They are Austin Promes, at left, Jordan Osier and Mitch Lunn, right. Each officer has completed 260 hours of training during the last 18 months and makes a committment to working 30 hours per quarter. Webster County Sheriff Jim Stubbs, who was once a reservist himself, welcomed them. “It’s a good feeling to serve the people of Webster County and Fort Dodge,” he said.
