Monday evening’s (Feb. 2, 2015) Drudge Report included a link to an AP story on Yahoo News about the dust up over newly-elected Sublette County Sheriff Stephen Haskell changing the department uniform requirements which now bans officers from wearing cowboy hats and boots. The new dress code is apparently part of the reason long-time Deputy Gene Bryson decided to retire after 28 years with the department and about 40 years total in law enforcement. The Yahoo AP story is based off a story that appeared in the Casper Star-Tribune yesterday (Sunday, Feb. 1). The story showed up on the front page of FoxNews on Monday evening as well. The articles include quotes from Sheriff Haskell and Deputy Bryson as well as pictures, including several of SCSO officers wearing the uniform that is the department’s new look.
