WINNEBAGO COUNTY, IL (WIFR) - Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana launches his latest bid to keep the seat he’s held since 2014.

Caruana was first elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2018. His background includes eight years as a deputy sheriff and more than two decades overseeing security for UPS in Illinois.

Caruana says he’s proud to serve the people of Winnebago County and the relationships he’s built with county board members and officials. He feels communication is key to keeping everyone safe.

“We are doing great as a team,” Caruana said. “Right now, I don’t want to turn my back on the department. We’re moving in the right direction, I’ve got a lot of great command staff.”
