Our little holiday treat is bringing back our Know Your Deputy videos! It's been a little bit, but we really enjoy helping our community members get to meet our deputies. For our reintroduction, we're starting with Skyler Hinton. Hinton is a road deputy, and also the partner of our new K-9, Max (who makes several cameos in this video).

Hinton shares info about his passion for sports (1:52 - he used to play football for the University of Wyoming), how Max was recruited to Harvey County (2:30), and Max living with Hinton and his family (4:13).

Technical problems are easy to recognize because you know the steps to solve them or can depend on someone else to solve them. Adaptive challenges, on the other hand, are not clearly defined.

Our deputies will be partnering with law enforcement agencies across Kansas for the annual Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign. While all traffic laws are enforced during this campaign, this initiative specifically will look to enforce seat belt laws.

This campaign starts Saturday and continues through Nov. 27. While seat belt enforcement is one component of this effort, our overarching goal is to ensure you are making it safely to visit your friends and family this Thanksgiving. Buckling up saves lives!

Ninth Judicial District Chief Judge Marilyn Wilder affirmed the oath of office for two Harvey County elected officials Tuesday following the certification of the general election.

Becky Fields was sworn in as Harvey County treasurer. Fields returns to the treasurer's office after previously serving a 36-year tenure with the County, including 17 as county treasurer.

Heather Figger was sworn in as Harvey County attorney. Figger had previously been appointed this past December to serve as county attorney. Prior to that, she was an assistant attorney for the County.

Thank you to Becky and Heather for serving the citizens of Harvey County.Photos from Harvey County Government's post

The 2022 general election for Harvey County was canvassed and certified today. More info ⬇️ ... See moreSee less

The Harvey County Board of Canvassers met today to conduct the vote canvass for the 2022 general election.

The official, certified Harvey County results can be found here: results.enr.clarityelections.com/KS/Harvey/115750/web.307039/#/summary

Statewide results can be found here: ent.sos.ks.gov/kssos_ent.html

There were 12,989 ballots counted in this election. With 23,642 registered voters in Harvey County, that equated to a 54.9 percent voter turnout.

The election canvass board reviewed 159 provisional and four challenged ballots, of which 117 ballots were counted. Examples of provisional ballots can be people that had a name change or moved within the county but hadn't updated their registration info yet. The challenged ballots are advance ballots that were returned without a signature. We try to contact the voter to have them correct the deficiency, but were unsuccessful for those four ballots.

The canvass board was comprised of Harvey County Commissioners Randy Hague, Don Schroeder and George "Chip" Westfall.

Thank you to everyone that voted in this election cycle, and to all of our poll workers and staff that helped facilitate our local election!

Our First Responders Holiday Helpers initiative is still going strong. Every little bit helps! We're collecting financial donations into December that we'll use to provide boxes full of staple food items for families in need here in Harvey County. Our local first responders partner with Dillons to purchase the items and package the boxes to distribute in our community.

You can make a financial contribution by bringing it to the Sheriff's Office or Newton Police Department, 120 E. Seventh St. in Newton. Checks can be made to First Responders Holiday Helpers.

We certainly know not everyone has the means to make a financial contribution right now. Even just helping spread the word about the cause helps a ton. This is a favorite tradition for us, and we only get to do it because of the incredible community support this program receives.Our First Responders Holiday Helpers initiative is still going strong.
