Mr. Speaker—

I rise in recognition of a man whose service to his community has resulted in greater safety, security, and justice in Polk County.

Sheriff Grady Judd, a stalwart of law enforcement in the 15th District, has been sworn in to the role of President of the Major County Sheriffs' Association of America, a position to which he will bring his knowledge, his skill, and his integrity to advocate for safer communities across our great nation.

For centuries, the Anglo-American sheriff system has produced officers who secure the peace and prosperity of the land, and even two American Presidents, Grover Cleveland and Teddy Roosevelt, served in such a capacity.

Sheriff Judd has long been an advocate for the rule of law, and we will all benefit as he rises to this position to fight to uphold this noble tradition of keeping the peace.

My deepest congratulations to Sheriff Judd and his family, and to the Major County Sheriffs' Association who do such important work to keep us all safe.
