Shier to return as CAP officer
Lenny Shier, former Colby-Abbotsford police officer who left the force to become an Army National Guard recruiter in 1987, has notified the Colby- Abbotsford Police Commission he will return to his officer’s position in April of 1990. That is Shier’s privilege according to federal law, reported Police Chief Ron Gosse. Persons entering the armed forces are given a four-year grace period in which they can ask for their old position back. They then have 90 days after their departure from the armed forces to claim that job. There is no loss of seniority.
Shier was a Colby-Abbotsford offi cer from 1980 to 1987. Since then he has been a recruiter for the National Guard in the Phillips and Medford areas. His letter to the commission stated that he would return to law enforcement in mid-April of 1990.
Gosse said the commission had been involved in testing and interviewing activities to hire a replacement for Officer Bill Hussong, who resigned two months ago. Shier’s communication means the department will be working one person short for six months. The chief said the situation has forced shifting of scheduled and resulted in more oncall time for the men.
