Russo Wins Law Enforcement Endorsement In Bid For County Sheriff

The Middlesex-Somerset County Police Benevolent Association (P.B.A.) Conference has endorsed Democratic candidate Darrin Russo in his bid for Somerset County Sheriff.

“From his commitment to enhancing cyber security and building community relationships, to his plan to forge critical partnerships with the local police departments, Darrin Russo’s vision for law enforcement will better protect residents,” John Granahan, co-chair of the Middlesex-Somerset PBA, said in a press release about the endorsement. “It certainly doesn’t hurt that Darrin’s exemplary record in law enforcement – especially his time as the head of the major crimes unit – and his many years supervising plain clothes units will help fight crime and better serve all the residents in the county.”

Russo served in the Franklin Township police department for more than 30 years. During his time as head of the major crimes unit, Franklin experienced a decrease in violent crime. The endorsement emphasizes the support Darrin has from the 45 local chapters throughout Middlesex and Somerset PBA.

“I am honored by the support I am receiving from my fellow officers,” Russo said in the release.  “For years, I worked hard to protect the residents of Franklin Township.  I will bring the same drive and determination to protect residents throughout all of Somerset County. With this key support, I look forward to bringing new initiatives and needed change to the county Sheriff’s department.”
