Sheriff Melvin C. High announced he will be seeking a second term in 2014.
High was Prince George’s County's top cop from 2003 to 2008 before he retired from Prince George’s County Police Department.
“When I became sheriff, we had about 54,000 warrants outstanding, each month we receive about 2,600 a month, I have cut that down to about 44,000 warrants,” High said.
High is the first of several dozen people to announce his plan to run for a second term. Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker also announced he also will be running for a second term.
Prince George’s County primary elections will be held June 4, 2014, and the general elections will be Nov. 4, 2014.
