Captain Matt Haley hosts campaign meet and greet

Harrison County Sheriff’s Department Captain Matt Haley has officially announced his candidacy for sheriff for 2023.

He and his team held a campaign meet and greet at Chandeleur Brewing to let citizens learn about his career and his intentions for running.

Captain Haley has served as a member of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department for more than 25 years.

He began his career as a correctional officer and has since served every division throughout the agency.

Captain Haley says one of his key traits is his experience within the department and his knowledge to make the right decisions for the department moving forward.

“I started with the sheriff’s department when I was 23 years old under Sheriff Joe Price, so that’s four sheriffs that I’ve worked under,” said Captain Haley. “You know, I’ve seen what worked and I’ve seen what didn’t work, so I think that’s going to give me a leg up.”

Captain Haley is currently serving as an administrative caption over three divisions within the agency.
