After three months on the job the new Putnam County Sheriff is getting use to his role.
Putnam County Sheriff Mike Chandler was the featured speaker at the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce. Sheriff Chandler was elected to serve as Putnam County Sheriff in the November election. Before Chandler was elected to the role of sheriff, he served as the county deputy. This is Chandlers first time elected into the role of sheriff.
He says for the past few months he has been working on learning the role of sheriff, and has been trying to keep everything running along smoothly. He says he has been working on having a more friendly sheriff's office, and hopes to eventually have the opportunity to increase staffing levels.
Chandler says he does not see any major changes happening to the Putnam County Sheriffs Office.
