GRAND FORKS — Grand Forks County Sheriff Andy Schneider has announced his intention to seek reelection.

Schneider made his reelection campaign announcement in a letter sent to the Herald and addressed to county residents, Tuesday morning, March 29. The election will be held in the fall.

Schneider has been sheriff of Grand Forks County since 2018. In his announcement, he said that he has worked to increase the visibility of GFSO deputies throughout the county, and that his focus will be on providing security for the county and “a positive law-enforcement” influence on residents.

“I am proud to be your sheriff and would be honored to continue to serve this county for the next four years,” Schneider wrote.

According to the announcement, Schneider said he has established “adopt a city” and “adopt a fire station” programs in the county. Through that program, deputies attend local meetings and visit schools, in effort to build relationships with rural stakeholders.

Schneider said his office has endured multiple difficulties over the last three years, including “three officer-involved shootings involving (six) deputies in three years, multiple floods, a worldwide pandemic, anti-law enforcement protests and currently times where law and order is continuously shown less respect.”

“Through all the conflict, I am thankful that I have been the leader for your Sheriff’s Office to navigate these uncharted territories,” Schneider wrote.
