Clint Bradberry Announces Candidacy for Desha County Sheriff

Veteran and long-time law enforcement officer Clint Bradberry has announced he will
seek the office of Desha County Sheriff.
Bradberry currently serves as Criminal Investigator for Desha County Sheriff Larry Allen
who has announced he will retire at the end of this year. Bradberry is also a wartime
veteran of the U.S. Navy and served in both Operations Enduring Freedom and Iragi
“My military career led me all over the world and I believe it prepared me to come here
and serve Desha County citizens.” said Bradberry. “As a law enforcement officer, I
have seen the best and worst our community has to offer. I’ve been the patrolman
working an accident in the rain, the investigator who delivered the death notification to
the grieving mother, and the Assistant Chief at McGhee who made a touch
administrative decision. I have also been the Desha County Investigator who rode the
gravel trying to find stolen farm equipment. I believe I am the only candidate with this
well-rounded ability.”
Bradberry says he is dedicated to the betterment of the community and has organized
events like softball tournaments and Christmas shopping programs for families in need.
“I’ve seen how caring and generous our citizens are and how when there is a natural
disaster or loss, we Desha County folks put aside our differences and work together.”
said Bradberry. “I believe it’s important we do the right thing, but I also believe it’s not
just important when the cameras are rolling or for social media attention. As your
Sheriff, I’ll do the right thing even when no one is looking because I am one of you.”
“As an investigator, I was assigned to the Tenth Judicial District Drug Task Force, where
I saw the impact drugs had on families,” Bradberry said. “Rich and poor, black and
white, we all know someone who’s been affected. The hurt, loss and pain was the
same regardless of background. I believe we must continue this fight, but we must
also realize that drug addicts need help and so do their families. Prison won’t fix the
addicted. Only God and the proper treatment will. But for drug dealers who poison our
community, cause violence, and destroy families, I will do my best to eradicate them.”
Bradberry, a Dewitt native who makes his home in McGhee, is a graduate of the
Arkansas Law Enforcement Academy, numerous specialized Leadership and
Investigative Schools, and studied at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
“I will not have the financial or social resources to waltz into the courthouse as Sheriff
on January 1, 2023,” said Bradberry. “I will need every ounce of help I can get from
you, the voters. I want and need your support. Please help me maintain the progress
Sheriff Larry Allen and I have made, and feel free to call me if I can expound further on
my views. May God bless each of you and your families.”
