Dear Friends, I retired as Sheriff for Washburn County, in 2019 after 28 years serving you fine folks. In 2014 I stole Warren Tuttle from St. Croix Tribal Police, I had to pry Warren from Chief Taylors clutches. Warren brought a lot with him to the Washburn County Sheriff's Office. Warren's training, experience, mentorship were only a part of his benefits. During my background investigation into Warren I found several things that were more important to me, as sheriff. Warren's compassion for those in need and just as important, he really cares for others. I ask that you consider voting for Warren for your Sheriff. You will not be disappointed. Terry C.

Warren is a former St. Croix Tribal Police Sergeant and candidate for Washburn County Sheriff.

He worked for our department for about 8 years and during that time, he developed into an excellent officer and leader.  His ability to communicate effectively and show compassion for those that need help is unmatched.  He was a great asset to the development of our younger officers and was truly respected within our tribal communities.

Please take the time to get to know Warren.  He's an exceptional sheriff's deputy but more importantly, he's an exceptional person.

— Frank Taylor, St. Croix Tribal Police Chief

Dear residents of Washburn County,

My name is Dan Wellumson. I served in the law-enforcement profession for 32 years, most recently with the Boyceville Police Department as their Chief of Police. It is my distinct pleasure to endorse Deputy Warren Tuttle as Washburn County’s next sheriff.

I have known the Tuttle family for over 20 years. From the moment I met them, it was clear that they were a hard-working farm family who knew the importance of diligence and wise business practices, coupled with a strong moral compass that pointed directly north.

In 2006, I had the privilege of hiring Warren Tuttle has a part-time officer with the Boyceville Police Department. He displayed the same character traits that his family exhibited. Warren served as a compassionate, thoughtful Officer that displayed a keen sense of justice. He was the kind of officer I wanted serving the people of Boyceville. As I worked side-by-side with him, I saw the potential for him to lead others in a law enforcement capacity and to guide an agency to outstanding service to the community .

I was thrilled to hear that Deputy Tuttle was seeking the lead law-enforcement position at Washburn County and I am confident that he will continue his legacy of strong leadership and care to all those in Washburn County.
