  • 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” (#132)

Last week marked the conclusion of two long awaited projects; one was the implementation of the “Narcan on Patrol” project, where State Representative Steven Lynch presented the first Narcan kit to one of your Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department deputies. I won’t go into a lot details about this, due to the great job that our media sources have done informing the community about the project.

The second project was the completion of an extensive criminal investigation involving the financial exploitation of several elderly individuals in our community. You may have seen a featured story last week with one media source, and I will be releasing a full story early this week with a few details about these new crimes. It is an ongoing endeavor for this agency to spread the message to the community about the many different fraud schemes that criminals undertake to deprive individuals out of their finances. The sad part of this story is these fraudsters target the elderly community, and through their sharp tongues or intimidating approaches are able to deprive our senior citizens out of retirement monies. My advice when confronted with someone that you are entrusting your finances with, or offering you a deal that is too good to be true, would be to consult with an attorney, financial expert or law enforcement agency, before surrendering your assets.

The ongoing effort to make the Pulaski County Jail a more modern facility continued last week with the installation of a technologically advanced and user-friendly telephone communications system. Inmates have constitutional rights when incarcerated in a penal facility, and telephone communication is one of them. I have to admit that inmate rights can encompass a long list that can be challenging at times, especially when a Sheriff has limited staffing. With this newly installed jail telephone system, inmates have additional phones to make calls to relatives, attorneys and bondsmen. This, in turn, frees up more time for the corrections staff to tend to other and more pressing duties.

Even though an inmate has certain rights when incarcerated, having carte-blanche to telephone services is not one of them and with the exception of a few initials calls, telephone calls are paid for by the inmates themselves. Also with this new system, the jail has the ability to add video conferencing, which can be used for video court arraignments and necessary conferencing with attorneys. I should add that none of the above features cost the Sheriff’s Department a penny.

I also attended two very impressive events last week, one being the graduation of 59 new Marine Corps Military Police officers on Ft. Wood. It was a great honor to speak to the group and to hear about their academy accomplishments, along with their new duty assignments to all corners of this earth. Seeing all of those young and eager law enforcement officers in my presence makes me reflect back to my rookie days, and the feelings of excitement and adventure that accompany them. New law enforcement officers initially receive months of additional training than those of decades past, and I have no reason but to believe that todays cops with be the best ever!

The second event was on Tuesday, when the Phelps County Regional Medical Center had the clinic’s grand opening in Waynesville. I enjoy seeing new additions to our community, which reflect the positive growth of this area. What a beautiful building the new clinic is, which will be offering an extensive number of medical services for our community.

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
