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.
