Continuing discussions were held on the subject of an additional part-time deputy during the regular meeting of the Palo Alto County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

"I am an elected official and I know that coming in here and asking for an additional deputy does not make me popular," Palo Alto County Sheriff Lynn Schultes said. "I feel that I have a responsibility and a duty to protect the county." Statistically, Palo Alto County is busier than other counties and according to Schultes, we are held hostage to the criminal element not only the communications center but also the jail.

"We don't know from year-to-year what the crime rate will be," Schultes said.

"Is your request for an additional deputy to have more on the road or to relieve your deputies," Supervisor Roger Faulstick questioned.
