Brenda Burnette, retired captain with the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office, and currently captain with the Jackson Police Department, has filed to run for sheriff of Northampton County.


I am a candidate with 34 years of credible law enforcement services in which I have built long lasting relationships with the citizens throughout Northampton County.

I have an associates degree in criminal justice and am currently working on my bachelor’s degree also in criminal justice, along with many hours of law enforcement training.  

I was born, raised, and educated in Northampton County.

I am a member of Allen Chapel AME Church, captain of Relay for Life Team Live, Laugh and Love, member of the Northampton County Special Olympics, chairperson of WIN (Women In the NAACP), second vice president of the Northampton Branch of the NAACP, third vice president of the Northampton County Democratic Women, state trustee of the Northampton County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 47, former organizer and coordinator of the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office Crime Stoppers Program and secretary of the Northampton/Halifax Reentry Council.

The safety of our families, our kids, our seniors, our neighbors, and our friends deserve the best we can offer.

Law enforcement should be about protecting and serving the community in which you love. When I am given the opportunity to serve the citizens of Northampton County you will get to meet the faces of the sheriff’s office.

The employees of the sheriff’s office will be encouraged to get involved in the community in which they work.

The sheriff’s office will be more accessible, responsive, open, more visible, and active throughout the entire Northampton County.

As your sheriff, I will enforce strong public safety, quick and courteous service, proactive law enforcement, strong drug enforcement, safe schools, community involvement and community policing.

I will lead by example and serve the citizens of Northampton County along with my staff with respect, professionalism, and integrity.

Together we can make positive changes in Northampton County.
