On August 17th the Wright County Sheriff’s office along with Mountain Grove Police Department participated in the Kids Fest Program at the Tri-County Fairgrounds. We set up a booth and handed out coloring books, pencils and safety information.

We also did Child Identification Cards. These cards have the child’s Name, Date of Birth, Height, Weight, Hair and Eye color with their parents or Guardian name. Their picture is put on the ID and the info is laminated and given to the parent.We printed 37 kids today. We enjoy the kids. This helps the kids not to be afraid of Law Enforcement. Thanks to the parents that stopped by our booth.

I want to thank Chief Danny Bledsoe, Officer Sonny Byerley, Chief Deputy Mike Foreman and his son Dakota and my wife Samantha Adler for helping out.

News From Wright County Sheriff’s Office

Greetings, from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office. It has been a busy year with several calls. We are at 2159 calls for service so far. Here is a breakdown of some of the calls we have had.
Checked on 32 Abandoned Vehicles, 59 Burglar Alarms, 79 Animal Complaints, 24 Assaults, 21 Burglaries, 79 Domestics, 61 911 Hang up calls, 121 Law Enforcement Agency Assist, 319 Court Papers served, 393 Traffic Violations, 103 Well Being Checks and 70 thefts. This is just some of the calls we responded to.
I want to talk about the Officer involved shooting resulting in Deputy McCleary being shot in the leg by the suspect. On July 5th, five deputies from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office, two Missouri State Highway Patrol officers and one Mountain Grove officer went to a residence Southeast in Norwood off of Highway ZZ to execute a search warrant. Officers surrounded the house and observed the suspect in the yard they ordered him to stop and he took off running.
Officers continuously told him to stop and the subject then pulled a weapon. He was told numerous times to put the weapon down the suspect began firing at the officers. Officers returned fire. Deputy JJ McCleary was shot in the leg by the suspect. The suspect was fatally shot.
Deputy McCleary was losing a lot of blood, with quick thinking of the officers they applied a tourniquet to help stop the bleeding. Deputy McCleary was transported by air ambulance to hospital in Springfield.
I have been in law enforcement for nearly 32 years and in the 32 years it seems to me that it is getting worse and worse with the violence we heard in Kansas City and St Louis now it’s in Springfield and it’s drifting this way.
As you remember last year Trooper Crewse was shot, when he was checking on a vehicle in the road Northeast of Mansfield. He since has recovered from a gunshot wound to the head.
Also in July 2018 Mountain Grove Officer BJ Adler was in pursuit of a suspect wanted and the subject shot towards officer Adler’s patrol car. The suspect was apprehended two days later after a short foot pursuit.
August 3rd there was a fund raiser for Deputy McCleary at Shetlers. The place was packed with people supporting Deputy McCleary. A good time was had by all. I want to thank everyone that attended this event. Lots of people thank me and other Law Enforcement Officers for our job. It’s great to live in a place where Officers are thought of. Deputy McCleary is one blessed man.
I am a firm believer that someone up above had his hand on every officer that day of the shooting. Until next time thank you for your support. God Bless.
Sheriff Adler

Weather Radio’s

A little about NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio

NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio is a nationwide network of nearly 940 transmitters which continuously broadcast warnings, watches, forecasts, and other emergency messages, 24 hours a day.  You can think of it as your own personal indoor tornado siren. Here in southern Missouri, we provide the programming for thirteen transmitters. (See map above)

 As a key component of the nationwide modernization of the National Weather Service, we have initiated NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio.  Forecasts and statements will automatically and instantaneously go straight from the NWS forecaster out over the airwaves, eliminating any delays in broadcasting critical information.

 Yes, the voice is noticeably different.  We have traded personality for speed, and to free up the broadcasters so that they can spend more time analyzing and detecting hazardous weather. This will lead to enhanced services as we strive to meet our main mission…the protection of life and property of the citizens of the Ozarks.

 The NWS office gets rather busy during severe weather, so by automatically broadcasting using the synthesized voice, the staff member previously just sitting in front of a microphone can now complete more important tasks such as talking with severe weather spotters and answering public calls as to the whereabouts of reported severe storms.

What is NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio?

NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio is a service of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) of the Department of Commerce. NOAA weather radio provides continuous broadcasts of the latest weather information directly from the National Weather Service offices across the country. Weather messages are taped and run in a cycle lasting on an average of four to six minutes, and are updated frequently throughout the day.

When severe weather occurs, the routine broadcasting will be interrupted to provide the listener with frequent updates on severe weather warnings or statements for your area. When a severe weather warning is issued and you are within 40 miles of the transmitter, a weather tone will alert on specially built receivers, with warning and safety information following directly after the tone. With the new Specific Area Message Encoder (SAME) weather radios, you can program your weather radio to only receive warnings for the county you program into the radio.

How can I listen to NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio?

NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio broadcasts are made on one of seven high-band FM frequencies ranging from 162.40 to 162.55 MHz. These frequencies are usually not found on the average radio, but require a specially built receiver to pick up the broadcasts.

Where can I get a NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio?

NOAA All Hazards Weather Radios can be purchased at many electronics stores nationwide. Prices will most likely vary from location to location, and will also depend on the type of radio you buy. Most receivers can be purchased for around $50 or less. Be sure that NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio broadcasts can be received in your area! New SAME units will cost around $80.
