June 09, 2021 LCSO found an adult Armadillo road killed on the side of U.S. 36 east of Chillicothe.  We had not seen any of these animals in this area prior to this.  Just another creature and potential hazard motorists, especially motorcyclist need to be on the look out for.

Here is a photo from MDC.mo.gov of an armadillo and a link to read about them from Missouri Department of Conservation:

FAKE News on CCW and Wearing Covid Masks

(photo courtesy Anankblm and freedigitalphotos.net)

 

There has been some fake news on social media and rumors circulating about if you carry concealed that you are breaking the law if you are wearing a mask for Covid reasons.

This IS NOT True in Missouri!  It is fake news and a scare tactic.  

You are perfectly legal to carry concealed while wearing your mask for Covid reasons as compared to planning an armed robbery. 

Please stay safe and healthy.

Information Received on Amendment 5 and Felons with Firearms

Missouri Supreme Court: Amendment 5 doesn’t give nonviolent felons gun rights

February 9, 2016 by Mike Lear

The state Supreme Court has ruled a 2014 constitutional amendment strengthening Missourians’ rights to own firearms does not allow nonviolent felons to have guns.

 

The Missouri Supreme Court

Three men charged with being felons in possession of firearms had challenged those charges, arguing the passage by voters of Amendment 5 in 2014 negated state law against nonviolent felons owning guns. That amendment declared the right to keep and bear arms “unalienable” and subjected laws restricting gun rights to a higher legal standard of evaluation. Lower courts had ruled in favor of those individuals.

Attorneys for those individuals argued the language of Amendment 5, which excluded a, “convicted violent felon,” meant only violent felons could not possess guns, and that courts would have to make a determination whether a felony was “violent.”

The Supreme Court ruled 5-2 in both cases that the constitution does not bar the legislature from keeping violent felons from having guns. In one of the cases it additionally ruled that the constitution as it existed before Amendment 5 applies to cases of crimes committed before that amendment was adopted.

Both cases were sent back to the lower courts they came out of, so the cases against the three men charged with being felons in possession of firearms may continue.

Quote for the Day

Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field.

 

 
 
Something to think about.  SC

Consider Joining the Missouri Sheriffs' Association

Take an Active Role in Fighting Crime- Join the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association

Effective crime prevention requires the support of a partnership between the sheriff’s office and the community.

The MSA is a non-profit organization with a mission to support the office of sheriff and the Constitution through legislative efforts, training and technical assistance. Everyone is eligible – you don’t have to be in law enforcement to join. In fact, 90 percent of all members are businesses owners or non-law enforcement residents of the community who want to do what they can to support their local law enforcement.

Membership fees are used for a variety of projects.

Sheriffs are mandated to have at least 20 hours of classroom instruction each calendar year relating to the operations of the sheriff's office. The MSA, in place since 1945, helps them accomplish that by annually offering training conferences and seminars that focus on a wide range of topics – everything from how to make schools safer to how to reduce jail liability. The MSA also offers training for jail administrators, chief deputies and other personnel who work in those offices, regularly holding seminars, both online and in classrooms.

The MSA operates a premier law enforcement training academy with satellite offices in 13 different locations throughout the state. As a full service, state-licensed training academy, Missouri Sheriffs’ Association Training Academy offers basic peace officer training, continuing education and grant-funded training, graduating more than 31,000 Missouri peace officers in the past four years and again ranking No. 1 in the state as to total number of basic academy graduates per year for the fourth year in a row. Each year, the MSA provides $1,000 scholarships to 16 college-bound Missouri high school seniors who intend to pursue a criminal justice career and who will be attending a Missouri college or university.

Need more reasons to join? The MSA has the only statewide crime victims unit that serves victims in every county throughout the state. To date, advocates have served more than 600 victims, helping them and their families deal with the after-effects of violent crime, including accompanying them to court and finding needed resources.

The MSA is also strongly involved in monitoring legislation and then acting as a voice for the sheriffs when bills are introduced that will affect their office and the communities they serve. The MSA helped fight – and win – the battle to keep individuals’ personal information confidential when applying for a concealed carry permit. The association also keeps sheriffs up to date with the latest research and technology, writing grants that will allow them to purchase products and systems needed to provide effective law enforcement.

Honorary members receive membership cards for their wallets, decals for their vehicles and copies of The Missouri Sheriff magazine, all for just $25.00. As a $50.00 business member they also receive a plaque to display in their businesses. Business owners who want to further support their local sheriffs can advertise in the MSA magazine, the only one of its kind dedicated to the office of sheriff.

If you value honesty, hard work and personal responsibility, core values adopted by the MSA, take action now. Become a member today!

For more information visit the MSA website at www.mosheriffs.com or click HERE for MSA brochure and Membership or HERE for History Book Information and Membership.


Apprehended Fugitive now in Federal Court

Interesting article in the St. Joseph News Press on the Iowa fugitive apprehended here in January at Poosey Park near the Panthers Den.  Appears Mr. Graham is headed to Federal Court instead of Court in the State of Iowa.  These Federal charges carry a potentially more significant sentence.

