I met Pat when he joined the aviation section at Citrus County Sheriff's Office. We flew as a pilot/ observer, for 6-7 years protecting the county from the air. I came to know Pat very well during these years, and knew him to be a dedicated Law Enforcement officer. He was always striving to learn and improve his knowledge of law enforcement aviation. After my retirement from the Citrus County Sheriff's Office pat and I worked together at FWC. Pat then went on to have several positions in corporate America, always keeping his foot in law enforcement. I believe that he is THE RIGHT MAN AT THE RIGHT TIME for the Sheriff of Citrus County.

I have known Pat Crippen for around 4 years now. Whenever he told me he was pondering running for Sheriff I knew it would only be a matter of time before he pursued his dream. His dream of being able to contribute back to the community who helped mold his character and moral values growing up. Pat Crippen has a go-getter attitude that will not rest until a mission is accomplished. An attitude such as this is exactly what Citrus County needs. Citrus County needs someone who is not going to rest or give up at a task or issue at hand. As a Citrus County born and bred citizen I am honored to know a man who has the right intentions and wants to preserve the quality of life of the citizens of Citrus County. Without reservation I can say with certainty Pat Crippen is the man for the job and exactly what Citrus County needs.

This man will go out of his way for people and animals. I've only known him for less than a year but he has had my back on numerous occasions and has been very helpful with my fiance and our unborn baby boy.

He is a great boss who is extremely hard working and devoted.
