At Monday's county commissioners' meeting, Nolan County Sheriff David Warren presented the state-mandated 2012 Racial Profiling Report for the Nolan County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), which was formally received by the commissioners.
For the 2012 calendar year, a total of 277 people were stopped by Nolan County Sheriff's Office deputies.
From the total, six contacts led to a search, in which five of those contacts consented to the search. Ten contacts resulted in an arrest, and 189 total tickets were issued.
The 2012 Annual Human Resources report for Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH) was presented during the Nolan County Hospital District's board meeting on Monday night.
The report was given by Gay Nell Cherry, the Director of Human Resources for the hospital.
While the report follows the format from the previous year, some changes were made in the last year in order to make scoring more accurate in the evaluation process. As a result, the user-friendly tool now offers a true performance evaluation in determining scores.
