What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Sheriff's Office should be dedicated to protecting the public, preserving the peace, reducing the threat and fear of crime, improving the quality of life within our communities and always placing humanity first. We should be committed to doing the right thing, the right way, and for the right reasons by establishing within ourselves integrity. We should hold our- selves to the highest standards of ethical and moral conduct. We should be role models and define honesty, sincerity and establishing trust within our communities. We should be pro- fessional well -trained proficient officers evoking professional- ism, fairness, and compassion. We should treat members of our communities impartially while honoring and appreci- ating their diverse cultures. We should be consistent and devoted in protecting the con- stitutional rights of all. Lastly, we should be compas- sionate. We should treat people with respect dignity and under- standing. My name is Paul Oldynski. I am running for Sheriff of Beaverhead County.
