Sheriff Mark Bowen announces endorsement for Dennis Quakenbush


Hamilton County Sheriff candidate Captain Dennis Quakenbush has received the endorsement of current Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen.

“When crime and violence are allowed to threaten our community, our families are left powerless. Like you, I understand the safety and security of our families and the community is essential to our peace of mind,” said Sheriff Mark Bowen. “Captain Dennis Quakenbush is aware of the issues that are affecting not only the agency but the community as a whole, and he stands committed to providing effective, efficient and professional leadership to both. He genuinely cares about people and keeping them safe, and it shows. He has my full support.”

Sheriff Bowen joined the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department as a Deputy in 1991. He has spent 27 years with the Department, including time as Chief Deputy under Sheriff Doug Carter, before being elected Sheriff in 2011 and reelected in 2015.

“Through a lifetime of public safety leadership, Mark Bowen helped build the type of professional law enforcement organization for which everyone in Hamilton County can be proud and I am deeply honored to receive his support,” said Quakenbush. “Our next sheriff needs to have the experience and knowledge to protect our community. They also need to be fiscally responsible and be willing to work with local leaders and experts to tackle the issues we are facing. This is the type of diverse experience I have and will bring to the community as Sheriff.”

“Having served alongside him for the last 16 years, Captain Quakenbush is the clear choice to lead and expand the protection and safety we cherish in Hamilton County,” concluded Bowen.

  1. It should be noted that Sheriff Bowen is also part of the FOP and they voted, after a debate on the issues with all candidates, to endorse Bill Clifford for Sheriff. After the election, the Sheriff will be placed in a position determined by the newly elected sheriff. I hope the public considers he may have been given promises of a senior position from the candidate in exchange for his endorsement.
