SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Dave Drew, a long-time member of the Woodbury County Sheriff's Department, was sworn in before a group of family, friends and other law officials.

He says he's excited about the direction that the department is heading and is looking forward to expanding the department's presence in the community.

This was Drew's third time running for sheriff, and first victory.

He says he's been anticipating this day for a while.

"When I got up this morning, I was thinking about a thousand different things, who to thank, and you know there's so many different people to thank along the way and we're blessed beyond measure. We're excited," said Dave Drew, the Woodbury County Sheriff said.

Drew says the sheriff's department will work to become more cost-efficient in the coming months.

He says there won't be layoffs, but some staff may not be replaced if they leave.
