Haney Appointed Interim Potter County Sheriff

Captain Roger Haney will take over Mike Shumate's duties at the Potter County Sheriff's Office.  He is also the captain of the Potter County Detention Center. His title for now is Interim Sheriff.

County Commissioners will vote a week from Friday on whether to keep Haney in this position.

He says if they approve him, he will accept the position.  He plans on working with commissioners to keep in line with the goals of the county.

He also plans on working with the staff here at the Sheriff's office to make sure everyone is on the same page.

He will not, however, appoint a deputy sheriff.

And as for the detention center and its operations, Haney says that issue will be discussed at a later date.
