New humane officer

Deputy Dean Merlak is Price County’s new humane officer, handling all domestic animal-related cases in the county.

This October, Dean Merlak — a longtime deputy for the Price County Sheriff’s Department — stepped into the role of humane officer for Price County.

The position was recently transitioned by Price County government from a private contractor to an on-staff employee of the Sheriff’s Department. The change signals a shift in how animal cases will be handled by law enforcement.
