Since 1851, the Howard County sheriff's deputies had been working without job protection and became the last deputies in the state to be at-will employees who could be let go for any reason. Despite lingering fear that a newly elected sheriff could clear out the office, repeated efforts to get job protection for the deputies failed until last year, when Cpl. Andrew S. Mackert helped form a Fraternal Order of Police lodge. Since that time, the group has embarked on a campaign to win its members job protection rights and raise money for fallen officer and scholarship funds.
