On Thursday, during an emergency meeting, the Board of University and School Lands approved $51,814 from the state's oil impact grant fund for an additional sheriff's vehicle.

Jurgens' vehicle had only 5,000 miles before the engine failed. It is expected to be covered by the vehicle's warranty, with repairs expected to take at least a month.

Jurgens is currently using a personal vehicle while on patrol, said Lance Gaebe, commissioner of the state's Department of Trust Lands.
