Elected as the sheriff in 2014, Childress has since been invited to the White House several times, most recently to take part in a roundtable discussion with law-enforcement leaders in early June 2020.

Childress recommends community programs that “create partnerships” with the civilians. Programs, such as Shopping with the Sheriff, allow children to “go shopping one-on-one with a uniformed police officer.” After buying them necessities and clothing, “we let them buy a toy for Christmas. I have always said that if we can get to the children when they’re young, it just makes for a better relationship when they become adults.”

As a Black police officer, Childress recommends that other Black law-enforcement officers “make sure that everything [they] do is correct and right. You have to treat people right, you have to treat them well. And if you don’t, it’s going to come back to you. Good will follow good, and bad will follow bad.”
