Outgoing Crook County Sheriff Rodd Clark is leaving office on a high note. One of his employees has gained state wide accolades for his conscientious work at the jail. Crook County Sheriff's Office Jail Commander Al Bond was recently chosen as the Oregon State Sheriff's Association Jail Commander of the year. And the reason is clear; he is able to maintain the jail with some real positive reinforcement: "Well, it's to treat people the way the way you'd want to be treated and do you best to do the right thing, is the model that we use from where we learned at the command college that I attended 3-4 years ago. And I try to hold those standards, even prior to that time and up to today." Sheriff Clark says Bond has a very effective way of handling prisoners: “In order to keep inmates happy and compliant and not looking for ways to cause trouble and escape, he's developed several programs that rewarded the prisoners for positive activity. And they've responded really well to that. They have a nickname; they call it 'Grandma's House'". Clark says Bond's programs and methods of running the jail have saved them plenty of money over the years. He adds that he really had to trick the normally humble Bond into coming to the convention where he was surprised with the award.
