Four Corners Cops Without Borders agreement renewed
Sheriffs from Alachua, Bradford, Clay and Putnam counties renewed the Memorandum of Understanding, also known as Four Corners Cops Without Borders, at a special signing Tuesday in Melrose.
The document allows cross-county jurisdiction among agencies and allows deputies to pursue violent felony offenders in the any of the four counties.
The memorandum is the only one of its kind in the United States, Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said.
The agreement has been renewed three times since its establishment in 2008. Officials say this cooperation between counties shows the commitment of the four sheriffs to keeping the overall community safe.
