Muskogee Police Lieutenant Andy Simmons has announced he is running for Muskogee County Sheriff.

The incumbent, Rob Frazier, has resigned and will leave the post at the end of this month. County Commissioners are meeting today to discuss appointing an interim sheriff, and sources close to the council have indicated councilors want to appoint a sheriff who isn’t interested in running for the job to avoid giving an unfair advantage by incumbency to any candidate.

“I want to make Muskogee County better, safer,” Simmons said.

A US Navy submarine veteran, Simmons has served on the Muskogee Police force for 24 years and is currently the president of the local chapter of Fraternal Order of Police. His mission, he said, is to provide training for law enforcement, address issues at the jail, step up narcotics enforcement and reach out to the youth of the county.
