Earlier this summer we told you that the Lake Ozark Police Department was back to full staff. Now they have a big hole to fill with the departure of an officer who had been with them for nearly a decade. Detective Shane Pierce has left the department to relocate out of state. Chief Gary Launderville says he’ll certainly be missed.
The Chief says they’ll look both within the department as well as outside the agency for Pierce’s replacement, but he adds that they won’t rush the decision.
Pierce’s departure became effective earlier this month.
