Public Hearing on Sheriff’s Office Drone Aircraft
Minnesota Statutes 626.19 requires a public hearing prior to the sheriff’s office use of a drone aircraft.
The hearing is scheduled for the regular county board meeting December 15th.
The Pine County Sheriff’s Office is considering the implementation of Body Worn Cameras. MN state statute 626.8473 requires that we provide an opportunity for public comment before we purchase or implement body cameras. It also requires the county board to allow for public comment at a regularly scheduled meeting. Finally, we also must allow and consider public comment as we develop the policy for the body worn camera system.
Please mail any comments regarding the use of body cameras to:
Sheriff Jeff Nelson
635 Northridge Drive NW, suite 100
Pine City, MN 55063

The public meeting will be scheduled for February 18th at the North Pine Government Center in Sandstone.
