The next big questions for Wells County is who will be the next sheriff?

The interim county sheriff, Randi Suckut says that the courthouse did advertising for the position.

They have 4 applicants that have been interviewed and two of those are moving on to background checks.

In order to be the sheriff, you must reach all the qualifications including having a law enforcement background and be a resident of Wells County for 30 days.

Suckut says that they hope to appoint a new sheriff soon and that sheriff will finish out Lawson’s term.

“We have somebody hired to do the backgrounds on two of the individuals that we interviewed and which is a little more than what was done before. My best hope is that we get somebody on within a month.” said Randi Suckut, Interim Acting Sheriff.

Wells County is working on making random drug tests a requirement in the workplace.
