Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
What rights do Nebraska sheriffs, as elected officials, have? What power do County Boards of Supervisors have over a Sheriff? Is it possible for one elected official (Sheriff) to file a grievance against another elected official (County Clerk) for interfering with his/her job? Please point me in the right direction to find the answers to my questions.
It's a little more complicated, in that the Board is playing into the Clerk's hands by allowing itself to be hyped up by the Clerk. The Board has done things it is not legally allowed to do, such as place the emergency center in the hands of a non-certified jailer, and the County Attorney fails to correct or set the problem straight. The County Attorney should be the Sheriff's legal representative, but he is not acting it.
