Patriot: Sheriff Richard Mack


CSPOA Founder: Richard Mack

Sheriff Richard Mack, served 20 years in law enforcement, starting in 1977 as a Parking Enforcement Cadet while working his way through College. In 1979 he was hired as a full-time Patrol Officer by the Provo, Utah Police Dept. In 1982 he took a one-year assignment as an Undercover Narcotics Agent. After this life changing experience, he became the School Resource Officer for the Provo School District. He was soon promoted to Corporal, Sergeant, and Detective where he worked cases involving robbery, kidnapping, murder, and child abuse, to name just a few.

In 1988 Mack moved to his hometown of Safford, Az and ran for Graham County Sheriff. He was elected and re-elected in 19992. In 1994 he became the first Sheriff in American History to launch a lawsuit against the Federal Government, take it all the way to the United States Supreme Court, and win a monumental landmark decision for Liberty, States’ Rights, and local autonomy. Seven sheriffs joined Mack in this lawsuit and he and Sheriff Jay Printz ended up at the Supreme Court in December of 1996. They won on June 27, 1997. This victory started a new career for Mack as an author, activist, and the Founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association. He now does seminars all across the USA teaching sheriffs and public servants in the role they all have in preserving Liberty. Sheriff Mack was named NRA Law Officer of the Year and inducted into the NRA Hall of Fame. He also was named Defender of the Second Amendment by the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America, and named Elected Official of the Year by the NM/AZ Coalition of Counties. In 2016 Mack received the Buford Pusser “Walking Tall” Lifetime Achievement Award as chosen by Sheriff Pusser’s daughter, Dawana Pusser.

ROBERT STEELE: I have called Richard Mack the second most important man in America after President Donald Trump, and I stand by that. The “sheriffs’ movement” has the Deep State worried for the simple reason that no amount of federal overreach — or force –can defeat a single elected Sheriff who deputizes all able-bodied citizens willing to stand tall in support of the Constitution on their home ground.
