TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—Candidates for Tippecanoe County Sheriff are working toward lowering the number of child sex crimes.
Bob Goldsmith said he wants one building where officials can discuss plans together. The current child advocacy center, The Heartford House, and law enforcement buildings are all separate.
"We are already working these cases, they're already there," said Goldsmith. "We don't need to reinvent the wheel, we need to be in the same automobile."
Republican candidate Jason Dombkowski said he's had a similar idea in the works for months. Implementing a sex crimes task force could be a better answer.
"It's been an issue on our campaign trail," said Dombkowski. "A 5-point plan I produced back in April was the number two point on the five-point plan and it was a sex crime task force."
Goldsmith also said starting RAD programs in schools would help prevent problems before they begin. He said he will continue to hold press conferences for the next few weeks.
