My name is Scott Peters and I am the Deputy Chief for the Rochester Police Department. I am writing this letter of support for Brett Sobieraski in his run for Orleans County Sheriff.

I have known Brett for almost 27 years and I have never met a harder working man. I have had the pleasure of working side-by-side with Brett as well as being his direct supervisor. For several years, I was the Lieutenant in charge of the Greater Rochester Area Narcotics Enforcement Team or GRANET. Brett was the Sergeant in charge of one of my teams. There were many occasions where we assisted the Orleans County Drug Task Force when their investigations crossed into Monroe County. Brett was always my lead for these investigations due to his familiarity with the people involved as well as the locations. Every single one of those investigations led to a safe and successful conclusion due to the leadership of Brett and his ability to work with the Orleans County personnel.

During my time as the Department’s SWAT Commander, Brett was one of my team leaders as well. I could not have asked for a better Sergeant to lead our operations. Brett was a natural leader and always insisted his teammates worked relentlessly and professionally. He is one of the main reasons we have one of the best SWAT teams in the Country!

Brett’s desire to help others is unmatched. Every time he challenges himself to complete another super-human endeavor, it is not just for him. Every event was done to raise money for a needy individual, a charitable organization or for individuals who deserve extra help. Along with physically assisting him during these events, I have readily donated money to his causes because the donations were going to such good causes. I have no doubt this will continue in whatever Brett does in his life.

Please accept my letter of support. Brett will make an exemplary Sheriff for Orleans County. He will bring relentless energy to the office and will insist on having the most professional employees the County of Orleans deserves.
