Airport Security Detail
In 2003, the office of the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff assumed full responsibility for all law enforcement services at the West Nebraska Regional Airport in Scottsbluff.
Deputies spend a minimum of 250 hours each month providing safety and security for passengers and visitors alike.
Court Security Detail
Due to increased concerns for safety and security, our Court Detail is handled by two full-time employees.
Mike McCoy is a certified Deputy Sheriff. He patrols throughout the courthouse complex and attends numerous court proceedings.
Wendy Lacy operates the magnetometer and video surveillance system at the security entrance station located in the basement of the courthouse. This duty is imposed under the authority of Nebraska statute 23-1705.
Deputies "spot check" these buildings when either Mr. McCoy or Ms. Lacy are unavailable or security is required in more than one courtroom at the same time.
