  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

 “The Sheriff’s View” (#128)

The week began with exciting news for your Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, after being notified that the Lake of the Ozarks Major Case Squad (LOMCS) had voted to accept us as a member agency. I covered this topic in a weekly article a few months ago, but in summary your Sheriff’s Department and other agencies within a three-county area will benefit by this venture. The LOMCS is comprised of multiple law enforcement agencies from the lake area, who have agreed to supply trained detectives to any member city or county department when faced with a large scale investigation.

The Major Case Squad can be activated in a multitude of scenarios, with the exception of narcotic investigations. The exclusion of narcotic investigations is due to a number of drug enforcement units already in existence. An exception to this exclusion would be if a drug investigation is incorporated into another major crime, such as Organized Crime or a homicide. Upon activation of the LOMCS for a Pulaski County incident, a number of out-of-agency detectives will be assigned to assist your Sheriff’s Department with the investigation, until completion. The services of the Major Case Squad comes with a minor price tag: only $100 a year!

A new topic about an old subject that has really come to the forefront in the law enforcement arena over the past few years is the topic (and crime) of Human Trafficking. Last year I was able to attend a conference in Columbia that Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler hosted regarding human trafficking. Sitting on the panel of experts for the seminar was an ex-Waynesville resident, Steve Dunlap. Steve and his wife are the founders of an organization that builds and manages rescue centers for female victims of human trafficking.

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of another such rescue center that the Dunlaps were opening in a city south of Pulaski County. This new center will be the home to multiple females that have escaped the grips of this encompassing crime. Any female that is accepted into this rescue center will have a rent-free home for a two year period, while she undergoes a multi-faceted recovery program. The above rescue center will also be available to Pulaski County victims, in which plans are underway for a Pulaski County victim to possibly become a resident of the center.

I usually don’t comment on our national issues but it is difficult not to when thinking about the domestic terror attack that encompassed Chattanooga, Tennessee this past week. Another horrific attack on U.S. soil by someone that hated our nation. Over the past 15 years, we have seen an elevated number of such attacks and with the many terror organizations now in existence, we can conclude by saying this will not be the last such tragedy on U.S. soil.

With Fort Leonard Wood being a part of our community, attacks on Federal Military property become even more realistic, and alarming, for us all. Your Sheriff’s Department is all about keeping our community safe, so we are constantly preparing for the unexpected. I am hoping for, and will support, initiatives that will allow our military to protect themselves while working at off-base military facilities. Our sympathy and prayers go to the families of our fallen military men in Chattanooga last week.

In concluding, we are appreciative to all of you that contacted the Sheriff’s Department to wish the detective attacked by the German shepherd last week a speedy recovery. The injured detective is doing well and on the road to recovery.

This concludes another week’s summary as your Pulaski County sheriff, and I hope to see you here again next week. For more information about the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department and other related items of interest, please visit our website (www.pcsheriff2.com), or on Facebook.

As always, stay safe and do something positive for your community.

 Sheriff Ronald Long
