MEET WICK PICKARD
NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
As a life long resident of Clay County I have devoted my life to law enforcement. Over 45 years of experience is what I bring to the table to earn your vote and manage the sheriff's office.
I served in the air force as a military police officer beginning in 1963. I completed 15+ years of service.
I began my career as a police officer for the Seward Nebraska Police Department in 1976. In 1977 I was hired by the Gladstone Department of Public Safety as a Public Safety Officer. Until just a few years ago all Gladstone Public Safety Officers where police officers, fire fighters and EMT's or paramedics. I retired with 35 years of service to the Northland.
In 2008 I was asked to become a part of the Clay County Sheriff's Department Administration. I served as a Lieutenant in the Fugitive Apprehension Unit for 4 years.
I have also served a number of years in the private sector in hospital security. I am currently a Reserve Police Officer with a local Clay County municipality.
My father served 20 years with the Gladstone Department of Public Safety and retired as a Major. My son recently retired from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department where he was assigned as a Pilot in the Helicopter Unit. A law enforcement family is my life.
I have been married for 45 years with three children, seven grand children and one great grandson. I still call Gladstone my home.
I attend church at the Northland Cathedral and volunteer on the security team. I am the former president of the Northland Optimist Club and a former Affiliate Faculty member of the American Heart Association.
I bring decades of experience, contacts and resources to the table in order to be the next leader of your Sheriff's Office. Pick me for your next Sheriff. I appreciate your support.
