Retired Cary officer to run for sheriff

WOODSTOCK – A retired Des Plaines police commander reportedly plans to run for McHenry County sheriff.

Bill Prim of Cary is running, according to published reports, but he has not responded to requests for comment by the Northwest Herald nor sent a written statement.

Prim's would be the third person announcing intentions to enter the race. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and Jim Harrison, a local attorney who also worked as a deputy for about eight years, are the other candidates for the 2014 election.

About a year ago, Zinke said he planned to run. Harrison confirmed his candidacy to the Northwest Herald about two weeks ago as he discussed a complaint he filed against Zinke to a federal investigatory agency.

Sheriff Keith Nygren said that his current term will be his last. He took office in 1997.
