Scott County Sheriff Randy Shores returned home from the recent summer conference of the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Association meeting. The meeting was held August 4-7 in Rogers, AR.
Shores said the conferences are extremely helpful in that they get to visit one on one with sheriffs across the state. “We talk, and if you have a problem, you can hear how they (other sheriffs) have handled things. Of course, bigger counties, they may have the same problems, just more of them.”
In the summer conference, Shores said they learned about changes in law, jail standards, mental health, and new marijuana laws.
The association hosts a conference bi-annually, and will hold the next meeting in the winter, February 2-5, 2020 in Little Rock, Arkansas.
