Former Sheriff Jim Lawson back in law enforcement

Former Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Jim Lawson is back in law enforcement. Lawson, who has spent the last two years as a shift supervisor with the Scotts Bluff County Corrections Department and dispatching Air Link at Regional West Medical Center, is spending his first day as a full time officer with the Minatare Police Department.

The 61 year old Lawson says he's as pumped up as he was when he first got into public service, something he says he missed, especially making presentations to students in school.

Lawson will be working for Minatare Police Chief Robert Regester, someone Lawson has known for years.

Lawson says he will be with Regester for the next week getting acquainted with Minatare ordinances and the community.
