                        MONTANAN OF THE WEEK 

     Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, I rise today to recognize Sergeant Tim Lingle of the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s office. Sergeant Lingle has recently been named the Montana American Legion Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.  

     Sergeant Lingle has been living and working in Roosevelt County for 15 years, nine of those years has been for the county’s sheriff’s office. He started his Montana Law Enforcement career with Poplar Police Department in 2000, then moved to the Fort Peck Department of Law and Justice before transferring to Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office. 

     Sgt. Lingle serves the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office not only as a Sergeant but also as deputy coroner, firearms instructor and as the Culbertson/Bainville/Froid contract deputy. He has also served the state of Montana as a member of the American Legion and has attended training as a driving instructor and a DARE instructor. 

     Sgt. Lingle has always gone the extra mile for the county, community and the Sheriff’s Office. He never fails to show his loyalty and passion to the citizens of Roosevelt County. 

     I would also like to highlight the recent efforts by Sergeant Lingle and the entire Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office in the search of missing 4-year-old Maci Lilley. Whom I am happy to report has been found and reunited with her family.  

     Thank you Sergeant Lingle and all of Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office for their tireless efforts and dedication to law enforcement for the state of Montana.
