  • sheriff and earnest"Sheriff Karen Bowden has always been extremely professional and I cannot thank her enough for the 22 years she served my brother, B.J. Roberts and the City of Hampton as Undersheriff.

    "B. J. was a master at evaluating one’s character, work ethic and vision. He was very selective in the people he confided in and trusted. Karen Bowden was at the top of his list. He often praised her unparalleled dedication to the Sheriff’s Office as well as her friendship, and had no doubt that she would be the next Sheriff of Hampton. B. J. knew that Karen would flourish and protect this City.

    "If Karen Bowden was his choice, then she’s my choice."


    - Earnest Roberts
