Dear Sheriff Valdez,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, public policy, and criminal justice system.  In these subjects, I like to learn the importance of core values like the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect people’s civil liberties while reduce crime, have immigration reform to help refugees or immigrants be protected from oppression or oppressive government, and many others. Sheriff Valdez, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work  as Sheriff of Dallas County to be very inspiring to me and explain how I enjoyed watching your speech at the DNC 2016 convention.

In your current role as Sheriff of Dallas County, I like on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect women, minorities, people with disabilities, and people with different sexual orientation from being discriminated in public places along with education.  Also on Civil Rights, I am very proud on how you work with minorities communities to find ways to reduce racial profiling, hire women including minorities to work in law enforcement to make the department more diverse along with help their own community, advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, and expand law enforcement resources to help combat against hate crime.  Pushing for funds for forensic science with DNA testing to help solve crimes efficiently along with reduce sending an innocent person to jail, expanding treatment programs to help drug addicts get care they need to rehabilitate, supporting community service programs to help rehabilitate non-violent offenders including juveniles so they won’t re-offend, and working with other law enforcement agencies to find ways to reduce gun violence are great ways to help reform the criminal justice system.   Another thing that I like about your work is how you work hard to improve public safety like improve quality of health care in facilities to help people with mental illness, expand freeway management patrol system to cover in-county highways to make highways safe for people to drive, and construct jail facility to keep violent criminals off the street. Your commitment on making Civil Rights stronger, reforming the criminal justice system, and improving public safety are great ways to improve society while reduce crime.

Sheriff Valdez, I have Autism with a learning disability.  Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights, be committed to reduce discrimination with racial profiling, and be an advocate for people with disabilities; rights really inspire me to work hard on my disability.  During July 2016, I saw on tv of you giving a speech at the DNC convention 2016. I enjoyed your speech because you did an excellent job explaining about how you were born as an immigrant where you decided to go into law enforcement to help make a great difference in the criminal justice system while make society better, explain about the need to make police officers with law enforcement be efficient to help people, share how law enforcement can make a great impact, and the need for communities especially minorities communities to work with law enforcement to reduce tensions.  Your role as Sheriff of Dallas County motivates me to continue my interest in learning history with public policy.  My future goal is to someday work in public policy to help create common sense ideas to make society a better place.

I believe that you are making a great difference as Sheriff of Dallas County. I’m proud on how you work hard to make communities safe while reform the criminal justice system. You did an excellent job speaking at the DNC convention 2016 and sharing your story with the need to make society better.  Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great impact on law enforcement with society, and inspiring me.  I hope you enjoy my letter and I wish you well to continue to make a great impact on society.
