Cascade County in Montana covers almost 2700 square miles and has a population of just over 80,000 Montanans. The job of protecting Cascade County rests with the Cascade County Sheriff’s Department and its leader, Sheriff Jesse Slaughter.
Before taking office just over 25 months ago, Sheriff Slaughter spent several years taking down bad guys who trafficked and exploited children as a member of an internet crime unit, working in cooperation with federal authorities.
As stated on the Cascade County Sheriff website:
The Sheriff’s Office primary concern is the safety and well-being of all persons and property in Cascade County.
Sheriff Jesse Slaughter is indeed committed to the well-being of all persons and property in Cascade County, but he raised the bar for service last month when he introduced a program for rural schools that puts deputies in the classroom teaching students about the US Constitution.
In addition to his rural education initiative, Sheriff Slaughter formed a program that rewards his deputies if they volunteer to take classes on the Constitution then submit a certificate of completion.
When taking into account the many proactive measures put in place by Sheriff Slaughter, there can be no doubt that he has cemented his role as a trailblazer in the realm of Constitutional Sheriffs.
In a recent interview on Montana Gazette Radio, Sheriff Slaughter briefly outlined the aforementioned programs to the great delight of the President of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, Richard Mack, who also joined Jesse on the interview.
