Jefferson R-7 in talks with sheriff’s office on south zone substation location

(Jefferson County) The Jefferson R-7 School District has reached out to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in interest of having the sheriff’s office place a south zone substation on the school district’s campus.

Jefferson schools Superintendent Clint Johnston says having a sheriff’s office substation on campus would be greatly welcomed.

Having a substation on a school campus is not uncommon for the sheriff’s office as the east zone office located on one.

The sheriff’s office is looking for a new south zone location after recently leaving their previous spot on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus.
