Lewis & Clark County holds community address on police practices

Lewis and Clark County leaders came together Wednesday to answer some of the public’s questions about policing in the county.

The county commission and Sheriff Leo Dutton held a community address, aimed at giving people a better idea of how the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office operates.

Commissioner Susan Good Geise said they’ve heard from many people since the start of the nationwide protests that followed George Floyd’s death in police custody in Minneapolis. She said they organized Wednesday’s event to give the public a better idea of LCSO’s current practices, so everyone can be on the same page before any discussions about possible additional action.
