Fairman's Vision

Committed to the community.


As the Sheriff of Cook County, Fairman looks forward to placing thousands of new police officers on the street by certifying correctional officers and making them peace officers.

Community policing would be increased around the county, including working with our schools and community centers to help teach, train and motivate our children.


Fairman will implement a video conferencing for inmates, thereby significantly reducing safety concerns and transportation issues between the jails and court houses.

Fairman will revitalize trust by being accountable and accessible in protection and service through innovation, collaboration and efficiency for the citizens of Cook County.
