The Howard County Sheriff's Department is getting ready for the new year and a new sheriff. Sheriff-Elect Bryan McJunkins talked to the local Rotary club on Wednesday about the transition. He said they have a great staff and offer many different services. They work closely with area fire departments and the county search and rescue team. They offer 911 services and just recently, through a grant, now have a K9 unit. Starting in January, John Eric Glidewell will be the new chief deputy and Jade Hughes will move to the Criminal Investigative Division, or CID. McJunkins said he wanted to maintain the professionalism of the department and remain transparent to county residents. The club also presented a plaque of appreciation to outgoing sheriff Butch Morris. Pictured is club president-elect Glen Lance and Sheriff Butch Morris. Photo by Jonathan Canaday.
