  • 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” (#48)
We have several items coming to fruition this week that have been a focus of our efforts lately. First, Monday we are having our first roundtable discussion about the heroin problem in Pulaski County. Despite our increased efforts and arrest numbers, when it comes to drug enforcement, we continue losing young lives to this ferocious enemy. Personally, in my 34 years of law enforcement, I have never seen a drug taking a deadly toll like the heroin we are seeing in this area right now. Not only is Pulaski being hit, other counties in Central Missouri are also experiencing this deadly phenomenon, just on a lesser scale.
As ironic as this may sound, the war against our illegal drug problem is not just a law enforcement issue, it is a community problem. Actually, law enforcement plays just a small part in fighting drug addiction and we must rely on many non-enforcement avenues to assist with this endeavor. Therefore, in addition to law enforcement and judicial officials, medical professionals, drug counselors, educators, and concerned citizens will also be attending. Our goal is to formulate ideas and implement plans to deter heroin overdoses and deaths in Pulaski County. I will be reporting more about this meeting in further articles.
Regarding money and manpower issues, nothing at a Sheriff’s Department is more challenging than housing and taking care of inmates in a County jail; Pulaski County is certainly no exception. As I have reported in the past, this year will conclude with the payment of approximately $400,000 to neighboring counties to house inmates that the Pulaski County Jail does not have room for.
This Thursday I will be submitting, to your County Commissioners, a proposal that would assist to alleviate a majority of this issue on a short-term basis. If this proposal is approved, it could result in a significant financial savings to the jail budget. This is not a long-term cure to our inmate housing issues, but it would be a great interim solution. As with the first item, I will be reporting more about this topic in future articles, if approved by the County Commission.
When adverse weather hits, such as snow and ice, some of you in the County have concerns about emergency services reaching your location, if needed. This week’s winter weather was the first test for our six new, all-wheel drive vehicles. I must say that their performance exceeded my expectations and we were able to reach all of our calls for service in a timely manner. Except for deep snowfalls, our new Taurus’s and Explorers do better in the snow and ice than the three older, four-wheel drive vehicles in our fleet. This is just another advantage of owning these new vehicles.
Friday marked the last day of Mr. Alexander (Alex) Pfeffer’s internship with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. Intern Pfeffer has been working here since August, and has been actively involved in all aspects of the law enforcement field. Speaking for the entire sheriff’s department, we hate to see Intern Pfeffer leave, as he has become a professional family member. Undoubtedly, Mr. Pfeffer will make an excellent law enforcement officer with the agency he is eventually employed by. The Sheriff’s Department wishes Alex the best in his future 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
