A judge issued a temporary injunction ordering Beaver County Sheriff David George to stop hiring out uniformed deputies to work private security details.

Beaver County commissioners sought the action because they contend county code prohibits the practice, permitting only the commissioners to enter into contracts on behalf of the county.

Senior Judge John A. Bozza's ruling on Monday does not stop deputies from working security details for “government units or government-sponsored events,” according to court documents. Bozza ordered a hearing to determine whether to issue a permanent injunction.
