To the editor:
My name is Bob Giles. I am a graduate from the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy (I.L.E.A.) 76th Basic Class 1982. I also have a four-year degree in Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice and Masters of Public Administration from Drake University.
I have known Landon for 23 years. I went to work for Chief White for the city of Manly, Iowa in 1996. I consider Landon to be one of the finest law enforcement officers I’ve had the pleasure to have worked with.
During Landon’s tenure as Chief of Police his administrative and leadership skills were impeccable. Loyalty and dedication to duty stand out as two of his most admirable attributes. Landon displayed his professional coordination with other law enforcement agencies such as Worth County Sheriff’s Department, Cerro Gordo County Attorney’s office, Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department and North Iowa Drug Task Force. Together we resolved different burglary rings and made numerous drug arrest.
Landon’s exemplary past is extraordinary. I know while serving in the United States Marine Corp. he received many letters of commendation for example Top Marksmen Firearms Instructor, Distinguished Honor Graduate from the Military Police Academy and Military K-9 Units just to name a few.
Landon accepted a position with a company that had Government contracts for Federal facilities. During his tenure with this company he was project site manager, quality control coordinator and supervisor for the training of twenty two explosive detection K-9 teams. He also served as Vice President for the Professional Investigators and Security Association.
Throughout the 23 years I’ve known Landon, “Public Service has always been first and foremost in everything he has done.”
Landon would be an exceptional Chief Law Enforcement Officer for Ringgold County, “Sheriff Landon White.”
