Students from around Cheyenne County gathered at the Cheyenne County Courthouse to meet County Officials and to learn about the role each person plays in County Government. Students got to spend time with each official, went on tours of offices and the jail, attended presentations, and observed numerous cases in court.
Pictured is Sergeant Tony Knappen and K-9 Deputy Riggs with the Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office. Sergeant Knappen talked to students about the duties Riggs performs as well as what K-9 Training consists of. K-9 Deputy Riggs then gave students a demonstration of his drug sniffing abilities. Students also got to spend time with Sergeant Tres Falcon who provided them with information about the dangers of drugs.
Cheyenne County Government Day is sponsored by the American Legion each year. The Legion Membership believes that a well-informed citizen is a well-rounded citizen for his or her community.
The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office, along with other County and State agencies serving Cheyenne County, gathered to recognize Deputy Zach Goodrich for 15 years of dedicated service with the Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office. Deputy Goodrich is one of the hardest working, and most dedicated, individuals in Law Enforcement. During his 15 year career Zach has not only served as a Deputy Sheriff, but has also taken on extra duties during his time here including serving in a supervisory role, field training officer, investigator, range officer, armorer, SWAT and other training and mentoring roles. Deputy Goodrich has also been awarded the Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office lifesaver award.
On behalf of Sheriff Frerichs, the entire Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office staff, and especially the citizens of Cheyenne County, thank you for your service over the last 15 years and we look forward to many more!
We would also like to recognize, and thank, Zach's family for their understanding, and support, as he watches over our community. The strongest people in law enforcement are often not the people that wear the badge, they are the people that stand behind those that choose this noble path.
The Cheyenne County Veteran Service Office open house November 9th, 2023. The event was held in recognition of it's new location and Previous Veteran Service Officer Ron Gusman. The open house was an opportunity for the public to see the offices since they were moved from the county courthouse building.
Ron Gusman lived a life of service. Gusman was drafted after high school and served as an MP in Saigon, Vietnam. After service in the U.S. Army, he returned home and worked for the Nebraska State Patrol, retiring after 33 years of service as a sergeant. He then served as the Cheyenne County VSO for 13 years. A plaque has been mounted to the building in memory of Gusman's service.
The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office is happy to announce their newest arrival. Mason will be heading to the National Law Enforcement Training Facility in Grand Island, NE, right after the first of the year to become a certified Deputy for Cheyenne County. Until then he will be following, learning and observing our Deputies to get a jump start in his training. If you see him out and about, wish him luck and a speedy 16 weeks of training!
