Dave Reynolds headed off the pack Thursday when he announced his intention to take a shot next year at returning as Porter County sheriff.

Reynolds, who served the maximum two consecutive terms as sheriff from 1999 to 2007, said he has been working since for an international security company.

"It's a good job, but the job I really want is to come back as sheriff," he said.

The post of sheriff is being vacated at the end of next year by David Lain, who will have reached his maximum number of allowed years in office. Lain took over when fellow Reynolds, who is also a Democrat, left office.

Reynolds said it's a pretty standard thought in law enforcement that the pinnacle position is county sheriff. He has worked in law enforcement since 1973, including a stint as police chief in Portage and an earlier period with Lake Station.

"I'm excited about coming back if the citizens of Porter County will have me," he said.

Reynolds is hosting an official announcement ceremony at 5 p.m. Monday outside the Porter County Sheriff's Department.
