INYO COUNTY, CA, January 20, 2022 – The Inyo County Board of Supervisors held a special meeting yesterday afternoon to interview Inyo County Sheriff applicants in order to fill the Sheriff’s Office vacancy left by former Sheriff Jeff Hollowell following his retirement.
The meeting was a public format accessible via Zoom.
Four candidates applied for the position; one candidate declined to interview. Acting Sheriff Eric Pritchard was ultimately selected by the Board in a unanimous but extensively debated decision.
