Sheriff Montagne wants to remind all the kids to be safe, have fun and Happy Halloween.

On October 22nd Sheriff Montagne attended a wellness fair at the Hutchinson Community College. Sheriff Montagne had a booth presenting educational materials on the dangers of drugs and impaired driving. Students got to do some Standard Field Sobriety Testing while wearing goggles that simulate what an impaired driver would see.

Make sure you drive sober or you’ll get pulled over this Halloween.

Words of wisdom from Captain Hoffman. Captain Hoffman gave his keys for his patrol car to Deputy Racines.

One of Captain Hoffman's favorite Law Enforcement memories was volunteering at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah. There, he worked at Soldier Hollow, which hosted the Biathlon, Nordic Combined, and Cross Country Skiing events. (Note: No bears were harmed in the staging of this picture.)

Deputies Racines and Achilles made time to go trick or treating in Canton tonight.

The McPherson County Sheriff's Office used to have a team at the Madathon in the early to mid 1980's. Captain Hoffman was always a staple at the events.

Here is another picture of Captain Hoffman towards the beginning of his career. This was from approximately 1978.

As a Sheriff's Deputy, we are required to maintain a certain proficiency at the firearms range. Some days, however, your range scores just stink. Captain Hoffman is seen here with his service revolver in the mid to late 1980's. It was a Smith and Wesson Model 686, .357 Caliber revolver.

Here, Captain Hoffman is conducting a training in the mid-1980's on how to properly take crime-scene photographs.

Captain Hoffman helped out with trainings over his career with the McPherson County Sheriff's Office. In these pictures, Captain Hoffman and Captain Anderson are instructing the rest of the Deputies in how to properly conduct high-risk car stops.
