  • 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: 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.

 “The Sheriff’s View” (#131)

Gas prices are lowering, shopping malls and stores are busier, and parents are walking around wondering how the summer vacation passed so quickly. These are all signs that it’s once again time for the school year to begin, and I have to agree with many that I have recently spoken with about summer passing so quickly.

This week most schools throughout Pulaski County will be back in session, which means many things. First, motorists need to plan accordingly due to the increase of vehicle traffic we will all see, resulting in delays coming to and from destinations. Pedestrian traffic will also increase from the many students that walk back and forth to school. A suggestion for motorists would be to leave at least ten minutes sooner if your destination route takes you through a town, or school zone.

I will add that law enforcement agencies will be out in greater numbers during school zone times, helping to remind motorists to drive more attentive and within the speed limits. At times officers can be somewhat lenient with speed limits but this will not be the case if one is caught speeding through a school zone. For the protection of all children throughout your community, traffic laws must be strictly adhered to in school zones and these are “no tolerance” areas when it comes to tickets vs. verbal warnings. In other words, if you are caught violating traffic laws in school zones, you can receive a written invitation to pay a fine or visit a judge.

Along the lines of school safety, each year there are numerous criminal incidents throughout the country that occur on school busses. One topic relating to school bus incidents involve adults who enter a bus without authorization and initiate a conflict with a driver or student. These can be severe, as we saw two years ago in Alabama where an individual entered a school bus, shot the driver and kidnapped a student. In order to deter or prevent school bus incidents, many states throughout the nation (including Missouri) have enacted laws that prevent unauthorized persons from entering a bus. Unauthorized persons relate to about all individuals who do not work for the school system. So please, see your child to the bus but do not attempt to enter. Trespass of a School bus is a Class A misdemeanor, which can result in jail time.

On Monday, the long awaited program for putting Naloxone (Narcan) on patrol with deputies has arrived. Beginning tomorrow, most County patrol cars will be stocked with the drug Narcan, which is used to treat individuals who have overdosed on an opiate-based drug. This project began last year resulting from individuals and groups who helped form the Pulaski County Coalition against Drugs (formerly Heroin Action Committee), among other concerned citizens. These individuals/groups met with Pulaski County State Representative Steve Lynch, who then authored a House bill that would authorize first responders to administer Narcan to overdose patients. This proposed legislation flew through the House and Senate, and was signed into law last fall. After months of planning and training, Narcan goes on patrol this week in Pulaski County. I might add that your sheriff’s department will be the first one in the State of Missouri to carry Narcan. A full media story will be released this week.

I won’t go into a lot of detail because it would bore some readers, but the statewide Sheriff’s conference went well this week. Sheriffs are mandated by State Statute to attend this sessions twice a year, and with good reason. Numerous topics of business were discussed, debated and shared among the group. Many items pertained to laws, procedures and government mandates that have recently been passed down to the law enforcement arena. In addition to the above, numerous guest presenters gave training classes to attendees, relating to topics that Sheriffs are faced with on a continual basis, or to help prepare for or prevent futures incidents that have been sweeping the nation in recent years. This was one of the most informative and interesting conferences that I have attended over the years, and I am definitely looking forward to next year’s conference.

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
