New Jefferson County deputy sworn in
Last week at the courthouse Hunter Schultze was sworn in by County Clerk Connie Simmons as the newest Deputy for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. His father, retired Illinois State Police Trooper Ross Schultze, participated in the ceremony. Deputy Schultze is the fifth new hire under the lateral transfer program the Sheriff’s Office implemented last year. He will start the field training program before assuming solo patrol duties. Congratulations, Deputy Schultze!
