Swayzee Marshal to Resign-Deputies Patrolling Town
Off-duty Grant County Sheriff’s deputies are now patrolling the streets of Swayzee, since the Town Marshal is no longer working and is expected to resign soon.
Swayzee Town Board members have hired several off duty Grant County Sheriff’s deputies to patrol the town to make sure it’s covered 24-hours a day by law enforcement officers.
Town Marshal Mike Jones is no longer on duty according to town officials and they say they expect Jones to resign soon. No reason has been given for the expected resignation.
This isn’t the first time such practice has involved sheriff’s deputies helping to cover a town without police officers. A similar situation occurred last year in Sweetser after the town’s entire police force resigned.