Typically State Courts withdraw any charges they have when a case is handed over to the U.S. Attorney for Federal prosecution.

Deputy Leadbetter Attends Advanced Rifle Training

 Nicholas Leadbetter

Deputy Nicholas Leadbetter

 

For 2 days last week, Deputy Nicholas Leadbetter attended the Remington Defense/ Bushmaster Patrol Rifle Armorer School, hosted by the Leewood Kansas Police Department. At that training Deputy Leadbetter was instructed on how to better service and maintain our patrol rifles. This course went in depth on how to construct and deconstruct a patrol rifle in various platforms.

Our patrol rifles are an investment and a tool that protects and enhances the safety of our community and officers. Deputy Leadbetter is now assigned the task of ensuring these firearms are running correctly and will continue to run correctly for years to come. Deputy Leadbetter will be able to repair and replace parts without shipping the firearms to a manufacturer, which is both expensive and time consuming.

On May 13, 2015 the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office mailed 500 notices to the next prospective jury panel.   By law the Circuit Clerk of the County (Brenda Wright) is obligated to obtain/prepare a list of the prospective jurors for each term. Then the sheriff is required to submit that notice to each person and we do this by U.S. Mail.

It might be a good day to buy a lottery ticket or donate some extra cash to your Church or charity.

Deputy Perez                  Deputy Bagley

 

The week of April 13, 2015 Deputy Will Perez and Deputy Dave Bagley attended a very in-depth training for one full week at the Missouri State Highway Patrol Training Academy in Jefferson City. The deputies received advanced training in the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC).

This training included both day and night classes on emergency vehicle operations on all types of roadways in various types of conditions with different types of patrol vehicles.

We are proud that Deputy Perez and Deputy Bagley attended this course. Both officers reported back they had learned a great deal about vehicle and emergency vehicle operations. All the LCSO road patrol deputies receive advanced driver training to maintain a higher level of professionalism and responsibility to our community.

Potential Scam Involving Livingston County Offices

 

***IMPORTANT NOTICE***

***POTENTIAL SCAM WARNING***

Kelly Christopher, Recorder of Deeds and Steve Ripley Assessor

 Warn Property Owners to be Wary of Mail Offers

For Copies of Deeds and Property Assessment Information

Once again another company is trying taking advantage of Livingston County citizens.  Livingston County Recorder of Deeds Kelly Christopher and Livingston County Assessor Steve Ripley urge county residents to be wary of mail offers to provide copies of legal documents.

Local citizens contacted Kelly Christopher, Recorder of Deeds, about a private company’s offer to provide copies of deeds and property assessment profiles to home owners for an excessive fee. The California based company has mailed the offer to residents of Livingston County.   The Recorders’ and Assessors’ Associations of Missouri have previously contacted the Missouri Attorney General’s office regarding these type of offers from companies.

Property owners in the area have received a letter offering a copy of their grant deed and property assessment profile for $83.00 or more.   These companies simply contact local offices to obtain the documents then turn around and mail it to the homeowner while charging them the higher fees. 

Christopher said most property owners obtain their original property deed when their property is purchased. If additional copies are needed, they may be obtained directly from the County.  County fees are $1 per page; most property deeds are no more than one or two pages long.  Property assessment information is available for 25₵ per copy.

"I am concerned about companies trying to take advantage of our citizens by not being truthful.   If anyone receives one of these letters and would like a copy of their deed or assessment information, I urge them to ignore it and contact the Recorder’s or Assessor’s Office", stated Christopher.

For information or to obtain a copy of your property deed or assessment information, you may visit the Livingston County Courthouse at 700 Webster St., Chillicothe, Mo, or call the Recorder’s Office at (660) 646-8000 ext 6 or the Assessor’s Office at (660) 646-8000 ext 2.

Used Patrol Car Added to Fleet

 

patrol car front side view     patrol car side view

These are pictures of the most recent patrol car we added to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Road Patrol.  This is a 2012 Dodge Charger Police Package which was purchased in March 2014 and put into service in May 2014 after being properly equipped.

The used vehicle was bought from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and had approximately 55,000 miles at the time of purchase.  We have added the necessary equipment and assigned this patrol vehicle to Deputy Chris Mueller as the primary driver.

The LCSO road patrol are assigned vehicles as we are a small organization and depend on all our road patrol when a serious emergency occurs which provides for a much timelier and effective response to any situation.

The LCSO had a demonstrated need for the newer patrol vehicle due to excessive mileage and mechanical issues.

The used MSHP Patrol Car cost approximately $15,750 but $8,999 of that cost was covered by a Local Law Enforcement Block Grant we had received.


Deputy Attended Firearms Instructor Training

 Chris Mueller

Deputy Chris Mueller

 

Deputy Chris Mueller recently attended a 2 week training session at the Missouri State Highway Patrol Training Academy on Firearms Instruction.

 

Deputy Muller had to perform at high levels of efficiency and accuracy with handguns, rifles, and shotguns.  Additionally he studied the roles and responsibilities of firearms instruction for law enforcement.

