Teton County Sheriff’s Office Restructures

September 26, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments

Some changes are under way at the Teton County Sheriff’s Department in efforts to make the operations of the department more effective.  Teton County Sheriff Jim Whalen explains that the system being replaced placed too many responsibilities on the department’s captains.  Whalen explains that as many as four or five different departments were under the control of the two captains which is a lot of responsibility.  He said he wanted to spread out that responsibility some. The system Whalen is returning to utilizes an Undersheriff to take over some of the administrative duties of the two Lieutenants and level out the responsibilities.  As far as those seeking service from the Sheriff’s Department are concerned, Whalen says the changes will not be all that visible.  The new undersheriff will be Robert Gilliam who is currently a Lieutenant with Jackson Police Department and will move to the county for the position.  The two Lieutenants will be supervised by Gilliam. Whalen says the change is purely organizational. Under Gilliam, Lieutenant Slade Ross will oversee operational services replacing Tripp Wilson who is retiring, and Lieutenant Alyssa Watkins will oversee support services.  Whalen says the undersheriff system has not been in use in the Teton County Sheriff’s office for 13 years.  The restructuring of the department is slated to take place October 8th.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
