I first met Brian almost 25 years ago when I was doing my internship for BCCC at the Barton County Sheriff’s Department. Brian and Bruce Green were the only two officers that took a genuine interest in mentoring me and showed an interest in teaching me about law enforcement. Had they both treated me like others did, I most likely would not be in this profession today. I have held onto their philosophy throughout my career and try to treat every young officer with the dignity that these men showed me. I have ran into both Brian and Bruce numerous times throughout the years and they always take time to stop and talk. They both are truly dedicated to my hometown community and the Barton County Sheriff’s Department. Brian would have my vote if I still resided there, therefore I encourage all my friends and family to vote Bellendir.
