BECKLEY - Although former Beckley Police officer Jeff Shumate retired last week after more than 20 years of service, he is back to work on Friday in Raleigh County.  Shumate is filling a position at the Prosecuting Attorney's office that has been vacant since the 1980s.  He will take on a variety of roles such as reviewing cases to see if further investigation is needed, locating witnesses and answering victims' questions.  The office hopes his presence on staff will also help to speed cases up, therefore relieving some of the financial burden.
