheriffs in Statewide Sheriffs’ Address

SALT LAKE CITY Sept. 26 2014 — Attorney General Sean Reyes met with statewide sheriffs this week at the annual Utah Sheriffs’ Association Conference in St. George. In his first annual address as attorney general, AG Reyes pledged his full support for each county’s law enforcement efforts by stating, “I want to strongly restate something I said to the police chiefs. Over the years this office has taken on a name that I do not claim. Let me be clear, I am not The Top Cop.” Although General Reyes holds the highest elected law enforcement office in the state, he continued by saying, “Each of you, as sheriff of your county, have the honor and responsibility to meet the demands of your particular citizenship.  You and the chiefs in attendance today are the Top Cops. The Utah Attorney General has many mandates and, among those, it my privilege to assist you in your daily obligations.”

General Reyes continued by saying, “Our office is here to serve you. If we can be an objective set of eyes, or as a resource enhancer, then we are doing our jobs. If we can respond when you request our help, then we are fulfilling our obligations to you and to the citizens of Utah. If we can bring prosecutorial or investigative enhancement to any of your cases, then we are accomplishing our goals. You have my commitment as the Utah Attorney General to serve you and your constituents to make our communities safe.”
