  • 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
        #27
BY: Sheriff Ronald Long
   

We began last week by announcing our first Employee of The Month, Corporal Mike Mogan, at Monday’s Commissioner’s meeting. Cpl. Mogan has consistently demonstrated leadership skills and outstanding law enforcement expertise, earning him this title. In addition to being our first employee of the month, Corporal Mogan also received the Sheriff’s Metal of Merit. Last month, Cpl. Mogan responded to a situation at a motel in Buckhorn, where a male suspect was destroying property and threatening patrons. Upon arriving on scene, the suspect attempted to attack Mogan with a large crowbar. The suspect was quickly subdued when the corporal deployed his taser gun; therefore, concluding a possible deadly force situation using minimal force. Congratulations, Corporal Mogan, for a job well done!

Changes are currently being made to our sheriff department web-site (www.pcsheriff2.com). We are appreciative to the Waynesville School District for loaning two of their Vista workers who are proficient in computer technology. These two employees will be assisting Senior Deputy Pam Sherrill with some updates, changes and additions to our web-site. Deputy Sherrill stays very busy with the CCW permits but will be finding a little extra time to supervise this project. Keep checking our web-site for these changes, and your feedback is definitely welcome.

Toward the middle of this week via a news release, I will be summarizing our mid-year crime statistics and racial profiling reports. All law enforcement agencies are required to keep and report these statistics to the state of Missouri and the Federal Department of Justice. Law enforcement has evolved in a positive manner over recent years, to where every officer and deputy is held accountable for their actions. These rules have been very instrumental in assisting law enforcement agencies in becoming fair and more professional to each and every citizen they come in contact with. Our crime statistics will also reflect how hard our deputies have been working for you and the results of their efforts. These are some positive statistics that I am anxious to release.

For the past month we have been seeing a decline in our jail population and I have to thank our prosecutor and judges for helping make this possible. For months, we have been struggling to find resources (money and space) to house the large inmate population we have on a daily basis. Since January, we have been housing on the average of 40 inmates a day in other area jail facilities. Recently, this number dropped to 20 daily being outsourced, to 10 inmates as of Friday. We can only hope this trend continues. Due to aggressive efforts by our prosecutor’s office and local magistrates, criminal cases are being disposed of in a more timely fashion, which is lessening the length of time we are required to house an inmate prior to his/her court date. These actions are having a positive effect on my jail budget and staffing matters.
Ok, here comes a good one! I try to pass along a safety or crime tip to you each week and here is an extraordinary one. A few days ago, a family member was fishing the Little Piney River at a location between Newburg and Devil’s Elbow. The fish were biting but apparently they were not the only things that were. Around dusk, while standing in waist-high water, he was suddenly slammed into by a creature under the water’s surface. After being knocked completely off his feet, the creature struck him again, this time aggressively biting into his lower leg. He was able to shake it loose, and a few seconds later a large beaver (40-50 lbs) surfaced and began another charge toward him. At this point, he was able to ward off the attack by using a rock as a weapon against the animal and eventually slaying it. The local conservation agent was contacted after he arrived at the hospital. According to the conversation agent, this was the first such attack he had heard of in this area, and even though these incidents can happen, they are rare. This relative is recovering but is undergoing a series of antibiotic and rabies shots due to this attack. Moral of this story, always take a buddy to the river or woods with you because you never know what can happen.       

Last week’s Neighborhood Crime Watch meeting in Dixon went well, with approximately 40 people attending. These folks are definitely on track to help safeguard their relatives, neighbors and property. We applaud their endeavors!

 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 Web-site at (www.pcsheriff2.com), or on Facebook.

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

Sheriff Ronald Long

I have watched the in car camera footage of Cpl.Mogan's incident at the motel. Outstanding job by Mogan in taking the idiot down without deadly force. At such close range I am not sure I could have stood there and done that. Suspect I would have been reaching for a .40 cal.
