Shoshone County Sheriff launches blog about the way things work

If you've ever wanted to get a peak behind the scenes into the inner workings of your local law enforcement agency, here's your chance.

Shoshone County Sheriff's Office launched their own blog last Friday, written by none other than Sheriff Mitch Alexander himself.

“We get a lot of questions from citizens about various aspects of our job, and most of the time they're so complicated,” said Sheriff Alexander. “It's my dream to take one of these issues every week and give my opinion on it. On why these things work and try to educate people on the happenings of the county and how the sheriff's office works.”

Sheriff Alexander says he's already come up with a list of about 40 different topics he wants to cover.

“The issues I'll write about will cover our budget, jail, communications, civil, patrol, drivers license, search and rescue and courts amongst others,” he announced in the first official blog.

The sheriff says one of the biggest frustrations he runs in to is the assumption that his resources are endless, and he hopes giving the public a look behind the curtain will help them to be a little more understanding.

“I'm really trying to educate the people that I work for,” he said. “Let them know what I'm doing what I can with what I have.”

A new topic will be posted every Friday on the Facebook pages for Shoshone County Sheriff's Office and the Shoshone News Press along with Sheriff Mitch Alexander's personal Facebook page. The sheriff will also discuss his weekly topic on local radio.
