In a move that he says he saw coming, newly sworn in Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley fired Commander Russ Wright and hired John Gautney from the Bend Police Department.  Wright, who, after eight years with Crook County, had planned to retire in March say he understood that it was the Sheriffs right to hire and fire whomever he pleases.  Wright told our news partner News Channel 21: "When a new Sheriff comes in, he can dismiss an individual without cause, because he's an at-will employee and serves at the Sheriff's pleasure." The new Undersheriff, John Gautney has been working with bend police as head of the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team.
