   Shortly before noon on Wednesday, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Laquey High School in reference to a student making deadly threats. According to school officials, a juvenile student in their facility was making threats of bodily injury to several students by use of a firearm, both verbally and via electronic communications. Due to the evidence at hand, the school’s Student Resource Officer (SRO) and administrators felt this was an urgent situation and responded accordingly. Upon arrival of sheriff deputies, the student was taken into custody and turned over to a Pulaski County juvenile officer. There were no weapons located on school grounds and no reported injuries. Due to the juvenile student’s age, no other information about this subject can be released. The incident is currently under investigation. Laquey school officials can be commended for their efforts to immediately resolve the situation and render their school safe……………….. Sheriff Ronald Long

By: Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long
Volume 2

   Here I am already winding down week three as your new sheriff, and writing my second article for your review. As the old adage goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.” Despite the demands and multi-responsibilities of being sheriff, I truly am enjoying working for the citizens of Pulaski County. Attempting to write about all of the events of this past week would fill this entire media publication, so here I go with the condensed version.

   The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is continuing its path of restructuring individual departments and units within our agency. Supervisors are finding themselves with fewer avenues of responsibilities but elevated expectations in efficiency and productivity. With the implementation of our detective division with a unit commander, we are seeing patrol deputies being able to concentrate more on just patrol duties, but complete autonomy is still a ways down the road. We have two new deputies who are close to completing their field training periods, along with being about a week away from hiring an additional patrol deputy. Therefore, in the near future this will give our hard-working patrol division some relief, along with allowing us to take another step in structured units/duties.

   Over the past week countless hours of overtime, accompanied by a lot of time donated by reserve deputies, has taken us closer to resolving the theft and burglary problem that has been occurring in Pulaski County for some time now. On Thursday, a suspect was arrested soon after we responded to a burglary in progress call, in which a resident was barricaded inside the home. PCSD deputies, along with assistance from the Waynesville Police Department, were able to apprehend the suspect and recover some stolen property just a short time after the offense was committed. Due to the amount of firearms in this residence, we feel very fortunate there were no injuries involved in this crime.

Paralleling the above, a very concerning rash of firearm thefts led to an aggressive investigation into the matter. We now have two suspects in custody for multiple felony charges, and actively seeking another person of interest. These individuals are no strangers to our criminal justice system but this time around we will be seeking every avenue possible to convict the violators and keep them incarcerate for an extended period of time. I would also like to thank a few of our victims who were able to aid us in these investigations and help recover some of the stolen property.

Now it’s confession time……. Sunday evening your new sheriff was served a piece of “humble pie” by one of my young deputies. After receiving a complaint and information regarding some illegal drugs in the Buckhorn area, myself and one of my patrolmen attempted to make contact with the alleged violator, at which time he make an escape through an open back window. A foot pursuit then ensued though a field and into the woods. We both engaged in the pursuit, at which time my deputy out-ran his sheriff and was gaining ground on the suspect when he disappeared into a thickly-wooded area. Due to the cold temperatures and the arrival of law enforcement canine units, the suspect decided it would be wise to exit the woods and surrendered. A subsequent search of the resident revealed the suspect was manufacturing and in possession of substances believed to be illegal drug(s). The suspect was arrested and given a warm place at our “bed and breakfast” to stay for a while. Numerous formal charges are pending.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to attend a senior’s group meeting at one of our local churches and speak with them about our new sheriff’s department, along with passing out information about how seniors are being targeted for certain theft and fraud offenses. The group had a really great turnout, and was very interactive and accommodating. For those organizations that might be interested, I am available for invitations and would enjoy meeting your group members.

In the near future we will be doing some renovations to our jail, which will require additional tasks and more hard work for our jail staff. In the law enforcement field, many times correction officers and dispatchers do not receive the praise and public acknowledgment as do patrol deputies and detectives. Both of these departments are very essential for public protection and assisting our law enforcement endeavors, and have a very tough job. Our Pulaski County dispatchers and jailers do an excellent job and a few of you might be surprised to know our jail has fingerprint, iris scan and record systems that are on the cutting edge of law enforcement technology. These days, a criminal changing their name or using the identity of another to evade detection and prosecution is no longer useful. For those statisticians out there, iris scan technology has a “one in an eight billion” error rate, and our computer fingerprint system in linked to databases throughout the world.

It’s time to wrap things up, so once again I would like to say “thanks” for your support, and want to encourage each of you to do something positive for your community.

