Frederick, Baker Selected For Board
By Bill Vander Weele
Roosevelt County now has two members on the board of directors for the Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers.
Sheriff Jason Frederick will be serving his second term on the board. Recently, deputy Jason Baker was voted to also be on the 10-person board.
The board consists of five sheriffs and five under sheriffs or deputies. A rural county like Roosevelt County having two members is quite impressive. The board meets quarterly and also has committee conference calls.
“The board helps in the state but with local things as well,” Frederick said. “It brings tons of resources back to our county.”
The association works on legislative issues and testify on bills that are important for law enforcement in Montana.
The mission of the Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is to improve the effectiveness of and to provide support for professional law enforcement in Montana. The Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is the professional organization for sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, detention officers and other sworn law enforcement officers. MSPOA is an association firmly rooted in tradition, ceremony and collegiality among sheriffs, deputies and law enforcement across the state.
MSPOA has an honorary membership program, which is for civilians and a positive way for members of communities to be involved with and support their local law enforcement.
