Sheriff Joe Myers (in photo) said, “We've applied for a couple grants with the governor and the (Attorney General’s) Office. They want us to get our D.A.R.E. officers back into the schools, so we're going to apply for that grant, hopefully we can get it again.”

HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio — Some of the officers who will lead Harrison County in the coming years have been sworn in.

The men taking an oath on Tuesday have already served at least one term at their post.

They have experience under their belt, and they’re looking forward to making more progress in 2017.

Sheriff Joe Myers (in photo) was sworn-in for his third term. He says he plans to continue to crack down on crime.

“We’ve applied for a couple grants with the governor and the (Attorney General’s) Office,” Myers said. “They want us to get our D.A.R.E. officers back into the schools, so we’re going to apply for that grant, hopefully we can get it again.”

Commissioner Dale Norris is about to begin his second term. He’s dedicated to improving county facilities like the courthouse and government center.

“Keep the county functioning, keep the county improving, working endlessly to provide jobs for the people of the county so they have a future here,” Norris said.

And Robert Sterling took an oath as county engineer. He already served for five terms, and is headed into his sixth.

The offices of sheriff, commissioner and engineer are all 4-year terms.

Additional officers will be sworn in in the coming days.
