Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield, one of the most popular Republican politicians in Burlington County, will not seek re-election in 2019.

Stanfield told the New Jersey Globe that she will retire on May 1, seven months before her term is due to expire.

She said that Undersheriff Diane Jasmine will become acting sheriff, and chief of detectives Mike Ditzel will become undersheriff.

Stanfield said she did not expect Jasmine to be a candidate for sheriff in the November general election.

The retirement announcement brings to a close a long and distinguished career in public office.

Stanfield joined the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department in 1996 as an undersheriff after serving as an assistant prosecutor.

She was elected Sheriff in 2001 and re-elected five times.

Her only electoral defeat came in 2003, when she nearly ousted Assemblyman Jack Conners (D-Pennsauken).
