The Sheriff's Office is excited to announce the beginning of a relationship with the Arapahoe County Colorado Medical Examiners Office that will now allow our deputies to get real life training that cannot be matched by merely looking at pictures in books or looking at power point presentations. Forensic Pathologist Kelly Lear-Kaul and Undersheriff Jason Showalter have been working together these ...last few weeks to arrange for our deputies to attend in progress autopsies. This training will allow our deputies to gain first hand experience in post-mortem investigations so that the first time they see this kind of evidence won't be on the scene of a crime. This will also give our deputies a better understanding of what takes place in the medial examiners office and give them a respect for what they may have to ask families to endure.  This program demonstrates the Sherman County Sheriffs Office dedication to getting the highest possible level of training for its deputies and the understanding that great education allows us to prepare for whatever challenges we may face in Sherman County. This program begins on Monday and will run until all of our deputies have attended training sessions.

On July 1, 2013 local law enforcement officers participated in a “roundup” of wanted drug offenders in the Goodland area.   The roundup was the result of an operation spanning several months.  During the operation, police officers and sheriff’s deputies worked with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to target local drug dealers.  As a result of these efforts, arrest warrants were obtained for over ...10 people.  During the roundup, officers arrested 8 different people for drug related charges.    These arrests, and the counter-drug operations that have taken place over the last several months, are part of an ongoing, cooperative effort by local and state law enforcement.  In order to address drug problems in the Goodland/ Sherman County area, the Goodland Police Department, Sherman County Sheriff’s Office, and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation are working together to target dealers in the community.  Although the roundup concluded this particular effort, these agencies will continue working together to stop drug activity in the Goodland/ Sherman County area.

Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched today to a one vehicle roll over on I70 in the construction zone west of Goodland. Thomas Rehberger of Fort Meyers Florida lost control of his 2001 Chevrolet pickup causing it to cross two lanes of traffic and go off an embankment. Both driver and passenger were transported by Northwest Kansas EMS. Drugs and alcohol are not contributing factors.
