The Oneida County Sheriff’s office has a new chief deputy. Sheriff Grady Hartman announced today that he has selected Lieutenant Daniel Hess to fill the position. It has been vacant since March when former Chief Deputy John Sweeney retired. The Chief Deputy is second in command at the Sheriff’s office, and is in charge when the sheriff is absent.
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department is opening a new office station at an elementary school. Deputies will use a room at the Northwoods Community Elementary School as a stopping point to take care of administrative tasks. No suspects will be brought to the location. County Sheriff Grady Hartman says the new office on Highway K will help the department have a stronger presence on the west side of the county.
“We get a high call volume especially around Highway 51. And we needed a place where the officers could stop or take care of personal business.”
