Republican Women to hear Pierini

Staff reports

The Douglas County Republican Women’s Club will meet Wednesday, March 4, at the Carson Valley Inn.

The guest speaker is Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini. Sheriff Pierini has 24 years of full-time law enforcement experience and over 20 years with Douglas County.

Since his appointment as sheriff in October 1997, he has instituted many changes, improvements and new programs in the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, including enhanced “zero tolerance” to gangs and drug activity, better communications with schools, the DARE and GREAT programs for our community’s youth and the senior TRIAD program. He has instituted a program for the use of more effective traffic enforcement units, including a volunteer handicapped parking patrol. In September, the first Senior Law Enforcement Academy started with approximately 45 persons, and another Senior Academy is due to start in March, said Republican Women’s Club spokesperson Shaaron Snead.

Sheriff Pierini is also very active in the community, with associations too numerous to mention. He was recently awarded the “Citizen of the Year” award for 1997 by the Minden/Douglas Elks Lodge to a standing room only crowd.

“Get your lunch reservations in early, as this is sure to be a meeting of interest to everyone,” Snead said. “Everyone is invited.

The meeting will begin with social hour at 11 a.m. followed by lunch and the program at noon. Call for reservations by noon, Monday, March 2, at 266-3435, 267-5066 or 265-1189.