Stay safe and see you next week……. Your sheriff, Ronald Long.

On 01/16/2013, a vehicle committed a traffic violation within the city limits of Waynesville, when the officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop the vehicle accelerated and proceeded onto I-44 in a careless and imprudent manner placing motorists in danger. A pursuit entailed that eventually terminated in Pulaski County. Three subjects were taken into custody and a computer system was found in the vehicle that later was determined to be stolen in Pulaski County. The driver identified as Brandon Huett had a Capias warrant for Probation Violation and is currently incarcerated at the Pulaski County Jail. The passengers were identified as Tiana Reyes and River Hance. All subjects received criminal summons for receiving stolen property and Brandon Huett also received a criminal summons for resisting arrest/stop or detention. A big thanks to the quick response of Pulaski County Sheriff's Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Please keep in mind these are merely accusations and all subjects are innocent until found guilty in a court of law. 709, 708, 701, 710, PCSD, MSHP.

A potentially volatile scenario Thursday ended with the apprehension of one individual who was arrested for the criminal offense of Burglary of the First Degree.
The situation began at approximately 10:00 AM Thursday morning when the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from an individual who lives off of Springfield Road just south of Waynesville. The caller told dispatchers that several burglars had just broken into his home, and he was barricaded in a bedroom attempting to hide from the suspects.
Within minutes, law enforcement officers from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, the Waynesville Police Department, along with the Missouri State Highway Patrol were on scene and found the resident shaken, but unharmed. A search of the house revealed a burglary had occurred but the suspects had already left. The victim reported the theft of some property but felt very fortunate due to the number of firearms and ammunition in the home, which were within easy access to the suspects. The victim and his family were in the process of moving when the burglary occurred.
While responding to the emergency call, a Waynesville patrolman observed a person of interest leaving the area who matched the suspect’s description. A follow-up investigation based on the officer’s observation subsequently lead to the detention of one suspect. Before day’s end, detectives from the sheriff’s department had developed significant information and evidence, which lead to the arrest of one individual, along with the recovery of some stolen property. The suspect is now being held in the Pulaski County Jail pending formal charges.
According to Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long, this situation could have easily resulted in someone being seriously hurt. “With the suspects discovering the owner was indeed home, along with a number of visible firearms in the home, this property crime could have easily resulted in serious injury to either the victim, or suspect. I feel the victim was very fortunate in this situation,” advises Sheriff Long.
In addition to this case, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is aggressively working on other burglary and theft cases throughout the county. Last week a Dixon resident was arrested and charged with Receiving Stolen Property, resulting from property being recovered from a recent burglary. This arrest occurred as part of the ongoing Community Policing effort by sheriff deputies. Numerous other burglary/theft investigations are also underway, which will lead to more arrests in the very near future. 
Included in these burglaries cases are a multitude of firearms being taken, which has Sheriff Long and other law enforcement officials on high alert. “We are concerned about all crimes in our county but firearm thefts take a top priority with us,” the sheriff states. “This type of theft has the potential to evolve into additional violent and bodily injury crimes, so the stealing of guns will not be tolerated,” says the sheriff.  Long also feels that thieves fail to realize the serious consequences of stealing firearms, not just criminally but if caught in the act with a gun in-hand by an owner or law enforcement officer.
Sheriff Long concludes by conveying it is law enforcement’s primary concern to protect the citizens of our county and these criminals are placing us in a vicarious position. Therefore, if you have information regarding gun thefts or any other Pulaski County crimes, please call their Tip-Line at: 573.774.7948

Sneak Peek Sheriff's View / Sheriff Ron Longs first article.
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:10:39 PM »
By Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long

I welcome this opportunity to reach out to the citizens and visitors of Pulaski County as the new sheriff of our community. Early in his tenure, retired sheriff J.B. King began this weekly column, which for years kept our community abreast of criminal events throughout this area, along with the internal functions of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. Upon being elected, one of the first and many requests I had from the local media and county residents was to continue the weekly article from the sheriff’s office; therefore, it will go on.
I wish to start by saying a huge “thank you” to the county voters for having the confidence to elect me as the new Pulaski County Sheriff. What an honor this appointment is, and I can assure you that each day I will work diligently to deliver the most professional and community friendly law enforcement agency possible.
Beginning day one after the November election, the pace has been fast and furious to take over the sheriff’s seat on January 01. First of all, I am “very” gracious to retired Sheriff King for immediately offering an open door to me for this transitional period. We spent many hours covering topics from personnel and budget, to patrol and jail functions. In addition to the retired sheriff, I also appreciate all of the assistance and support from other county officials, along with our county commissioners, especially during these first two weeks in which my 2013 budget is due. With the current economic times, budgeting is certainly a challenge but I am fortunate to be working with commissioners who are as concerned about the needs of our community as I am.