 

Deputy Mueller will not only provide instruction and certification training for the officers at the Livingston County Sheriffs’ Office.  Chris will also assist other agencies and will be the firearms instructor for the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association Training Academy which is hosted by the Livingston County Sheriffs’ Office in Chillicothe beginning August 07, 2014.  By having an in-house firearms instructor it will also save us money from having to pay for individual officer certifications every year.

 

Chris has been a deputy sheriff with the LCSO since 2010.  We are proud of his accomplishments and the work he does for the citizens of Livingston County.

Deputy Attends Police Chaplain Training

Jacob Peterson

Deputy Jacob Peterson

 

I recently attended a week of training focused on helping
chaplains/pastors understand the culture of Law Enforcement, and the challenge of being a chaplain in that culture. Along with 30-35
others, some pastors, officers, and retired officers, we discussed
various aspects of the job. We discussed things such as the history of
American Law Enforcement, history of SWAT, and a chaplain's place in both. We discussed the Chaplains place at a crime scene, during
officer involved shootings, and deaths. We also discussed a chaplains
place during and after an active shooter situation or critical
incident. A very important aspect to this training was gaining a large
network of other chaplains who have active programs set up in their
agencies.


My goal for the near future is to set up a program that involves local pastors and lay people, that will include training, input, and a system for things such as critical incidents and their place in that recovery. Without a system put in place, there will be chaos. Prior to this employment, I will work with the office command staff to set up a General Order/Policy manual for the chaplain program. This will be done with great help from local agencies, the National Sheriff's Association, and those who I attended training with last week.

 

 


Help Brother Sheriffs

I want to share with you the following email I received from Sheriff Todd Garrison in Dona Ana County, New Mexico on his concern for the safety of citizens and reduction of protection on over one half a million acres of ground that President Obama is signing into Federal protection.  Please read and let Congress and the U.S. Senators hear your thoughts.

Thank you,

Steve Cox


 

 

I was just informed, that the President of the United States will sign a bill next week making over 500,000 thousand Acres in Dona Ana County a National Monument, called the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument/Wilderness. This is the bill,that Law Enforcement has fought for over eight years now because it does not give the Local law enforcement any confidence that we will be able to effectively do our job of protecting the public’s safety.

 

Everyone believes that Border patrol is going to do that job and I can assure you local law enforcement does support Border Patrol in the job they do. However, if a criminal, drug or human smuggler, gets past border patrol (which they do all the time)and kills, rapes, or commits any kind of crime, all this now falls onto the local law enforcement to take care of not Border Patrol. This is the primary reason local law enforcement has fought this bill, as it stands now we have access to this area and can effectively patrol. If the Monument Bill goes into effect there will be roads closed making it very difficult to effectively patrol even for the Border Patrol. We have asked that this bill include language that will not hamper the ability of local law enforcement to effectively patrol it but nothing has been changed. We have only been told we will have access if there is a need to respond, this will not include the need to patrol and keep criminals away.

 

It is my belief, that the only people who will truly gain anything from this monument will be the criminals/cartels, that will use the Monument/Wilderness area along the US/Mexico Border, in the same way it has been used in every other state, which has not been good and has not protected the lands the way they thought it would. Only law abiding citizens will obey laws; the criminal element will benefit most from this Monument/Wilderness area just as they have in other states. It’s a shame that we are so willing to give up the safety of this country in such a way as this, all in the name of protecting lands for the future use of our children. I believe these kinds of Monument/Wilderness Border areas have clearly show us all, they do not protect the land as these Legislatures have promised, but clearly allow the land to be abused in such a way that our children will never be able to enjoy them. This country and its leaders are asleep at the wheel or they are being bought off by the Cartels that will use these lands in such a way as to further erode the safety of our counties, or states and this Country we have all sworn to protect. I cannot believe the people that sit by and let these things continue to happen, do they really still believe all the lies they are being told? Are we really that naïve after all we have seen along our border?

 

I am asking that you please notify all law enforcement and ask them to stop this action before it happens. Please have them reach out to all State and National representatives they work with all of which have sworn to protect this country and ask them to stop the President from signing this action into law without further studies. This land is already being protected as a wilderness study area and with that comes great protections for the land as to how it can be used but it does not keep law enforcement off of it by closing all the existing roadways. We are talking about over 500,000 acres of land in the middle of the desert. Yes, there are some great areas within this proposed Monument/Wilderness that we need to protect, but to encompass all this land in one very large space will only create a pathway for the criminals to utilize it, to further their criminal activity, making it much more dangerous for the people that wish to enjoy these areas for what they are being set aside for.

Hospital Donates Pedometers to Bishop Hogan School

 

 Jordan Ferguson and student

Matt Wenzel at Hedrick Medical Center donated 80 pedometers to Bishop Hogan Memorial School for their“Get Healthy, One Step at a Time” Project.  The School is revamping their walking track to encourage more walking at the school and in the neighborhood.  In Livingston County, there is a high percentage of residents dying from heart disease.  The proposal is a way to change the future risks for students.  The pedometers will be used by the students and staff to track daily steps and to encourage an increase in steps taken.  The Picture is of Jordan Ferguson, Marketing and Public Relations Director for Hedrick Med. Center and student Allison Higgins.  He is showing her how to use the pedometer.
