BEND, OR -- Tuesday is Larry Blanton's last day as Deschutes County Sheriff, after eight years in the top job and nearly 40 years in law enforcement. 

 
Sheriff Blanton tells KBND, "I’ve already got a job, but I can’t really say much about it – I should say, I’ve had a couple of offers I’m considering. I hope I don’t get too committed or strung out. After 35 years of essentially being on call 24/7, it makes you a little bit weird. I don’t know what I’d be very good at sitting around."
 
Captain Shane Nelson will take over as Sheriff on Wednesday, July first. He will be sworn in at 8:30 a.m. at the Deschutes County Services building.
