Two Mono deputies earn SWAT credential

Press release

The Mono County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the successful completion and graduation of Sergeant Tim Minder and Deputy Scott Minder from the Special Weapons and Tactics Team Training (SWAT) through the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.

SWAT Training

The completion of this credential allows the Mono County Sheriff’s Office to serve as the operator for the joint Special Enforcement Detail of the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office, Mono County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bishop Police Department.

Inyo County Sheriff’s Office and Bishop Police Department have
been on the forefront of collaborative efforts to enhance the paucity of law enforcement resources to the Eastern Sierra/Nevada Community.

I would like to thank Inyo County Sheriff Bill Lutze and Bishop Police Chiefs Chris Carter (Ret.) and current Chief Ted Stec for their forethought in this joint venture.

I also want to acknowledge the Mono County Sheriff’s Office personnel for volunteering for this assignment as a further commitment to public safety in Mono County.

Congratulations Tim and Scott!

Are you kidding? Mono County only has sheriffs on duty half-time. Thankfully we have very little in the way of serious crime on the east side. Complete unreadiness isn’t a good idea.
