  • 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.

Weekly Article, “The Sheriff’s View” (#129)


 On many occasions you have heard or read about how the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department firmly believes in, and practices, the team concept. This relates to all aspects of law enforcement, including working with and building relationships with surrounding agencies. The goal of having communities that are safer places to live and play is contingent on how well local, state and federal agencies work together. I can’t think of one law enforcement agency that can autonomously achieve the above mentioned objectives without reaching out to others for help.

With the above being said, several members of your Sheriff’s Department and I traveled to Rolla last week to meet with Chief Fagan, who was sworn into office last month as Rolla’s new police chief. In the past, Rolla PD and this agency have enjoyed a working relationship in which both agencies have benefited from mutual aid situations, mostly when dealing with drug enforcement and tactical situations. It is a pleasure getting to know Chief Fagan on a personal and professional basis, who brings to the Rolla community many years of law enforcement and leadership experience. Upon concluding, both agencies agreed to continue assisting each other, in which the Chief and I will be signing a new Mutual Aid agreement within the next few weeks.

One obstacle that the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department has been dealing with for years is an aging vehicle fleet, which has become a very costly endeavor to this agency. Upon researching the matter, it was concluded that the purchase of new patrol cars instead of older ones with high mileage would be the most effective means to cure the aging fleet dilemma. Therefore, two years ago the County Commission consented to the purchase of five new patrol vehicles. For the past two years six new vehicles have entered into the fleet (one additional from an insurance claim), which has undoubtedly been the solution to the old and expensive patrol car problem. Detailed records are kept monthly that document and compare vehicle costs for your Sheriff’s Department. New patrol cars are actually less expensive than buying and maintaining older ones, which is saving the citizens of this county money. Plus, these new vehicles are more economical and All-Wheel-Drive, which enables deputies to travel during adverse weather conditions.

Of course, six new cars does not completely cure the above mentioned problems, so last week the County Commissioners agreed to the purchase of three more patrol vehicles using a lease/purchase plan. This gives the Sheriff’s Department the option to buy an additional vehicle(s) annually if the budget remains equal or above the current rate. These new cars will replace some that are as much as 14 years old, with numerous vehicles having an excess of 200,000 miles on them. Once the new vehicles have arrived, the Sheriff’s Department will have another sealed-bid auction for the old cars.

Unfortunately, over the past few weeks there has been some negative items regarding numerous dog attacks and canine issues throughout the county but this week we will end on a very positive note about our furry friends. A few days ago I had a meeting with a counsellor that makes use of a “comfort dog” that is trained and certified as a therapy canine. This individual has offered the service of her and the comfort dog to help with critical and emotional situations involving children in Pulaski County. During this meeting the idea of using the dog during the weekly jail inmate counselling sessions was also discussed, and agreed upon. After a few legal hoops are concluded, the counsellor and her comfort dog will soon be rendering their voluntary services to the citizens of this County.

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
