New Pulaski sheriff plans weekly meetings with area residents

DIXON/RICHLAND, Mo. (Jan. 25, 2013) — Want to meet your new sheriff?

Beginning next week in Dixon and continuing for the next month in other communities, Sheriff Ron Long will be meeting local residents who want “to speak with him about ‘any’ law enforcement topic or matter of community concern.”

Long, who was elected in November and took office at the end of January, will be at the Dixon Senior Citizens Center at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31. The following week, he’ll be at First Baptist Church of Richland on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the same time.

The county has a half-dozen townships. After an initial visit to each township, Long will schedule one meeting per month, he said in a prepared statement issued Friday. In addition to Dixon, which is in Union Township, and Richland, which is in Liberty Township, the county’s other townships are Cullen Township, which includes Waynesville and St. Robert and runs east to the unincorporated village of Devil’s Elbow; Tavern Township, which includes Crocker; Roubidoux Township, which is the area south of Laquey running along Highway 17 on the west end of Fort Leonard Wood; and Piney Township, which is the far southeastern corner of Pulaski County centered on the unincorporated village of Big Piney.

The full schedule for the local visits hasn’t yet been announced but will be included in Long’s weekly “Sheriff’s View” column, he said.

“In being the Pulaski County Sheriff, I want everyone to know this is their community and policing their homes, businesses and roadways is a joint endeavor with law enforcement agencies,” Long said in his Friday announcement. “It has been proven over-and-over throughout the nation that when concerned citizens have a good working relationship with their law enforcement agencies, crime rates are lowered. I am not asking for our citizens to be continually patrolling our county and looking for criminals. My goal is to have an open and friendly relationship with my community where they get to know and continually trust me and our deputies, and are comfortable in relaying information and concerns to us. It is important that our citizens understand the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department welcomes and encourages community involvement.”
