Mike Angley is a retired Air Force Colonel and a 35-year Executive in Law Enforcement and U.S. Intelligence. He served over 25 years as a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI).

Why I’m running

I want to be YOUR Sheriff, elected by the people of El Paso County and responsible only to you. I served as the Chief Executive Officer of five law enforcement agencies — the functional equivalent of a city Chief of Police or a County Sheriff — each time with tremendous success. I’m ready to do it again a sixth time as your next Sheriff. No one else in this race can match my record of executive experience, leadership, transparency, and success.

My focus will be in three buckets that will include, among many areas:

  1. Public Trust (accountability, transparency, communication)
  2. Professional Development (career progression planning, merit-based promotions, dignity and respect for all, zero tolerance for harassment)
  3. Operations (revamp detentions business model, shore up patrol, improve investigations resolution)

Since I’ve never worked at the EPSO, I am a complete outsider. I am untainted by politics and choose to rise above it. This means I am not beholden to any special interests other than the citizens of this county. It also means I will care for the troops the way only a seasoned law enforcement executive, military commander, and veteran can.

  • No favoritism
  • No vendettas
  • No cronyism

I will unleash everyone’s leadership potential and make the citizens proud to call them our deputies.

‘Now more than ever we need an experienced, independent, and conservative professional from the outside, like me, to give civic control back to the law-abiding citizens we are supposed to be serving.’ 
– Colonel Mike Angley (Ret) U.S. Air force

What others are saying about Mike-

“I’ve known Mike Angley since the 1980s and give him my full endorsement for sheriff of El Paso County.  Mike is a seasoned law enforcement officer who led five field offices, far more than most Air Force Office of Special Investigation agents will in a typical career.  That’s testament to his proven leadership abilities.  The People of El Paso County won’t go wrong with Mike.  You cannot ask for a more honest and battle-tested leader.” David Crawford – Special Agent (Ret) Air Force Office of Special
Investigations

As a long time friend and professional colleague, I strongly endorse Mike for sheriff of El Paso County. The citizens there can be assured they will get an honest professional who will proudly represent them and the needs of the County. You can’t get a better man!Francis R. Dillon – Brigadier General
