  • nursejdavis: I am looking for a few Press Releases from Kevin Hillman that have disappeared.... not sure why they would be hidden from the public unless they contain narcs who have gotten their charges dropped for their cooperation. Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

  • 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..
    August 08, 2016, 07:46:34 AM
  • 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.

    July 08, 2016, 12:54:09 PM
  • 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.
    April 15, 2016, 06:36:14 PM
  • 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.

    March 01, 2016, 04:55:37 AM
  • 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.

BY: Sheriff Ronald Long
   I must say, last week was an extraordinary one. Tragedy struck early Monday morning and repeated itself a few days later, as two of our young local mothers were needlessly struck by gunfire; one fatally wounded and the other left in critical condition. Two major crimes, along with all of the other incidents occurring in this area requiring law enforcement attention, definitely tested manpower resources at our disposal. You have read or heard from me many of times about how nothing less than a team multi-departmental approach to attack Pulaski County crime is the necessary avenue to give our citizens the service and protection each of you deserve. What I personally witnessed last week was nothing less than a textbook case on how this works.

   Shortly after 6 AM came the 911 call, advising of the shooting at the Alpine Haus in St. Robert. One woman had been fatally shot with multiple suspects on the run, therefore leaving many avenues to cover for local law enforcement officers. The St. Robert Police Department quickly called the Missouri State Highway Patrol, requesting an investigator from their Division of Drug and Crime Control to assist with the homicide. Also, officers and deputies from multiple jurisdictions soon offered their assistance, knowing the excessive manpower needs required to work such a case.  A command center was then implemented at the St. Robert Police Department, which became a location for dozens of law enforcement officers from multiple counties to meet. In less than one hour, St. Robert PD had organized a Task Force to bring these murderers to justice.

   I have personally seen the positive effects of Task Forces, and a similar joint endeavor was needed to bring these suspects swiftly to justice. Just as you may have seen on reality television shows, the first 24-48 hours of a homicide investigation are very critical.

   For several days, investigators, supervisors, patrol personnel, and the prosecutor’s office, along with the chief and your sheriff, worked jointly. Then, on Wednesday, a similar scenario unfolded when another female was critically shot. Jurisdictional duties became non-existent, as each cop there did any job asked of them. The results from this effort speak loudly, due to all suspects being apprehended within the week, with criminal charges filed against them.

    Police Chiefs throughout this county and me, along with sheriffs’ departments and police agencies from adjoining counties, are working hard to develop and utilize joint endeavors to attack major crime problems and to better serve our community. These endeavors, along with great support we receive from the prosecutor and judges, will continue to make your county a safe place. 

A recent semi-annual review of crime statistics and racial profile reports for Pulaski County was compiled this past week, which reflected some interesting facts. Seeing a 27% drop in Class I crimes for Pulaski County, along with an increase in some felony and drug crime arrests, was enough to excite your sheriff. For further details, please see the complete article, “Crime Plummets in Rural Pulaski County”, on our web-site and Facebook page.

I promise to be more diverse in next week’s article but in the mean-time, I would like to invite each of you to stop by the Pulaski County Sheriff Department booth at Old Settlers Day in Waynesville this Saturday and visit with your deputies and me.

 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 (, or on Facebook.

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

Sheriff Ronald Long
