Public Safety department wants to discipline sheriff's license

Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon has 30 days to answer the Missouri's Public Safety department's complaint that Dixon's peace officer's certification should be disciplined.

And the state's Administrative Hearing Commission scheduled the hearing on that complaint for 9 a.m. Jan. 6.

If the commission finds that the certification "is subject to discipline," state law requires Public Safety Director Jerry Lee to hold a hearing within 30 days of that finding, "to determine the form of discipline to be imposed" — including probation, suspension or permanent revocation.

The department filed its request for the AHC hearing just over three weeks after Dixon pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of harassing a woman who also is a city police officer in Belle.
