News From The Campaign

Date: FRIDAY APRIL 6, 2018

 Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch has announced his intention to run for re-election for the Office of Cass County Sheriff.  Sheriff Burch states it has been an honor to serve the citizens of Cass County and looks forward to the challenges of ever changing law enforcement. Burch was first elected Sheriff in 2010 and has served with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office for 32 years.

Under Sheriff Burch’s leadership, the Sheriff’s Office has responded to an increase in demands in nearly every division of the Sheriff’s Office, including Calls for Service, increased Detention Center bookings and housing needs. Through cross-training, re assignments and technology, the Sheriff’s Office has lowered its response time to calls for service and has worked aggressively on crime clearance rates.   Burch notes the reassignment of officers to drug investigations and an Associated Membership in the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force has had a positive impact on our communities. 

Sheriff Burch has also established many successful new initiatives during his past terms as Sheriff including Court security enhancements, communication enhancements, cross-training of staff for a more effective work force, licensed staff in Detention Center, Emergency Management and STS Crew Leader capacities, Community Outreach Days, Officers in Schools, Sheriff’s Corner and Teen CERT Programs.  Additional programs and partnerships with community groups and organizations continue to be an ongoing priority of the Sheriff’s Office. Through increased concepts in community policing initiatives and department accessibility throughout the county, the success of these many initiatives in the Sheriff’s Office can be achieved because of the dedicated staff who deliver these services. 

Sheriff Burch’s capacity to continue to serve efficiently is enhanced by his 26 years of proven budgetary and supervisory experience within the Office. Burch intends to maintain the department’s reputation for progressive law enforcement and adapt departmental goals and priorities to meet the challenging and demanding needs of Cass County law enforcement. Burch will continue to provide fiscally responsible budgeting, experience-based planning and an on-going integration of technology with daily operations to provide fair and equal law enforcement services to the citizens and visitors of Cass County.

Tom is a lifelong resident of Cass County and resides in Remer with his wife, Gina. Their three adult daughters are college graduates and are employed in professional capacities in the area.  To learn more about Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch and his campaign, visit his election website at
