 Sheriff Bill Elder 

"I've been asked a number of times in the past month or so who I support as the next Sheriff of El Paso County and I want to make it clear that I fully support and endorse Joe Roybal in his effort to become the 29th Sheriff.

 

Joe has over 25 years of service with EPSO currently serves as my Bureau Chief of the Administrations Bureau and is responsible for a myriad of things to include management of our nearly $90 million dollar budget as well as the hiring of all personnel.

 

He was the project manager for a nearly $15 million dollar jail upgrade in 2020, he has run the jail operations division, is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, he has earned and is very much respected by everyone in this agency.

 

Please join me in supporting Joe Roybal in his efforts to become elected in the 2022 election."

 

- Sheriff Bill Elder

 

"Joe, it's been a pleasure to watch you lead and demonstrate the high value you place on the members of the Office.

Your fair, consistent, passionate, yet objective approach to key issues is appreciated.

I've enjoyed listening to your great ideas and vision for the future which will have an impact on the community and all of us who call EPSO our second home."

- Chief Jeff Kramer

"I had a great conversation with Joe Roybal, running for El Paso County Sheriff.  I really like that he is a native and has a very clear understanding of our entire community. 

El Paso County is 2100 square miles and he is very knowledgeable and has a great commitment to serve every area, neighborhood and citizen."

- Mike MacGuire, Owner Platinum Group

 Chance Hill 

"It was great to attend the Friends of NRA banquet this past weekend and meet up with fellow activists—and Joe and Melissa Roybal—who similarly recognize the need to safeguard our fundamental civil rights.


I fully endorse Joe Roybal for Sheriff because he understands that the Second Amendment is paramount.


Ultimately, you can’t have the First without the Second!"

- Chance Hill, CU Regent 5th Congressional District

 Dave Schultheis 

“I am proud to endorse Joe Roybal for El Paso County Sheriff. My lengthy discussion with him conveyed a humble, yet strong, principled character that will be unwavering in administration of the Sheriff’s office and that will provide the necessary protection of its citizens, including protection against illegal intrusion by the federal government on our God-given freedoms.”

 

Dave Schultheis, Fmr. Colorado State Senator,

I had the pleasure of working for Joe Roybal in 2016 while assigned to the Metro Vice, Narcotics and Intelligence Division.  At the time, Joe Roybal was a Lieutenant with the Sheriff’s Office, and I was a Colorado Springs Police Detective assigned to the metro division.  Joe Roybal came to the unit after having been assigned to the jail and administration.  I was impressed with his eagerness to learn about all the unique facets of working in an undercover narcotics assignment.  Read More...
