(KLZA)-- Richardson County Sheriff Don Pounds has submitted a letter of resignation.

The letter was received Saturday. Richardson County Commissioners are expected to consider the resignation Tuesday during their regular weekly meeting.

It is also expected the Board will appoint an interim Sheriff until a permanent successor is appointed.

In May, during a public meeting in Humboldt, organized by Sheriff Pounds, a point of contention was the new CRIMES software program and installation which Commissioners voted to install on a server at the City office in Falls City. During the meeting Pounds said if the system were installed on the city server, he would resign due to the amount of liability he had, and felt he would not have control over the information in the system.

Commissioners have since agreed to have the records system installed at the Richardson County Law Enforcement Center.

Pounds also stated during the meeting in Humboldt it was his opinion the Falls City Police Department was attempting to take over the Sheriff's Department, suggesting if he were to resign a Falls City Police Officer would be appointed Sheriff.

Pounds served one full-term as Sheriff and was re-elected with no opposition with his second four-year term in office starting this past January.

When appointed, the new sheriff will fulfill the remainder of the term, until January, 2022.
