Support and Retain Sheriff Cory Hutcheson
This petition is directed to the Missouri Department of Public Safety, the Mississippi County Commission, and the Mississippi County Courts. As Sheriff, Cory Hutcheson has partnered with the community and other law enforcement agencies to restore trust in the Sheriff’s Office, and has all but eliminated illegal drugs from our communities.
This progress is threatened by allegations of misconduct, including claims first investigated in 2014 but not acted upon until four months into his term as Sheriff. It is imperative for the continued improvement of our County that Sheriff Hutcheson be permitted to retain his POST license pending disposition of these legal issues.
We, the undersigned residents of Mississippi County, Missouri, know Cory Hutcheson to be a man of character, and hereby express our support and desire to retain Cory Hutcheson as our Sheriff.
