LAPORTE | Becoming LaPorte County sheriff is something John Boyd has wanted since the fourth grade at Kingsbury Elementary School.

He's now getting his chance announcing Sunday that he's seeking the Republican nomination.

"For it starting to be coming to fruition it's just a blessing for me and my family," said Boyd, who now carries the rank of major after 23 years at the sheriff's office.

If elected, Boyd, who started the countywide DARE program to educate students in the schools about the dangers of drugs, said his main goal would be to keep attacking the heroin problem and improving safety in the schools.

Chief Deputy Jim Sosinski previously announced his bid to seek the Democratic nomination for sheriff.
