BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton has been named "Sheriff of the Year" by the Oregon State Sheriff's Association.  Sheriff Blanton was honored during the group's annual meeting, happening this week at the Riverhouse in Bend.  

 

Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers presented the award and says it’s a prestigious honor.  "This award is given once a year, but it’s not given every year, and it’s based upon a member sheriff’s participation and contribution to the Sheriff’s Association. It really signifies exemplary service and it goes beyond just being a member but actually demonstrated steps of this exemplary service."

 

Sheriff Blanton was recognized for his leadership and continual involvement in the Oregon State Sheriff's Association business and his personal interest in the development and training of elected sheriffs.
