Gregory Keefer

                                           for  Sheriff of Boise County 

    My name is Gregory Keefer and I am a conservative, Republican, candidate for Sheriff of Boise County for May 2020. I am a husband, father, retired field deputy, a combat veteran, and not a politician. My commitments to the people of Boise County and to the Boise County Sheriff's Office Employees are realistic, obtainable, sustainable and do not involve additional tax funding. I tell my children every day, "do the right thing, not the easy thing!" I always have, and always will, stick to my word!

     I am 48 years old and married to my beautiful wife April. We have lived in the Clear Creek area of Boise County for ten years. April is a great mom and an Emergency Department-Registered Nurse at St. Lukes in Boise. We have three children, MaKenzie-23, Rylan-19 and Wyatt-8. MaKenzie lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming and is in her second year of Veterinary School at Colorado State University, Fort Collins. Rylan is attending Northwest Lineman School in Meridian. Wyatt is in third grade at Basin Elementary school. Wyatt is a military, target shooting, hunting, motocross, football, and fishing fanatic. 

    I have a 15 year background as a Patrol Deputy Sheriff from the small community of Mohave County, Arizona to the larger metropolitan area of Los Angeles County, California. In Mohave County Arizona, I worked patrol and watercraft assignments in the rural parts of Kingman, Mohave Valley, Peach Springs, and Lake Havasu City. In January 1993, I was awarded the "Life Saving" award for rescuing a child who was drowning in the Colorado River. 

     In Los Angeles County, I worked Patrol at Compton Station and Lomita Station. I also had collateral duties as a National Registry Paramedic instructor/Advanced Cardiac Life Support Instructor for the specialized Sheriff's Air Rescue Detail (ESD), the elite SWAT (SEB) Paramedics and as a Tactical Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (Tac-EMT) instructor for Sheriff Patrol Deputies. My law enforcement assignments included: Patrol, Evictions/Restraining Orders/Civil Process Detail, Los Angeles County jail and as a Bailiff in Los Angeles County Superior Court. I retired in 2009 from a near fatal in the line-of-duty injury.

    I am also a decorated Combat Veteran. I spent three years on Active Duty in the United States Air force, four years in the Air National Guard, and three years in the U.S. Army Reserve. In the Air Force, I attended Air Force leadership schools, Pararescue NREMT-Intermediate school, NASA helicopter rescue training, S.E.R.E. Combat Survival School, Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) NR-Paramedic School and Navy Special Warfare-Advanced Trauma Life Support. I was a member of the NASA Space Shuttle helicopter rescue team and an Air Evacuation Paramedic on C-130 aircraft. I also taught NREMT-Intermediate classes to the U.S. Army-75th Ranger Regiment, AFSOC-720th Special Tactics Squadron, and to Air Evacuation/Ambulance EMT's. I was chosen to represent the 146th Air Evacuation Squadron's executive leadership to AFSOC-Hurlburt Field, Florida while managing programs, drafting policy, maintaining a budget and developing a 25 member specially trained air evacuation team.

    In 2001, I was recruited, passed an interview-selection process and completed John F. Kennedy-Special Warfare Center-Civil Affairs School (U.S. Army Special Operations Command-USASOC). I was awarded dual Military Occupational Specialties 38A and 91W/W3 (current Special Operations MOS-38B/W4 and 68W/W4). I was assigned to the 426th Civil Affairs Battalion (426th CA Bn) as a Civil Affairs Medical Team Sergeant- Paramedic. The 426th CA Bn was operationally attached to 1st Special Forces Group (Green Berets) at Fort Lewis/McChord, Washington.

   My unit's assigned mission was to integrate into local communities, build community relationships, assess community needs, restore community trust, provide austere community medical care, and solve critical community issues, while attached to a Green Beret "ODA" team. The 426th CA Bn's Joint Special Operations missions included: Myanmar, the Philippines, the Middle East, and throughout the pacific theatre. I was deployed to "Operation Joint Guardian"-Macedonia/Kosovo campaign and received presidential orders immediately following 09/11 for "Operation Enduring Freedom" (Global War on Terror). I have deployed to twelve states and six foreign countries in service to our great nation.

    My diverse experience in law enforcement, management and leadership in specialized military units, experience in community building, combined with my commitment to integrity, elevate training, and to instill professional Sheriff ethics, makes me the most qualified choice for Sheriff of Boise County on May 19th, 2020.
