For over 30 years, Robert Chody has served our community at nearly every level of public safety before we elected him our Williamson County Sheriff.
Robert has served as a Corporal in the U.S. Army, worked for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, trained future police officers, and led some of Williamson County’s top public safety initiatives.
As Sheriff, Robert has built on his extensive experience in law enforcement to help keep our neighborhoods safe from violent criminals, gangs, drunk drivers, and human trafficking. He’s also taken meaningful steps to help victims of crime and ensure they receive the support and justice they deserve.
Upholding the Constitution
A strong Constitutionalist, Sheriff Chody knows law enforcement officials must serve and protect others while upholding everyone’s individual liberties to the utmost. Police officers are entrusted with defending our families and communities, but Robert knows they should never overstep their authority.
As our Sheriff, Robert adheres to the Constitution, provides transparency, and never violates our civil liberties or abuses the power of his position.
Protect Private Property Rights
Texans’ private property rights must be upheld. That’s why Sheriff Chody supports advancing individual freedom and following the 4th Amendment—so law enforcement officials never abuse their power or ignore the rule of law.
Since we elected him Sheriff, Robert has protected our private property rights at all costs.
Defending The 2nd Amendment
Every citizen has the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Robert is an unwavering defender of our right to own firearms. Robert agrees with our Founding Fathers that a strong 2nd Amendment empowers each of us to keep our families safe.
Supporting Our Veterans and First Responders
Our men and women in uniform perform the greatest service to our country: keeping us safe. A former National Guardsman, Robert is deeply committed to the heroes who have protected us abroad and at home.
When he was a Constable, Robert was charged with the solemn duty of helping plan the funeral processions for our fallen police officers. He knows the hardships and challenges facing families with loved ones who risk their lives for us.
Sheriff Chody honors the sacrifices of our heroes and ensure they have every tool needed to get the job done.
Child and Domestic Abuse
Sheriff Chody’s desire to serve in law enforcement comes from his experience growing up in an abusive family situation. Fortunately, when Robert was just 14 years old, a police officer intervened to remove his mother’s abusive boyfriend and took him to jail. He knew then, he wanted to become a police officer. Under Chody’s leadership, our children and families will be protected from those who would abuse them.
Police Lives Matter
With all of the recent protests and rhetoric designed to defame and denigrate our men and women in blue, Robert knows it is time to stand up and defend those who protect our neighborhoods. A lifelong lawman, Sheriff Chody rejects the efforts made by left-wing activists to diminish police officers.
That’s why Robert has been an outspoken advocate for law enforcement in the Police Lives Matter movement. As our Sheriff, Robert will continue to speak out for those who bravely serve on the frontlines in our community.
Enforcing DWI Laws
There’s no excuse for driving while intoxicated. That’s why previously Robert successfully implemented a DWI Task Force program that was praised by then-Attorney General Greg Abbott for its strong results. Building upon his solid record, Sheriff Chody has continued to enforce our DWI laws so our families always remain safe on the road.
Serving Our Community
Our neighborhoods should be the safest places we know. A resident of the area for over 20 years, Robert is deeply committed to protecting our neighborhoods. From leading Williamson County Brown Santa fundraising events to comforting the families of fallen police officers, Robert cares deeply for our community and shares our values.
With your support, Sheriff Chody will continue to lead by example when it comes to protecting and strengthening our local community for future generations.
