Hislop officially running

Hislop officially enters Sheriff's race
The chief investigator of the Humboldt County District Attorney's Office is looking to become the county's top cop.
”It's my extreme pleasure to introduce Mike Hislop, our next sheriff of Humboldt County,” District Attorney Paul Gallegos said Monday at the Humboldt Bay Inn, introducing Hislop to a group of several dozen supporters.

Despite budget restrictions, Hislop said he was able to revamp the investigations unit, part by outfitting investigators with new equipment, uniformsin and crime-scene re-enactment technology, all without impacting the department's budget, by helping to secure about $750,000 in grant funding for the department from a variety of sources.

  1. Comment just made on my blog claims there were no more than a couple dozen people at Hislop's kick- off event.

  2. I'm hearing about 18, which is close to a couple dozen. (24)
