Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 17th

Community Friends,

There were quite a few items that were placed in front of our commissioners and approved this week. Approximately two months ago, we were approached by a company that wanted to lease wall space in our detention facility to advertise bail bond companies and defense attorneys. For $10,000 a year, how could we say “No?” The lease agreement was approved. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 10th

Community Friends,

Human behavior is an interesting topic, especially as it relates to crime and punishment. Our leadership directs specific road patrols because of speed complaints. We sit on that road, watching traffic and surprisingly, everyone obeys the posted speed limit. Occasionally someone gets caught speeding, but it was usually the person who made the complaint. The neighborhood sees us, but we routinely get pulled away to handle higher priority calls. Did we really solve anything? Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of March 27th

Community Friends,

The previous week, our VIPs got to do a little “highway robbery” at the intersections of Hwy 95A and 50 in Silver Springs. They were helping our Senior Centers raise money for their senior food programs. By holding a boot, drivers generously donated $2,300 as they passed by. It is always uplifting to hear news of Lyon County citizens giving for worthy causes. Read more ›
