Contributing sentiments towards policy:

50% : Rowe, on the other hand, is a retired major from the county sheriff's office with a long record of community service, and says that, within law enforcement, crime can be better prevented by engaging with the community rather than making arrests.
36% : The INDY endorsed Rowe in this election, in part due to Baker's mishandling of the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 in downtown Raleigh and sheriff's deputies use of tear gas and rubber bullets leveled at demonstrators, among other scandals in the sheriff's office.
