Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer
People have asked state sheriff's association to investigate Sheriff Palmer's conduct regarding refuge occupation.
The Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association has been asked to investigate the conduct of Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer.
Association President Brian Wolfe, the sheriff of Malheur County, said, at the request of citizens, an executive board would be looking into Palmer’s conduct regarding the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to determine whether to launch an official investigation.
“What the association will do is look at all the facts: We’ll gather evidence and information, and then if we think there is a violation of the state sheriffs’ (association) bylaws or ethics, then we would take whatever would be the appropriate action,” he said. “We would just want to make sure, first of all, that sheriffs in Oregon are following the law and following their oath.”
