Overstreet adds name to sheriff's race

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Wednesday we can officially tell you the name of a third person who wants to become the next Lubbock County Sheriff.

David Gutierrez will step down effective September 12th to take a job with the State of Texas. Now, Lubbock's Director of Animal Control Services, Kevin Overstreet, says he'd like to apply to the county commissioners for that position.

Overstreet adds his name alongside Chief Deputy Kelly Rowe and Deputy Don Carter. "Not only do I have the law enforcement experience but also have the jail experience. I ran the jail in Childress County for about eight years. I passed every single jail inspection. When jail inspection came around each year, I passed it. Certainly this jail is on a much larger scale but it's all basically the same," said Kevin Overstreet.

Overstreet has experience as a sheriff's department captain and as the city of Lubbock's Emergency Management Director.
