Former Assistant Reno Police Chief Jim Weston can't stay away from law enforcement.
Ten months after retiring from the Reno Police Department, he
has announced he's running for Washoe County sheriff.
The 54-year-old Weston says he was simply too young to retire
and he's open to trying new solutions to old issues.
He landed a job with a local staffing company after he ended his
32-year career with the Reno force last March.
Weston is the first person to announce he's running for the job
held by Dennis Balaam, who has decided not to seek re-election.
