Davison County To Hire Deputy Sheriff

Davison County To Hire Deputy Sheriff

Courtroom security was a topic of discussion at Tuesday’s Davison County Commission meeting, as the commissioners approved hiring a new deputy sheriff who will focus on security at Mitchell’s two courtrooms.  Davison County judges have expressed concern about the lack of security in courtrooms, as only unarmed jail staffers currently attend most court hearings.  Davison County Sheriff Steve Brink says the new position, which will cost around $80,000 in its first year for wages, equipment, and training, will focus on courtroom security.  Sheriff Brink says the new hire, if not already certified, will need to be certified as a deputy sheriff.  There are 12 to 14 days of court per month in Davison County.
