Sheriff shows consolidation report to Mayors

Sheriff Mark Overman and Chief Deputy Jim Gaspers met with Mayors Ed Mayo of Gering, Kent Greenwalt of Terrytown, Randy Meininger of Scottsbluff, County Commission Chairman Mark Masterton and members of their senior staff on Friday, April 05, 2013.

The meeting involved an overview and discussion of a plan requested by the mayors that would result in the consolidation of law enforcement services. The elected officials stated that they intend to discuss this issue at their next scheduled council/board meetings.

The report was the result of discussions Overman and Gaspers had with members of agencies with a similar number of employees that would be required under a countywide law enforcement agency. Overman said the report included information on budgets, equipment, personnel, schedules and more.
