Grant County Sheriff Reggie Nevels said he was “shocked” and “devastated” when he was made aware of racially insensitive posts made by a sheriff’s department employee, and he is now determining what discipline will be appropriate.

Debra Wallen, who works as an evidence technician with the department’s Joint Effort Against Narcotics (JEAN) Team, shared at least two posts with racially offensive content on Facebook, according to screenshots of her profile that have since been posted to Youtube.
