According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Jeff Jaeger will not seek re-election this fall.

Jaeger has spent 38 years as a law enforcement officer and 11 years as sheriff. He said it was a difficult decision to make given his passion for the job and the great relationships he’s developed over the years.

Some of the successes he cited in the press release were “an increased focus on illegal drug dealers” and “the development of two K-9 teams.”

Jaeger says he feels confident about the future of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and endorsed Senior Patrol Lieutenant Ken Schneider as the next Lincoln County Sheriff.
