Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher announced on Friday that Deputy Zesar Huerta has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant. Sgt. Huerta is working towards his Associates Degree in Business Management and should be finished next semester.
Sgt. Huerta started out as a correctional officer with Cimarron Correctional Facility in Oklahoma. After graduating from the police academy at MSSU in 2017, Sgt. Huerta joined the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office. Since that time, Sgt. Huerta has held the county Dare officer position as well as being a Field Training Officer.
Sheriff Mosher said, “Deputy “Z”, as he is commonly known by the kids in the schools, never hesitates to stop and talk to the kids, help someone change a tire or be a listening ear. I know in this new position he’ll continue to be a great asset to our community.”
