Peoria County deputy announces run for sheriff's office

Blaine Duhs for Peoria County Sheriff

A Peoria County sheriff's deputy is running to lead the office.

Blaine Duhs announced his candidacy last week. The Republican began as an auxiliary deputy in the sheriff's office in 2001, and was hired on as a deputy in 2003.

He's also an adjunct professor at Illinois Central College, teaching law enforcement.

Incumbent Sheriff Brian Asbell, also a Republican, announced during a November county board meeting that he wouldn't run for another term in office, citing disagreements with unspecified policy decisions made by the board.

The Glasford native has three children.
