MORRIS -- On Tuesday, the Stevens County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 to approve an employment agreement for a new chief deputy sheriff that will be filled by current deputy Tom Loew.


In the past, three sheriff’s deputies rotated the responsibilities of the chief deputy. This rotation could sometimes cause confusion about the chain of command when the sheriff was not available, said Sheriff Jason Dingman.
