Hennepin Sheriff Dave Hutchinson makes positive impression in first months on job


Glen Stubbe – Star Tribune

Law enforcement leaders say that six months into the job, Sheriff Dave Hutchinson is asking the right questions.

When dozens of worshipers were killed at a mosque in New Zealand several months ago, Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson visited a local mosque without any media in tow. It was the right thing to do, he said.

In his upset victory last November over longtime Sheriff Rich Stanek, Hutchinson portrayed himself as a "man of the people." During the first six months in office, he let employees wear more facial hair and exposed tattoos, advocated for driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants and began treating jail inmates with opioid disorders.
