Community Friends,

There is an old saying, “The good Lord willing, and the Creeks don’t rise.” And while several classic songs helped to immortalize saying into our culture, it had nothing to do water and flooding. Ironically, it originated with the 1813 Creek Nation uprising in the Mississippi Territory. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff report – Week of April 23, 2017

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 23rd

Community Friends,

Lyon County has some great crime related numbers to boast about. Over the past two years our crime rate index is down 33-percent to a rate that hasn’t been experienced since 2007. Our burglaries dropped 36-percent last year, while our recidivates were reduced by 8-percent. The LCSO worked hard to achieve this type of success, but we didn’t do it alone. These numbers are the result of good policies through collaborative efforts with our county and city partners that includes our community friends. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 16th

Community Friends,

Like many of you, there are times when we are frustrated by layers of a bureaucratic system. Occasionally, we get an opportunity to rejoice, especially as it relates to the young and vulnerable. This week was one of those small victories as we assisted in removing a two-year old boy from drug addict parents and placing him with a family member through an emergency guardianship order. We never lose hope, as we look at saving the world, one child at a time. Read more ›

This week’s message is about heroes and a glimpse into their stories. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of March 12th  

Community Friends,

One never knows when something said could produce a profound learning lesson. A Fernley business owner once stated, “Every so often, we give up power by choosing one of our own to keep the peace and enforce the laws.” While this individual has no law enforcement background, he is extremely grounded in the principles of liberty as it relates to our constitution. A very wise man indeed. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of March 5th

Community Friends,

Our week was filled with two great community events. On Monday Dayton Elementary hosted a coordinated Career Day for several area elementary schools. Some of our dispatchers and a deputy represented the LCSO to interact with 4th, 5th, and 6th NewsDesk March 12, 2017 - McNeilgraders. On Wednesday, we participated with our Department of Corrections partners for a Special Olympics Tip-a-Cop fundraiser at Dayton’s 1st & Ten restaurant. It was a great turnout as we raised quite a bit of money to support Special Olympics Nevada. From the law enforcement community, we thank you for the support. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of February 26th

Community Friends,

Several years ago, an illegal alien kidnapped his ex-wife, drove her into the desert, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. Fortunately, she was able to escape, call the Sheriff’s Office as he fled into the desert. We tracked him to a home that he broke into to escape apprehension. We knew the family who occupied the home: a mother, father, and daughter who were also illegal aliens. We afforded this family constitutional 4th Amendment protections as they gave us consent to search their home for the fugitive. We found him hiding under their master bedroom bed. Read more ›
