The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office adds a deputy to its team.

Sheriff Jeremy Floyd says the part time Animal Control Deputy is Roger Nagel. He will look for any suspicious neglect for all animals and take animal complaint calls from the community. Floyd says this is the first time the county filled this position, and it will be a great help.

Jeremy Floyd, Ottowa County Sheriff: “I’m excited and I’m looking forward to working with people in the county, and hopefully we can start curving that animal cruelty we have going on.”

Floyd adds Nagel will start his new position later this month.
