Tim Carroll, an investigator at Hamilton County District Attorney's Office, has announced he will not seek the office of Hamilton County sheriff.

Carroll, who recently conducted a poll, held a fundraising event and printed campaign materials, said he will not be running.

"This has not been an easy decision for me as I have worried about it, prayed about it, and discussed it in length with my family, friends, and supporters. There is no doubt that I am qualified and have the experience to be a viable candidate for the office of sheriff," Carroll said in a released statement.

Carroll said he opted not to run after a recent poll was conducted which, "indicates to me that the citizens of Hamilton County are satisfied with Sheriff [Jim] Hammond's job performance and desire to re-elect him to office."
