Larry Weigand is the Republican running for Delaware County Sheriff. He is still a firefighter at the Marcus Hook Trainer Fire Department, where he’s a sixth-generation first responder. He spent nearly 23 years with the Chester Police Department before retiring as a detective, and he also served as a part-time officer for Marcus Hook at the same time.

He talks to DVJ News Editor Linda Stein about his bid to become Sheriff — and how he won an award for heroism at the age of 13.
