Rick Underhill. He said he was born in Decatur County in 1962 and graduated locally. He served in the U.S. Army with the military police. His career then took him to work as a dispatcher and jailer. In 1990, he became a deputy at the DCSD. He worked as a detective full time for a few years.
"I have a strong desire to serve you, except now as your sheriff," Underhill told the crowd. "I want to be your sheriff. If you can support me, I'd really appreciate it."
When asked about the closure of roads in emergency situations, Underhill said he does not like it, but understands that it is sometimes necessary. It often presents too much liability on the DCSD, and can create accidents as a result. Keeping traffic moving should be a priority, Underhill said.

Published January 14, 2010 01:21 pm - Decatur County Sheriff's Department Lt. Rick Underhill has entered the fray and intends to put his name on the Republican election ballot, in his bid to become sheriff in 2011.
Underhill Joins Ranks For Sheriff's Job
Rick Underhill has entered the fray and intends to put his name on the Republican election ballot, in his bid to become sheriff in 2011.
Underhill is hoping his 25 years of experience in the field, his knowledge of Greensburg and Decatur County and his extensive training will give him the edge when it comes down to election night.
His career has included more than 22 years with the Decatur County Sheriff's Department and three with the United States Army and the military police. He began as a dispatcher and a jailer in Decatur County in 1987. There, he worked the third shift and performed dual roles in those positions until becoming a DCSD deputy in 1990. Eventually, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, almost 13 years ago.
His tenure as a DCSD lieutenant has included duties as the night shift supervisor and two years as a detective. During his time as a detective, Underhill successfully investigated assaults on children, burglaries, robberies and even a murder-for-hire plot.
Though he is hoping to become Decatur County Sheriff next January, the process of running a campaign isn't new to Underhill. He unsuccessfully ran against current Sheriff Daryl Templeton, who himself had experienced an unsuccessful run before he was made sheriff. This time, however, Underhill feels the timing is better and that he knows more about the job than ever before.
"I know I have the experience, dedication and integrity to do the job," Underhill said. "(I have) a strong desire to serve the people. And that's all I've ever done."
Underhill entered the U.S. Army right after high school, launching his law enforcement career. He is a graduate of the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and a veteran.
If elected, Underhill said he would continue to serve the public the best he can.
"That's what we're sworn to do," he added.
Included in that plan is more law enforcement presence in rural Decatur County areas, a better and growing reserve deputy program and a department that is community oriented.
"I will do the job if people decide to give me the chance," Underhill said.
He may have his sights set on higher office, but his dedication to his department and fellow deputies remains.
"I couldn't ask for better people (at the DCSD)," Underhill explained. "They're good people. I hope I can lead them. I do have a strong desire and I want people to know I'm dedicated to this job. I want another opportunity to lead (the DCSD) further."
Underhill added that his campaign will ultimately feature a Webpage, but noted that he was listed in the phone book and encouraged residents to call him with questions or concerns.
"I have no problem talking to people," he said.
