Mayor and City Council are proud to announce that we hired Jared Shepard for our Chief of Police. He started with Minatare January 3, 2022.
Jared began his career in law enforcement with the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office in December of 2011 and graduated from the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center Basic Academy in April of 2012.
He remained employed by the Sheriff’s Office to mid-2016 when he and his family moved to Washington State. Jared worked as an officer for the city of Wenatchee for just over 5 years before he and his family relocated back to the Scottsbluff area.
Throughout his career Jared has served in the capacity of a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, School Resource Officer and SWAT Team Operator, and now the New Chief of Police for Minatare Nebraska. Jared and his wife have two daughters, Ruth and Bette. Jared and his family are happy to be back in Western Nebraska with family and friends.
