Sheriff’s Message, Week of December 25th   

Community Friends,

Welcome to the New Year, as we survived 2016 together. Looking back, the murders of Toni Davis (Dayton), Johnnie Shadden (Yerington) and Robert Buchanan (Silver Springs) really shocked each community. Unprecedented was two officer involved shootings and two separate reckless vehicle pursuits with drug impaired drivers that had to be stopped; one who threatened the safety of a neighborhood and the other who drove into oncoming I-80 traffic.

Community Friends,

The term “Sea lawyer” has been applied to many young Marines for generations by Marine Corp leadership. A sea lawyer is a legal expert, but in reality they know nothing. This week, much of social media was flooded with comments by these legal experts. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of December 4th

Community Friends,

This week’s big event was our movement into the new Silver Springs substation. We are now co-located with Lyon County’s Human Services, who provide many support services such as a health nurse, WIC, senior services, and case management for families and individuals. Our assessments identified that law enforcement and Human Services were interacting with the same individuals, but our respective agencies did not know each others capabilities. By co-locating, we strengthen our operational bonds while becoming more efficient. Silver Springs is our pilot program, and our future goal is to eventually join together in Dayton and Fernley to better serve those communities. Read more ›

Community Friends,

One thing we have learned during the Christmas Season, is that there are many community and regional programs targeting families who are struggling with hardships. While their efforts are commendable, they complete for the same resources. Our Shop with a Sheriff program was one of those and unfortunately, we suspended the program because of resource availability. We will continue to assist community and regional programs such as Angel Tree, Boys & Girls Club, Toys for Tots, Cram a Cruiser, Lyon County Human Services, and other non-profit organizations.

Sheriff’s Message, Week of November 20th

Community Friends,

An old adage wrongfully attributed to Winston Churchill states a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. What he did say was “For myself I am an optimist—it does not seem to be much use being anything else….” A life filled with optimism produces less life stresses, which has shown to prevent chronic disease, and helped people live longer, happier, and more productive lives. The recent election results, regardless of the chosen candidate or ballot question has produced many pessimists on both sides; I however, have chosen to be an optimist. Read more ›

Community Friends,

Our Search & Rescue need to be our heroes this month. On Nov 4th they searched for 77 year old Larry Hyatt in Silver Springs.  That ended tragically; on Nov 14th it was a missing person in the Como Mountains who was left abandoned by friends. He was found safe after a cold night and arrested for warrants; Nov 16th was the 16 year old Silver Springs’ female who was found the next day; and on Nov 18th, it was the 11 year old insulin dependent boy search who was found about 1:00 a.m. Read more ›

“When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you – you know our nation is doomed,” wrote Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged.”

Every day brings vehement vigor to the current presidential election! It is anyone’s guess as to what will have transpired on the election front before this column breaks. Read more ›
