New sheriff is getting down to business

Stark County’s new sheriff was sworn in on Wednesday and he said his first day on the job was a busy one.

“Several calls the first day. Some were congratulations and some were questions about old cases. . .directions that they want to go with certain things, ” said Corey Lee, Stark County Sheriff.

However, on day two Sheriff Lee wanted to get down to business.

The new sheriff said he’s currently working on getting the sheriff’s office fully staffed, as they currently have three open positions.

Lee, who is a former Dickinson police officer, said he is also working on implementing some programs he learned over at the police department.

One is selective patrolling, where officers focus on a certain violation every month

This month (January) they will be focusing on car registration violations.

The other is school zone patrolling, which he wants his office to put an emphasis on.

Sheriff Lee said he is still exploring the possibility of bringing a K-9 unit to the department, because prior to being elected he managed the K-9 unit for the Dickinson Police Department.