I recently spent two weeks in Jefferson City attending the new sheriff’s school, which is sponsored by the Missouri Sheriff’s Association. Despite spending three decades in law enforcement, it still amazes me of all the responsibilities involved with this office. Fighting crime is just one faction of the many duties of a Missouri Sheriff. I can think of only a few elected positions that carry the responsibilities of being sheriff, along with the severe repercussions if not legally and appropriately administered.   Despite the demands, I am excited and very much looking forward to the years ahead as your sheriff.

Along with some new faces, you are also seeing changes with operational functions of this agency. We are making a concentrated effort to patrol the rural areas of our county where a lot of our burglaries and property crimes are occurring. Our deputies realize the severity of this problem and have been working diligently to resolve it. Recently, a variety of arrests in Pulaski and neighboring counties are aiding us in solving property crime sprees that have been occurring in the Crocker and Dixon areas. Some forthcoming news articles will covey in more detail about these endeavors.

Two recent appointments to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department will allow us to elevate the investigative aspect of this agency. On January 01, Mr. John Groves was selected to assume the role of Chief Deputy. John is a retired Army Colonel who has years of distinguished service in both civilian and military organizations. One aspect of John’s background includes extensive work in criminal investigations.

To supplement the addition of Major Groves, reserve deputy Don Hayden has been appointed Chief of Detectives. Mr. Hayden has a broad background in criminal investigations, and is internationally renowned in the field of juvenile death and assault cases. Our agency has several other reserve detectives who are second to none that will help us in the ongoing fight against crime. In additional to tackling current cases, the PCSD has/will also open some older “cold cases”, which will be aided by the efforts of retired Sheriff J.B. King, who has elected to continue serving our community as one of our reserve detectives.

During my campaign, many of you probably recall the mention of using reserve deputies to better serve our community. I have to brag at this point, because the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department has a reserve unit whose talent and experience could be envied throughout our nation. I have to thank Uncle Sam for bringing some of our talented deputies to this area. Also, Mr. Johnny Burgess was recently named as our Reserve Captain, who is already doing an outstanding job in coordinating efforts to supplement all divisions of our agency. Our department’s tactical unit (PCERT) is also comprised of reserve deputies, some of which have been tactical instructors for our United States military.

It’s time to wind my first article down but I can’t do so without once again mentioning the fact that one primary goal of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is to implement a community policing program, which will allow Pulaski County citizens the opportunity to meet or be part of their sheriff’s department. Therefore, within the next two weeks I will begin scheduling town-forum style meetings in every town in our community, which will allow each of you to meet with me and voice your concerns, comments or just come by and say hello to your sheriff and some of our department representatives. Until then, stay safe and make an effort to do something positive for your community.

And don’t forget to visit us at:

See you next week.

Thanks for helping prove our point.

The problem Pulaski County Missouri has is some of Republican Party! Some Republicans are Ignorant!  Pulaski County has been a Democratic County for years. Only J.B. King and Sonny Carter ever won the Sheriffs election on the Republican side in the last 50 + years! And it was as close as Gore and Bush presidential elections on a much smaller scale. So all you so call Republicans RICH folks in Pulaski County that think Mr. Long will win the election are fools. The Democratic Party all-ways supports the poor and the working class in the Country! Wake up Pulaski County; Republicans our out for them SELVES and the rich? Now the million dollar queston is?  Pulaski County, do we have more rich or poor people in the County? We all know that answer. Rember Mr.Long we know about how you left both Waynesville and St.Robert Police Dept. Also turned down a job with P.C.S.D. Why?  Also left with some one other than your self? Come back to the County and act like all is forgotton? The County needs a leader and not a yes man like Long in the Sheriffs Dept. Not some one that writes a novel? Also Has no idea about our military! Better yet run a budget? Remember Pulaski County Democratic party lets all show up at the polls and take our County back! GO vote on November 6 2012,
Good Luck Bill Andeson, hope you win Big!
