Dean wins Ottawa County Sheriff seat

OTTAWA COUNTY, Okla. – David Dean wins the election for Ottawa County Sheriff.

According to unofficial results, Dean secured 59.2 percent of the vote, defeating current sheriff Jeremy Floyd.

Dean was with the Miami Police Department for more than 20 years before retiring. He has also served in the Marines for six years.

He spoke with us shortly after the results came in on Tuesday night.

“I’m feeling good. I want to thank everybody that supported me, that’s backed me. This has been a long few months, and it’s been stressful. And I’m ready to get to work,” says Dean.

He says his first goals are to get more deputies on the streets and to work on securing the county jail.

“These citizens in this county need to have bodies, as far as deputies, in the field. We do not have the best laws in this state as far as theft and drugs, and because of those laws, our thefts are through the roof. And we need some bodies out there to try to help these citizens,” says Dean. “My second goal, which is just as important, is that jail. We’ve got to get that jail secure. That should be the most secure place in this county, and right now it seems like we’re having a problem with that. I want to fix that because everybody should feel safe in this county. I love this county, I love this country, and I’m gonna do whatever I can to fix it.”

Sheriff Jeremy Floyd also sent us his reaction to the results.

“The people have spoken and I respect their decision as a whole. Having the choice is what makes our country the greatest place on earth. I congratulate and wish David Dean the best of luck.”

I first want to say to all my family, friends, colleagues, and supporters that I’m very thankful from the bottom of my…
