Vote November 5, For Sheriff


Chan Bryant has over 20 years of Law Enforcement Experience with years of training and application in and around Albemarle County. Experience matters in the race for Albemarle Sheriff! Along with her work with the Arbor Board for human trafficking, Alzheimer Association, Blueprint for Safety to help victims of Domestic Violence and the Boy Scouts of America local executive board, Chan Bryant has the Experience and Qualifications needed for Albemarle County.

EXPERIENCED, PROVEN LEADERSHIP - Experience is what matters in this election primary for Sheriff. With over 20 years of local law enforcement experience, 13 years of experience in the Albemarle County Sheriff's Office and the last 4 years as Chief Deputy doing the job daily, this is about a proven leader that is the only certified Law Enforcement Officer running in the 2019 election that has the ability, knowledge, and experience to lead on day one!

As Chief Deputy of the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office my duties are wide range from doing county and comp board budgets, commander of the 100 person Search and Rescue division and the 60 member volunteer Reserve Deputy programs, Project Lifesaver, and work as acting Sheriff when Sheriff Harding is not in the office.

Proven leadership is why I received the 2017 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year from the Elks Lodge and the 2018 and Deputy of the Year from the Albemarle County Sheriff's Office as voted on by the deputies and staff of the Sheriff's Office
